I was in the gifted program as well. But so was my brother and several other people that didn't become conspiracy nuts.

No flashing images or anything like that.

Is there a point to this, or are you just polling?

I'm wondering as well. My curiosity is piqued.

Found this site but am unsure of the correlation to the OP.

Toward the close of the twentieth century, federal monies from the Jacob Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education Act funded such entities as the National Research Center on the Gifted and Talented and provided grant monies for gifted research and programming. A Nation at Risk (1983) and National Excellence: A Case For Developing America's Talent (1993), reports issued by the federal government, highlighted the missed opportunities to identify and serve gifted students nationally. In turn, a call was made for additional research and programming in the field of gifted education. The issuance of national standards by the National Association for Gifted Children also helped solidify the field's intent and provide school districts across the country with a set of programming criteria. Published in 2004, A Nation Deceived reported on the advantages of acceleration for gifted children, which illustrated America's inability to properly meet the needs of its most able students despite the overwhelming research supporting acceleration.
