Graduating college, getting a job and supporting yourself is usually the mark of adulthood done right… until you hear the story of Sabrina Gonzalez Pasterski. This Cubana is killing the physics world with her incredible drive and brain power. Don’t show your parents this story unless you are ready to feel inadequate.

This is Sabrina Gonzalez Pasterski. At 22, she is definitely making her parents proud.

She’s a physics phenom who is researching black holes, gravity and spacetime. Harvard University believes she could be the next Albert Einstein.

No pressure!

At the age of 12, Gonzalez Pasterski became interested in physics and engineering, so she began tinkering with machines.

Eventually, she built a single engine plane on her own. She was only 14.

Here’s what it looked like:


Once the plane was built, Gonzalez Pasterski went to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to get an OK on the airworthiness of her homemade aircraft. She blew everyone away.

Peggy Udden, an executive secretary at MIT told Yahoo News“I couldn’t believe it. Not only because she was so young, but a girl.”

When Gonzalez Pasterski applied to MIT, she was actually put on a waitlist. Then a few professors watched a video of Gonzalez Pasterski building a plane and realized how much potential she had.


Professor Allen Haggerty told Ozy: “Our mouths were hanging open after we looked at it.”

Gonzalez Pasterski was soon accepted to MIT and in 2013, she graduated with a 5.0 GPA.

Not a 4.0… a FIVE POINT OH. That’s the highest GPA you can get.  You go, girl.  Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon and aerospace company Blue Origin, said she can have a job at his company whenever she wants.

Gonzalez Pasterski — who has never had a boyfriend, an alcoholic drink or a cigarette — is currently a PhD candidate at Harvard University.

Gonzalez Pasterski told Ozy, “I’d rather stay alert, and hopefully I’m known for what I do and not what I don’t do.”  She was granted academic freedom by Harvard, which means Gonzalez Pasterski is allowed to do whatever she wants when it comes to her work. She can do so without the fear of retaliation, censorship, or inquiry from faculty and staff.

And if that’s not enough, check out her website full of ALL of her achievements and work.

Leaked Video Shows Young Ted Cruz was the Perfect Movie Villain


Leaked Video Shows Young Ted Cruz was the Perfect Movie Villain

Over the weekend, someone leaked a video of an 18-year-old Ted Cruz talking about his future dreams and it’s clear he was considering much loftier goals than the presidency. Cruz ends up sounding like he’s auditioning to become a movie villain (or someone who watched one too many episodes of Pinky & The Brain).

Here’s the video that is making the rounds.

To sum it up, Cruz wants to power, money, and, of course, world domination.

It all starts with an incredibly corny joke about what aspiration means.

Funny, Ted…real funny.

But then he got serious and admitted what his future goals really are.

Of course that’s only after becoming rich, powerful, and starring in a “teen tit” film like Malibu Bikini Shop.

Sounds like he could have become a really good movie villain…
