What's truly sad is that if the mental midget there wants to strap a briggs to a 2x4 and smear his dumb@ss from here to the second coming of Christ, I say let him. Doesn't deserve to live, anyhow. But my concern is some barely adolescent kid monkeying around in Daddy's garage looking up to this modern-day Einstein that's gonna unwittingly become a statistic. I'm inclined to become a YouTube member so I can post a comment regarding this gentleman's obvious hyperintelligence...
