Meet Sophie Wong, the most badass 3-year-old karate kid ever.

Watch as she recites the student creed in the cutest possible way during the Tiny Champions class atPremier Martial Arts Leeds in the U.K.

She may not know all the words, but she’s determined to do what it takes to one day become a black belt.

Her mom told the Yorkshire Evening Post that she was inspired by her older brother who practices a lot at home.

As soon as she could start speaking, she says, she started asking her mom if she could take classes.

Nine-year-old James Barney Jr. of Florida was taking a dip in a lake when a 400 pound alligator tried to make a meal of him. Miraculously, the boy fended him off with a few quick hits and Barney only has bite marks to show from it. In a few years if you meet someone by the same name, be very careful during your game of "Two Truths and a Lie," is all we're saying.

Stella Ehrhart is 8 and in the second grade. But on any given day, she also may be Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, Princess Grace on her wedding day, or Billie Holliday.

Stella decided to dress as notable women every day because they represent who she hopes to be.

Surprisngly, her biggest challenge is remembering who's next. Pointing to a picture of Sandra Day O'Connor, she has to ask:

Modern Family's boneheaded-but-insightful son Luke (Nolan Gould) visited Ellen this week to announce his graduation from high school. But wait -- isn't he only 13?

Turns out, he's a bona fide genius, with a Mensa membership and an IQ of 150:

Over the summer I did a lot of studying and I took an exam and tested at high school, so I'm hopefully going to go on and do some online community college courses.

When Gould visited Ellen in January, he revealed that he likes to discuss nuclear fusion in household microwaves, and that his allowance is a paltry $30 a week, with the rest of his income being squirreled away for college.

We'll never watch Luke and Phil's hijinks the same way again.

OMG -- The Shire General Store is the most charming creation by a little kid since Caine's Arcade.

Here's the intro to the Etsy listing:

"I am Paul Blazek, age 10, and I like to make things out of polymer clay with my brothers. I have 5 brothers but really only Caleb, age 8, helps so far. I like Lord of the Rings and my Dad reads it aloud to us almost every night."

Joshua Smith was determined to help Detroit ease its desperate financial burden. So he did what any industrious 9-year-old would do -- he launched a successful lemonade stand.

Joshua's new business, which he ran with his pals for five days last week, garnered more than $3,340 in donations, with "sales" pouring in from as far as Canada, South Africa, Uganda, and the U.K.

By Friday, he had received an award for outstanding achievement from the Detroit City Council, sold lemonade to members of the University of Michigan's men's basketball team, and been awarded a $2,000 college scholarship from the Rosa L. Parks Scholarship Foundation.

"I'm really happy that a lot of people supported me," Joshua said. "It was successful but tiring."

Detroit will use the proceeds from Joshua's stand to maintain a park and playground near his house.
