Didn't exist when I was in school. My schoolteacher aunt once said a child like me today is what the teachers' call "severely gifted", smart enough to cause problems relating to normal kids.

Severely gifted, heh. I love that expression. But it can’t be so severe if you can “cure” it with a simple lobotomy!
