    I was playing on a minecraft server and there was a plugin that allowed you to extract Exp and turn it into an exp bottle... I played around with it and a few minutes later had around 3 billion exp.

    I slept on math class once in elementary...
    And my classmate woke me since we're gonna have a test.

    I aced the test, the only kid having perfect score to the amazement of my teacher and classmate. So they don't really mind me sleeping in class. Lol

    There is actually official dictionary entrance related to that, called percussive maintenance.

    I learned english before going to 6th grade : I wanted to play JRPG (on the Snes and Gameboy as my sister got a genesis later) but there was none translated in french at the time, so I played imported US games that I bought used with a hefty discount as the local gameshop was having a hard time selling them, thanks to a special cartridge adaptator (good old AD29, still work perfectly today) with an english-french dictonary on my lap... My teachers where quite surprised when I started english class at school :blobpopcorn_cool:

    To bad I can't do that anymore or that I didn't went for japanese at that time as I wouldn't have to worry about translators dropping webnovels nowadays and would had an even larger pool of game to play at that time and today :blob_teary:
    But right now I'm having a really hard time remembering all of the hiragana and katakana (so kanji will probably be the death of me) while I already can somehow understand what they are talking about about when I listen to animes or dramas without subtitles... That's quite frustrating ! :blobupset:

    I sent most of my childhood pretending to be really smart through a lot of books and creative licence. At one point in elementary school, I managed to trick everyone I knew into thinking these random grasses were beneficial to health and had them spend over an hour picking and eating them. I didn't touch that stuff.

    At the tender age of 5, I stripped my mothers sewing machine down to the frame. Sadly I was never able to put it back together though...

    I discovered that those colorful ball inside the wardrobe isn't actually candies... In a not pleasant way.

    It was in the elementary school I think?

    So we had this PC stand and one of its side wedges broke( I don't even know how but am sure it was me since I am the only child at home) so I was damn afraid my mum would see it. Therefore, I got superglue to join it. The superglue was a new bottle and me being a kid, I couldn't open it properly and squeezed a giant blob out of it when it finally opened which coincidently landed on my hair.

    I was never allowed to have a hair cut(school regulations) but that allowed me to have short hairs for a few months..... Nothing genius per se but at that time I was damn proud of the blessing in disguise

    Luckily I quickly spat it out when I bit it. It was a numbing cold and spicy taste akin to eating ice cube and chili while also getting your tongue electrocuted.

    If I swallowed it I wouldn't be here in the first place.

    Lol no. I was smart studies-wise, so everyone seemed to think I was brilliant at everything else. I knew jack, so I ended up regurgitating facts I found in books and making random things up.
