11-Year-Old Genius Says Video Games A Waste Of Time

Normally, you'd never listen to an 11-year-old kid; but this one's graduating with honors from East Los Angeles Community College this month with a degree in Liberal Studies. That could make him a genius, right?

Moshe Kai Cavalin started college when he was 8. He tutored his older classmates, scored some martial arts competition awards and is graduating with a 4.0. NBC Los Angeles News reports that the prodigy is planning on writing a book for kids on how to succeed in school.

Not on the agenda: playing video games.

"I feel it's a waste of time playing video games because it's not helping humanity in any way," says the 11-year-old, who wants to use his knowledge to change the world.


Clearly he's never played a Grand Theft Auto game. What better way to help humanity than using the game as education for what not to do to hookers with speeding vehicles? That's a lesson in humanity you can take right to the bank.

All joking aside though, I'm totally jealous. Only one more week to go before graduate school ends for me and I definitely am not graduating with a 4.0.
