Many people have climbed mountains. Or played Bach on piano. Or earned a black belt in Taekwondo, edited 200 Wikipedia articles, become an Eagle Scout, studied five years of Latin, scored a near perfect SAT in one try or been admitted to an honors math program at a top-tier college. Few have done them all. Eric Metcalf did each before he turned 20. It was all the time he had. (Raleigh News & Observer)
