    I schooled myself while attending public school. I taught myself to read when I was 2 years old. By age 5, I was reading at the 5th grade level. By the 5th grade, I was reading at the 10th grade level. I did it all by myself.

      You most have develop very fast, most of us are retards at age 2-5.
      I hated school and I didn’t get along with my parents, so my upbringing was like doing jail time.
      Not a good environment to study school stuff in.

    My grandparents raised me, and we got along very well. My teachers, from the 1st through the 6th grades, all let me do whatever I wanted. In the 5th grade, I would take 1 or 2 of my fellow students into the “cloak room,” close the door, and toss them about, teaching myself judo and jujitsu, from 2 books I had received by mail. From time to time, when my buds would land particularly hard against the wall, the teacher would open the door and ask me to “hold it down.” I would do this all day long, and I did it for a couple of months, actually teaching myself those moves, which I have long-since forgotten. One day, on the playground, after I had learned every hold and throw in both books, a friend of mine jumped on my back, with no warning, just goofing around. I immediately reached back, grabbed one of his arms, flipped him high, over my right shoulder, with him landing on his back, about 6 feet in front of me. He wasn’t hurt, at all, and I apologized profusely to him. I did it with BOOKS and semi-willing buddies.
