"Started By Buying A Few Advertising Rulers Here And There"

"I started by buying a few advertising rulers here and there; yard sales, eBay, and the occasional antiques store when they weren’t charging $20/stick. I figured that I would use them as wainscoting in a small room once I found my forever home. People would give them to me as gifts around the holidays. Two homes later, there was some very boring pine paneling and needed something. I still have about 100 yardsticks left. Maybe for a vacation house some day"

Genevieve,

sounds like jealousy to me.

also if you look closer on the pics, there is nothing that indicates them being "rich spoiled brats"

Genevieve,

Telescope is $500. Easily found that price trough the magic of Google. Not exactly impossible. I saved for expensive things like consoles completely on my own at his age.

And, seriously? You think ham radio costs thousands? Most that do that are not exactly rich...
But lets use the almighty magical Google boat again!
*waves magic keyboard*
Ah! Costs are typically $1000, but you can easily start at $200.
And that's not even considering the fact that she's obviously out of her teens and probably bought it from money she earned herself. Though even a 14 year old can have a job...

But you are right in a way I suppose. It is more expensive than a hobby of jealousy trying to kick people down in comment sections that actually do something interesting with their life.
That hobby is true bliss.

Genevieve,

and yes...you are probably correct, those are "whims"...it's not like it says he has spent time building it from scratch...

probably a whim for the girl ending up on a Ham radio licensing manual too...just something she wanted to try for the weekend and never again do...

so yeh...i'll stick to it sounding like jealousy on your part, not even cleaverly disguised.

i have to agree with Ellswood
the telescope inst something you just go down to the telescope store and buy parts for and throw it together.

you have to be able to understand the science behind one and how to amplify light

"Most telescopes, and all large telescopes, work by using curved mirrors to gather and focus light from the night sky. ... The bigger the mirrors or lenses, the more light the telescope can gather. Light is then concentrated by the shape of the optics. That light is what we see when we look into the telescope."

the kid was able to build a telescope better than the one at a local observatory

"jealousy" is right, what your biggest accomplishment? getting your shoes on the correct foot?
