    My (real as tested by professionals, not some fly by night internet thing) IQ is in the high 140s to mid 150s (multiple tests over a few years), I am more than capable of making these types of decisions at an earlier stage in my life than most people are.

    Alright Sheldon...IMO there's no way you were mature enough to decide for yourself at 12. 25 maybe.
