On his first visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Connecticut school kid Benjamin Lerman Coady has allegedly become “the youngest person to point out an inaccuracy at the museum.” He noticed that a reprint of a 6th century map of the Byzantine Empire was missing Spain and parts of Africa, meanwhile, no one at the Met has. His mom didn’t believe him. His teacher is shocked, because — gasp!! – they didn’t even get to that part yet. Could it be, this kid was studying ahead on his own? Really?
Yes. The best part? This praise doesn’t even phase him. His real passion? “I want to move to Greenwich and open a modern exotic car shop.”
