*When I was a teenager taking care of my grand-father by myself, he set on fire the couch on which he was sitting.
*I was in kindergarten, first grade, and second grade, all in the same calendar year. Nine years later, I became a high school drop out. After high school, I attended school for seventeen years. In the process, I earned six academic degrees including two doctorates.
