Earlier this year, Oscar, a two-year-old boy, became the youngest English person ever admitted to Mensa. He was tested as having an IQ over 160—as high as Einstein or Stephen Hawking. He has been ranked off the scale, because the Stanford-Binet test he took cannot measure above 160 IQ points.

"He is always asking questions. Every parent likes to think their child was special but we knew there was something particularly remarkable about Oscar," said his father, Joe Wrigley. "I'm fully expecting the day to come when he turns around and tells me I'm an idiot."

Here's an interview with Oscar and his parents. If Baby Oscar goes on to become some sort of child prodigy, then later finds great success in adulthood, we may have to update this list: 9 Child Prodigies (Who Actually Ended Up Doing Something).
