Two-year-old 'Matilda' becomes youngest ever girl in Mensa

Her parents knew Georgia Brown was bright. After all, she could count to ten, recognized her colors and was even starting to dabble with French.
But it was only when their bubbly little two-year-old took an IQ test that her towering intellect was confirmed.
Georgia has become the youngest female member of Mensa after scoring a genius-rated IQ of 152.

Georgia Brown has an official genius-rated IQ - Intelligence Quotient - of 152
This puts her in the same intellectual league, proportionate to her age, as physicist Stephen Hawking.
According to an expert in gifted children, Georgia is the brightest two-year-old she has ever met.
Parents Martin and Lucy Brown have always regarded their youngest child as a remarkably quick learner.

She was crawling at five months and walking at nine months.
By 14 months, she was getting herself dressed.
"She spoke really early - by 18 months she was having proper conversations," Mrs Brown said.
"She would say, 'Hello I'm Georgia, I'm one'. She was also putting her shoes on and putting them on the right feet."
Georgia was so perceptive that after one outing to the theatre to see Beauty and the Beast she solemnly informed her parents: "I didn't like Gaston (the villain). He was mean and arrogant."

Have you ever wonder why...

Why does a round pizza come in a square box?

Why is it that people say they "slept like a baby" when babies wake up like every two hours?

Why are you IN a movie, but you're ON TV?

Why do doctors leave the room while you change? They're going to see you naked anyway.

Why is "bra" singular and "panties" plural?

Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog's face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride, he sticks his head out the window?

Why are Irishman and Chinaman; are one word but any other countries man is two words. Example: American Man, Japanese Man, Russian Man, Turkish Man, Canadian Man.

Farewell, You Will Be Missed.

NORTH CHARLESTON, South Carolina (AP) -- Nine caskets lined the front of a coliseum as thousands of firefighters from across the nation, their hats in their hands as bagpipes played, honored nine colleagues who died battling a furniture store blaze.
Uniformed escorts walked the men's wives, siblings and children to their seats in a long procession of red carnations, tears and hugs.
Monday night's fire created the single largest loss of firefighters' lives since the September 11 terror attacks.
