    Around the same age, I gave a detailed presentation of how babies are made to a group of boys who didn't believe me. I backed up my thesis with articles from Good Housekeeping and pictures from Playboy.

    When I was 10, I was "grounded for life" for taking apart the piano. I did this to prove to my doubting friend that it was not only a stringed instrument, but also a percussive one.

    That was also the year that I became a "mathlete".
    That was also the year I started copywriting my original music with Library of Congress.

    At 12, I hated my step father and quickly learned to take the brakes off of his bike. After his accident, he caught me while I was dismantling the breaks from his car.

    When I was 15, I had graduated from high school. My mother said I was too young to go to college and that waiting a year or two at home would be the best thing for me. I promptly packed my bags and left while my parents were at work.
    You are magnificent!

    I was 5 when I first started using a computer.

    Apparently, in kindergarten, I didn't talk to anyone at lunch. If someone tried to strike up conversation, I just stared at them until they walked away. I was told this 18 years later, by someone who knew me SOLELY because of that. Also, that continued to be a trend of mine until half way through college.

    When drawing, there were several occasions that I started while in a room full of people, and when I looked up, everyone was gone and an hour had passed.

    My first best friend and I played by creating word puzzles.

    I tried to saw my nose off with the metal part of a ruler. When my mother told me that I was dark because of spending time outside, I replied that it was actually because of the amount of chocolate cookies I ate. I rationalized that I spent more time eating cookies than being outside.

    At 10, someone gave me a bunch of Magic cards during Latchkey. After gauging the gullibility of other kids, I promptly started charging them $1 to play a game with me. Unfortunately, my mom came in and put an end to it. I, of course, argued that the money was well-earned, as I provided a service that would otherwise be unavailable to them.

    At some point, I realized that immense knowledge of mathematics, as well as enough physical ability to perform a task, could allow a person to any task perfectly. Having come to this conclusion, I stopped caring about math. In hindsight, I wish I hadn't. I could be a video game developer right now.

    Nothing too out of the ordinary, as far as NTs go...

    I didn't really like playing with other kids. In preschool/elementary school, everyone wanted to "play house" - either with each kid fulfilling different roles in the family, or with all of us playing with a giant dollhouse. I thought it was stupid. "You already live in a house. You don't have to pretend. This is dumb." (I refused to play. Petulant child.)

    I loved reading and read throughout recess and free periods. Our classes were divided - "learning" readers and "advanced" readers. I was beyond both of them, so I got to sit in a corner on a beanbag and read by myself. I was overjoyed.

    I was a big fan of computers, even when I was very young. Magic School Bus software, Oregon Trail, etc. That was my form of 'play', and I loved it.

    I hated - *hated* - being controlled, even as a little kid. We were told to journal, which I did - and enjoyed - but we were to write on each page in sequential order, as was the norm. For whatever reason, that felt stifling to me. So I wrote on random pages. This was fine until I was told to read one of my entries to the class. "Uh... let me find it..."

    I was a little gymnast, so when I was bored I would practice at home. One evening someone put on a Winnie the Pooh tape in the basement and told me to watch it. I liked the solace of the basement, but there was a camera down there, so my stepmother could surveil my siblings and I. I hated the camera. Anyway, I was practicing my gymnastics on the couch (bad idea, in retrospect) when I did a flip, flew off and smacked my head on the corner of our coffee table. My immediate concern wasn't my injury (I was bleeding everywhere), but the load of shit I would be in. Between sobs I looked for the camera's blind spot and hid in it.

    I was very imaginative and loved fantasy. At one point I convinced my friends that we were actually the Sailor Scouts. I was Sailor Moon, but regretted that when I realized that she was a bit slow and forever relied upon her friends. I would create these fantasy scenarios pretty frequently.

    That's all for now. I'm sure I'll think of more.

    Dude, I could've written this. I actually checked to see that it wasn't, in fact, me, late last night.

    When I was a young child I cut out clothes for stuffed animals in the house..My mom said they fit perfectly.

    I took apart my Dad's camera..which he got angry about. I wanted to see how it worked.

    One time at Thanksgiving with some relatives I noticed a broken tape recorder.. I fashioned a piece of aluminum to cross a circuit for the tape recorder to work..The power switch was faulty.
