Stop being lazy, and I thought you give reliable evidence too! I only forfeited because you did, and you only presented your own opinion on why kids are incompetent, probably from your personal experience, though not for most people!

Forfeited
Round 5

You never proved kids are smart, if they are they're smart for a simple minded person.
