Crazy Smart Teens

Anybody watching the Jeopardy Teen Tournament? These kids are unbelievable! It's now confirmed that I'm an idiot. I think that I'll get another beer.

Funny and sad...and I would say the majority do not. It is kinda fun to watch them freak out when I give them a $10 bill and 2 dimes for a $5.18 tab. Some (few) can get that one but it is painful to watch if I give them $1.03 for a .78 tab.

Most can't count the change back to you either, just hand you some bills and coins and hope you can't count either.

My kid is no exception, he's on the high functioning side of the autistic scale with a very high IQ and can do anything imaginable with computers, software and networking (interning at NASA for 2nd summer and was offered a job when he graduates in a year), but when it comes to money he is not good at counting out change. Although to his credit he fully admits the fact he struggles doing it unless he has a computer/calculator/register telling him the change he needs to give back.
