THIS TIME

and make of it what you will. 

And yes, extrapolation is allowed (encouraged, actually).

Before most of the audience had arrived, I was checking the focus on the slides in my PowerPoint presentation prior to giving my talk and I put up on the screen an image which shows the Orion/Pyramids correlation and the Sphinx/Leo correlation at Giza in the epoch of 10,500 BC. Rightly and properly since the Orion correlation is Robert Bauval’s discovery I included a portrait of Robert Bauval in the slide. As soon as Zahi saw Robert’s image he became furiously angry, shouted at me, made insulting and demeaning comments about Robert, and told me that if I dared to mention a single word about Robert in my talk he would walk out and refuse to debate me.

This is a modern ‘scientist’ in frank and open debate? (No, I’m not referring to the gentle Mr Hancock —I mean the nice Mr Hawass.)

I explained that the alternative view of history that I was on stage to represent could not exclude the Orion correlation and therefore could not exclude Robert Bauval. At that, again shouting, Zahi marched out of the debating room. Frantic negotiations then took place off stage between the conference organisers and Zahi. Finally Zahi agreed to return and give his talk and answer questions from the audience, but he refused absolutely to hear or see my talk, or to engage in any debate with me. I therefore gave my talk to the audience without Zahi present (he sat in a room outside the conference hall while I spoke). When I had finished I answered questions from the audience. Then Zahi entered, gave his talk, answered questions from the audience and left.

well now ....png

One of the few members of the audience who had arrived early did manage to record part of the scene of Zahi storming out of the conference room — see here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Ziu2ygE_Wc

The whole illustrates the arrogant pignorance of the gentleman who had/has (?) his grip tightly around the neck of power at the actual site itself. Not good—but he would doubtlessly disagree; and I imagine that if I tried to debate the point would flounce petulantly out of the room with petticoats aflurry and spitting spiders in all directions.

IT’S A ‘cultural’ thing?

So I (why always me?) must bend over backwards to accommodate such open-minded, well mannered, couth and cultured, scientifically inquisitive little oiks as  this nice man? (Unless I do I shan’t earn my Snowflake badge) (Bugger~!)

No, my apologies to any deserving sensitivities I may ruffle—this guy is often both desperate to be liked and desperate to appear unbiassed. But the mask drops easily to reveal the thug within (desperate thug, I must add). (Is he Islamic, by any chance—and thus entirely open to unchallenged debate?)

IF THE NICE MR HAWASS

represents the ‘scientific’ establishment of Egyptian studies and antiquities I think our world is a sorry place.

Perhaps he learned his objectivity—if not his manners—at the Adolf Hitler School of Fine Arts in Berlin (and is older than he claims).

But he has style—those ‘Indiana Jones’ hats  … ’nuff sed.

For ol’ Zahi, the very antithesis of The Snowflake

* Yes, Little Ollivia … that was indeed sarcasm. Pure, unsubtle, unadulterated, and the quintessentially genuine article.

ENGLISH, NOT

buitre16ALLOWED NO MORE

Free speach is nuspeke, no? butcha can get awa with anythink theze daze—

Unitec said it was “unfortunate that the former staff member has opted to acquire the private records of students and hold these after their employment ended”.

“This is a serious breach of the students’ right to privacy.”

Plurals and single lures micksed up freely, unleavened by considerations of gender; and no won bothas? Beem me up, Skottie…

Sauce of yore kwoat:   LICKK HERE

I really like respect and admire the loyalty and consideration shown by the Unitec spokes-perper* in the final quote line above—it shows that someone has his/her/its/their priorities right: defend your own stipend first above and beyond all else.

snowflake

* “perper” being that ‘son’ denotes a male, ergo ‘person’ is a sexist term … but ‘perper’ is genderically neutral. A point I’d debate with all comers (given only that I be allowed naughty words)(if there are any these days?).

PS  Oops … but he’she/it/they was/were referring to the erstwhile students as being actually employed by the Unitec? Agents provocateurs, perhaps, to flush out the last vestiges of integrity?

It worked … she’s gone. Damned dinosaur …

 

WHY SHOULD WE WORRY?

This is, after all, the age of total ‘Liberation’* and ‘Equality’ … no?

KEY POINTS

•Six Saudi students have been allowed to pass an electrical course despite cheating in their final exam. •They submitted almost identical answers in the exam, but could not answer a question verbally after the cheating was discovered. •Two Saudi government officials attended a key meeting when Unitec began investigating the case. •Unitec says the Saudi students were not treated any differently from other students who cheat. •It says “academic misconduct” including cheating was detected in 10 per cent of last year’s engineering exams. •The Saudi students’ lecturer has resigned in protest and NZQA is investigating.

Six Saudi Arabian students at Unitec have been allowed to pass an electrical course despite cheating in their final exam.

BUT WAIT

it gets better—

He also gave all seven students C-minus grades for the course, the lowest passing grade. Unitec said later that this was an error and changed one student to a fail grade…

 

Oh wow. And awwww, shucks too.

It may be relative/pertinent/germane or wotever, I haven’t read it myself ‘cos all this academic stuff doesn’t concern me so long as we kiwis stay the world leaders in everything—never forgetting that if ever we lose at rugby it’s only because the ref is biassed, paid off, or blind. We invented flying, we invented splitting atoms, we were/are/will always be the best sailors in the universe—so of course our educators are infallible and the guy/guyette who wrote this BS article should be stood against the wall and pelted with bales of Saudi shekels until they recants**.

