Mitch is one of the youngest students ever accepted to a university known for its programs for geniuses. He's partnered up with his roommate, science club legend Chris Knight, on a project to develop a high-powered laser. Together with their hyper-kinetic friends, they employ their intellects in the pursuit of bigger blasts, practical jokes, and a deeper understanding of what real genius is. When their final, functional laser is stolen by their teacher for a military weapon, they decide to get even. Written by

I'm not saying.
Well who's gonna clean it up?
You won't have to. It's gonna go from solid form directly to gas.
Whoa! Really? What is it?
I'm not sayin', but I can tell you it's fairly rare and very unstable.
Just like you.
