It's that time of the week, and for your viewing pleasure we've profiled some serious geniuses. Today's list is on teenage entrepreneurs, and these kids are so amazingly smart that it gave me a little bit of an inferiority complex. Seriously. It's one thing to hear about the engineers and founders behind successful companies, it's another thing entirely to hear about teenagers who have achieved similar accolades and done even more than that. Who knows, one of these guys may become an even bigger deal than Mark Zuckerberg.

We interviewed Laura Deming a Thiel Fellow working to prevent aging, Taylor Wilson the youngest person in the world to achieve nuclear fusion, Web application guru and Founder of Gumroad Sahil Lavingia, Israeli soldier by day and serial entrepreneur by night Ben Lang, and 15-year-old student, designer, and entrepreneur Brandon Wang.
