Bet you didn't build a working windmill when you were 14

kid in Malawi builds windmill
While your average 14-year old is making crappy YouTube covers or Twittering their life away, this kid in Malawi built a working windmill that is providing electricity for his village.  What makes this story even more incredible is that he got kicked out of school for not being able to afford tuition and constructed the windmill out of scrap and garbage after reading an American book called Using Energy.  Hopefully CalTech or MIT picks up this story and offers this kid a scholarship.
