Good News Baby Boomers

There is still time to become a genius. From The New Yorker, "[L]ate bloomers bloom late because they simply aren’t much good until late in their careers."

Perhaps late bloomers are instead entering a state of self-actualization, which Abraham Maslow defined as "the full use and exploitation of talents, capacities, potentialities, etc." Or as Sister Donna said to her sixth grade class at Holy Innocents Grade School, "Bloom where you are planted."
