Kids do the darndest things.

Take Ray William Johnson, who in 1990 was apparently too advanced for normal three-year-old activities.

Yep, instead of, you know, playing with toys or neighborhood kids, he went straight for a JCB Digger. Even more fascinating is the fact that he managed to operate the machine as if he'd been doing it for, well, a lot longer than three years.

The amazing feat was all caught on video, which has finally made it to YouTube nearly 21 years later. Check it out after the jump (though, parents, you may want to shield it from your kids, as not to give them any ideas).
