Warm brains

Normally I'm not so impressed by raw intelligence, because most of it seems to be wasted. But here is a guy who built a working fusion (fusion, not fission) at 14! And even better, he seems to have also an exceptional feel for what could be productive. (For example he invented a better way of detecting if nuclear material is smuggled in a ship.)

I can't believe you went on about the nuclear power stuff when clearly his other invention is much more interesting - time travel!

I didn't watch the video but based on the image here it looks like he has a 70's haircut and 70's clothes.

Maybe it's like that Brady Bunch movie, where they were living like it was the 60s but they were in the 90s.
