I was three and a half. I had been up all night the night before,
helping Richard Feynman with some equations that were giving him
trouble. I finished the test in an hour, because I had to catch a plane
to New York. I only had time for a brief nap before my debut
at Carnegie Hall that night. ;-)

No, actually I was 17. I took the test at the beginning of my senior
year. In those days the scores weren't rounded off, and the SAT wasn't
given to 11 year olds.

Oh... That explains a lot. I'm impressed (with your posts, not your SATs).
Seriously, no sarcasm intended.

But I still say your statement is a non sequitur.
