“I would rather die a meaningful death than to live a meaningless life.”~ Corazon Aquino
Brandenn E. Bremmer.
A child prodigy. Musical master.
Someone who was reading books by the time he was 2 years old. Entered college at age 11.
His IQ was measured at 178. Higher than Stephen Hawkins, Paul Allen, and Sharon Stone. (Stone’s IQ measuring in at 154.)
Sadly, I could not find a lot of information on him as I researched. But he had a very odd death when he suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head at the age of only 14, on the 15 of March 2005.
No suicide note, no societal pressures, no known illness or suffering from disease. All that intelligence and promise and it ended in fourteen years. As far as I can gather, the death of Bremmer remains a mystery. It was however investigated as a suicide as there were no signs of foul play.
I’d love to expand on this blog post. If you have more information on Bremmer, please let me know.
For the record: The highest recorded IQ ALLEGEDLY belongs to William James Sidis. (1898-1944) Sidis died of a brain hemorrhage in Boston, Massachusetts.
