This kid will make you feel like an idiot.

Time to brush up on your multiplication and division skills.

According to the (Victoria, British Columbia) Times Colonist, Anthony Popa Urria has set the bar high by becoming the youngest Canadian to be inducted as a member of Mensa, the international high-IQ society. The kid isn’t even 3 years old yet and he already has an IQ score of 154.


In case you don’t have a high enough IQ yourself to know what the score necessarily means, let’s just say we’re talking pretty close to Einstein or Hawking kind of smart.

The impressive toddler is surpassing other kids his age and then some. The following is a list of things the nearly 3 year old can do:


Recite the alphabet forward and backward
Count to 1,000
List the planets in the solar system, days of the week,months in a year, and all four seasons
Speak 3 languages (English, Spanish, and some Romanian)
Read from books he’s never seen before
Write some words, including his own name
Solve complex puzzles
Identify capital cities on a map

And just in case you aren’t already feeling inadequate about your own intelligence level, it might help to know that Popa Urria isn’t the only toddler to become a member of Mensa this year. Emmelyn Roettger-who turned 3 last month and can read, write, count by twos, fives, and tens, and do simple math-was inducted a few months ago and is the youngest member of Mensa in the U.S.

Might as well toss your “I’m the proud parent of an honor student” bumper stickers out now and, while you’re making the trip, trash your own diplomas as well.
