Beware of a racist sociopath
*I would like to warn any colored (brown, yellow, black) student wishing to study at the **_University of Glasgow_** in the United Kingdom to beware of a person called Dr. Michael Kenyon, who is a lecturer at the School of Physics & Astronomy at that university. Kenyon is a narcissistic, twisted racist sociopath. In 1998, Michael Kenyon was an undergraduate at University College London (UCL), and he lived at an accommodation leased by UCL (on Doughty Street, London WC1). From the beginning, he took a dislike to his next door neighbor, an Asian student studying at UCL. This Asian student was quiet and did not bother anyone. But Kenyon was a very different character. He was a manipulative, racist sociopath who hated people in general, but colored people in particular. Kenyon, on one occasion, cut out words from a newspaper and formed the words **_I Am A Paki Wanker_** and pasted the words on a piece of blank A4 paper and stuck it on the Asian student's door late one night, thinking that the Asian student would not discover it until next morning. On another occasion, Kenyon persuaded another resident at the building to write the words **_Vaseline Boy_** next to the Asian student's name on the phone list next to the public phone inside the building, because Kenyon wanted to humiliate the Asian student. The student who wrote the words **_Vaseline Boy_** at Kenyon's behest later regretted it and TipEx-ed it off and informed the Asian student about it. Kenyon also tried to get a couple of friends of the student who wrote **_Vaseline Boy_** to beat up the Asian student. That is how much he hated his Asian neighbor.*

*_(In the U.K., a "Paki" is a derogatory and offensive word that refers to Asian people from the Indian subcontinent. In other words, "Paki" would be as offensive a word as "nigger" is to black people, or "Chink" is to Oriental people)._*

*So what exactly triggered Kenyon's pathological hatred for his Asian neighbor (apart from the fact he was Asian)? Well, the Asian student's "crime" (in Kenyon's eyes) was to report Kenyon to UCL's Residence Office about the persistent loud music that came out of Kenyon's stereo **_every single night,_** and he would regularly play his music until 3 am. Yes, A M. Having asked Kenyon to respect his right to sleep on numerous occasions, with Kenyon completely ignoring him, the Asian student had no choice but to take this matter to the UCL authorities. UCL's Residence Officer wrote a warning letter to Kenyon, and this set him off, and his campaign of racial harassment against the Asian student intensified.*

*The Asian student, after months of racial abuse, decided to move to another residence altogether.  But this did not stop Kenyon from continuing to harass his victim. Kenyon got a hold of the Asian student's mobile phone statement after he (the Asian student) had left the Doughty Street residence (this statement was mistakenly sent to the student's old Doughty Street address), which allowed Kenyon to find out the student's mobile phone number. Kenyon left an anonymous message (with a heavily disguised voice) on the student's voicemail, which went like this: **_You are a Paki waaaaaaaaaaaaanker._** Imagine how the Asian student felt when he heard the message. The student took this matter to UCL's Dean of Students who strongly urged him to report this matter to the Police. A police report was lodged at the **_Holborn Police Station_** in London on 4 March 1999 against the racist coward, and the police treated this as a hate crime.*

And yet none of these great people have solved the biggest problems faced by humanity:
renewable energy, global warming, war and peace, racism, religion, money
basically I'm just trying to say that it would be better for everyone if intelligent beings like the ones mentioned in this video would actually help and make the world become a better place (just my opinion I guess)

Jacob Barnett is an American mathematician and child prodigy. At 8 years old, Jacob began sneaking into the back of college lectures at IUPUI. After being diagnosed with autism since the age of two and placed in his school's special ed. program, Jacob's teachers and doctors were astonished to learn he was able to teach calculus to college students.

At age nine, while playing with shapes, Jacob built a series of mathematical models that expanded Einstein's field of relativity. A professor at Princeton reviewed his work and confirmed that it was groundbreaking and could someday result in a Nobel Prize. At age 10, Jacob was formally accepted to the University as a full-time college student and went straight into a paid research position in the field of condensed matter physics. For his original work in this field, Jacob set a record, becoming the world's youngest astrophysics researcher. His paper was subsequently accepted for publication by Physical Review A, a scientific journal shared on sites such as NASA, the Smithsonian, and Harvard's webpage. Jacob's work aims to help improve the way light travels in technology.

Jacob is also CEO and founder of Wheel LLC, a business he started in his mom's garage, and is in the process of writing a book to help end "math phobia" in his generation.

Jacob's favorite pastime is playing basketball with the kids at his charity, Jacob's Place. It is a place where kids with autism are inspired every day to be their true authentic selves...just like Jacob.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
