Is everyone ready to feel pretty inferior? Wasik Farhan-Roopkotha, a six-year-old boy from Bangladesh, may soon find himself in the Guinness World Records as the world's youngest computer expert. He was using a computer at seven months old, familiar with Microsoft Word at age three and creating video game emulators by age four. He's also skilled at games like Call of Duty and Metal Gear Solid. Oh yeah, and he's currently learning English to increase his chances of landing a job with a computer firm.

The Guinness World Records doesn't currently have a record for youngest computer expert, but Wasik's family along with Microsoft are pushing Guinness to create the title just for the child prodigy. Considering some of the truly silly feats they already document, I think Wasik's accomplishments are definitely worthy of a place in their records. Get him in there now, before all of that Call of Duty playing corrupts him and leads him to using his powers for evil.
