    Of course the decision to close this thread was absolutely correct, no doubt about it.

    My first thought when I saw it, was to report it let nature take its course. But I was also thinking about that eight year old asperger-diagnosed super-IQ kid that I know, who would ask questions like that. Therefore I just attempted to explain the problems with ideas like that and steer him into the right direction.

    I know, it's a conflict but education is the primary objective and I felt that this kid of mine would be very hurt with closing his thread.
