I am amazed at the audacity of intelligent persons when they indulge in crime. These guys are the super duper intelligent people who can make computers talk their walk (or walk their talk)
And they are the same people who indulge in criminal activities, they bring grief to people and then land up in a prison cell. Just because they were too drunk with the thought they were too damn smart? Or they were downright foolish. I would say that they are foolish idiots.
So another incident which ranks somewhat high on the totem pole of incident infamy ........

A Polish teenager allegedly turned the tram system in the city of Lodz into his own personal train set, triggering chaos and derailing four vehicles in the process. Twelve people were injured in one of the incidents.
What was the kid thinking when he was playing with his new toy ! And now he has obviously messed up his future.
It is difficult to raise a child who is below average in grades and it seems that it is a bigger challenge when the child is a genius. Like all strengths genius has to be identified and channeled and the best persons to do this are the parents and school teachers. High time this was recognized (yes there is surely an awakening...... check out the statement by the MP in UK)
Just as the children are growing up with computers and gizmos in their hands we can get them to understand how it works to be the 'good guy' and that this can turn out to be as bad as anything else.
