Scientists examine role of imaginary worlds as indicators of highly creative children

In a nice affirmation, Scientific American recently posted that scientists have found imaginary worlds are early sign of highly creative kid.
"This detailed, sustained "world play" may be an early marker of broad, general creativity (as opposed to creative excellence in one field such as music), according to two professors from Michigan State"
Which in many ways a lot of us have known already for a long time, but it's fun to see some science behind that. Next up: Butter may stick on bread if applied firmly enough.

In other more interesting news, fairy tales may have even more ancient origins than many scholars had previously thought, according to The Telegraph.
