It was a matching day at the Rock, as both Vicky and I were rocking Nirvana shirts…we weren’t the only ones, as displayed in my Vine video today…
Justin Beckerman is a 17 year old High School student from New Jersey, and he is making news because he just built a one-man submarine! The Submarine can dive to 30 feet and travels at one and a half miles per hour. It took him just six months and $2,000 to put together. Justin has invented other things in his life, when he was 12, he developed a remote-controlled car that could mop and vacuum. He has also built airplanes, boats, robots, and more.
Justin isn’t the only teen that has accomplished something impressive…last month, 18-year-old Eesha Khare of San Jose, California won $50,000 at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. Her invention is a super-capacitor . . . which is a battery that can charge a cell phone in 20 to 30 seconds, and lasts 10 times longer than current batteries.
Not all accomplishments are impressive for good reasons…
There's a video online of a 17-year-old outside Los Angeles trying to jump over a car that's speeding toward him at 40 miles an hour. He jumps too late, his legs get nailed, and he flips through the air, yet somehow manages to land on his FEET and he walks away with only a bruised ankle! Check it out…
Sometimes there is only a fine line between talent and stupidity!
Based on these teenagers accomplishments… Good or Bad, when you were younger... what was your biggest accomplishment? Here are some of the texts we received…

Hey guys I just wanted to let you know that I beat cancer while in high school. I was diagnosed my junior year and still graduated on time with a 3.5 GPA average. And I was even hooked up to chemo medication while I walked for my graduation. Signed: Captain Leukemia
