Well, apparently somebody did.
If you are a parent of growing children, like me, one of the things that amaze you is when your children surprise you with something that they are able to do that is beyond their age level. Your kinder-aged child managed to read and pronounce a rather complicated word, your primary school aged child memorise the times table for the first time, your small boy threw that basketball into the hoop, or your high-school aged kid invented a device that can automatically iron your clothes while they were still in the washing machine so that they came out crisp and folded. Those moments made you happy and proud, especially if that last one really happened. As human beings, we cannot help but be amazed when people do, well, amazing things. We are blown away by the level of tennis that the players display at the grand slam. We are mesmerised by the sleight of hand of the illusionists. We adore, and even idolise, athletes, actors, scientists, writers, inventors, industry leaders, basically, anyone who have made significant accomplishments. That’s probably many of us like watching superheroes movies while imagining we have a nuclear reactor on our chest and laser beam launchers on our hands. In short, we are impressed by people’s abilities and achievements.