WE GOTCHA

NOW

try this wee hypothetical scenario—080721_dodo

  • Education is Free! (At government expense)(which means at your expense, you pay taxes)
  • Education is compulsory! (Your kid goes to school, or else!)
  • Schools, to protect the innocent, for vaccinated kids. (No arguing, you damned anti-social misfit: get your rotten kids vaccinated or they can’t attend compulsory school. Got it?)

—and now that you’ve done the sums, here’s another thought—

” …When it comes to the science, Robert F. Kennedy is currently focusing on one (out of many) concerns regarding current vaccination, which is mercury, one of the most dangerous toxins known to man — 100 times more poisonous than lead . He recently held a press conference at the National Press Club bringing this point up, offering a $100,000 reward for any scientist, journalist, or doctor to present a study showing that it is safe to inject mercury into babies…”

—namely, why aren’t they queuing up to collect that free ‘no brainer’ reward; kicking, gouging, biting, struggling ferociously to get to the front of the line before all the lovely freebie hundred-thousand dollarses run out?buitre16

Oh! Yes. I see …

  • not everyone is motivated by money …
  • some of us actually want only what is best for our fellow man, woman, or child; out of the goodness of our compassionate altruistic loving little hearts …
  • even if it means (sob~!) invoking the armed might of the State to force any antisocial bastards to comply …
  • pro bono publico
  • one for all
  • and all for none
  • Thus Freedom (yay! Rah rah rah!) eternally reigns supreme

“Mr Argus, Sir?”

“Yes, Little Ollivia?”

“Sir … isn’t there a flaw in your drift?”

“Do tell, Child—I’m all ears.”

“Surely if an unvaccinated child goes to school he’s at risk from the bugs carried by … …  … oh.”

“More, please—you still don’t look convinced?”

“But if he’s suffering and takes the germs to school, he’s a threat to the bulletproo— … … … oh …”

and all I do this time is give you a few quotes to read—

Number one is his assumption that the trend of higher college costs is going to continue to a totally unaffordable level. In fact, the cost/benefit ratio of going to college is already so out of whack that the whole system has to change radically. A college degree, even now, is of only marginal value; most everybody has one. And things that everybody has are devalued. You’re quite correct that colleges and universities today are dead ducks as businesses. Unless you’re going to learn a trade, like doctoring or lawyering, or you’re going for science, engineering, or math, where you need the formal discipline and where you need lab courses, it’s a total misallocation, even a waste of money to go to college today.

So I applaud the fact that all these colleges and universities are dead men walking, that they’re all going to go bankrupt. They are totally overrun and infested with cultural Marxists and progressives, militant leftists that are propagandizing kids with absolutely the wrong kind of values. It’s astonishing that parents are willing to pay even today’s prices to subject their kids to four years of indoctrination. So I’m glad that they’re all going bankrupt.

Justin: But don’t you need a college education to get ahead in life?

Doug: It’s not necessary to go to college. You’re likely to be corrupted, and indebt yourself like an indentured servant for many years to come. The question is: Do you want an education, or do you just want a piece of paper that says you logged the time in a classroom?

—and then you can go to source (CLICK HERE) after which you can ponder a few thoughts.

For myself I had to recheck the meaning of the word ‘singularity’. I found one of the offerings to be “etc etc etc infinitely dense etc etc etc”. So it was appropriate—but I leave it to you to figure how.

He also offers an alternative to ‘college’. I’m off soon to check it. I may even get hooked. Can an old dog learn new tricks? The esoteric world has long had a saying to the effect that “when the pupil is ready, the Master appears”. We’ll see … and some schools of Buddhism say “If you meet the Buddha on the road—kill him!” … which might point us in the direction of burning down (or at least purging) some of the ‘universities’.

Have I now offended thee,

UPDATE

to keep you in the picture wrt topic:baaabs

UPDATING

is essential. Times change, and those who don’t change with the times risk being relegated to the Great Garbage Bin of history.

I KEEP HAPPENING

across snippets here and there telling me how ineffectual I am. Face it, I am indeed a

080721_dodo.png

—and proud of it.

So before I get carried away waxing lyrical about the obsolete joys of obsolescence, feast your eyes (a dodo cliché) (did you spot it?) on this—

    IF

If you can keep your head when all about you

Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,

But make allowance for their doubting too;

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,

Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,

Or, being hated, don’t give way to hating,

And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;

If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;

If you can meet with triumph and disaster

And treat those two imposters just the same; 

If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken

Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,

Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,

And stoop and build ’em up with wornout tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings

And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss

And lose, and start again at your beginnings

And never breathe a word about your loss;

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew

To serve your turn long after they are gone,

And so hold on when there is nothing in you

Except the will which says to them: “Hold on”;

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,

Or walk with kings—nor lose the common touch;

If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;

If all men count with you, but none too much;

If you can fill the unforgiving minute

With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run—

Yours is the earth and everything that’s in it,

And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

                                                       — Rudyard Kipling

—and put it into good modern good standard good English. You know what I mean, something that will pass unhindered through the modern education system and emerge unchanged. You’ll have to work at it, and sadly it’s going to always be a ‘work in progress’. (But you might even attract some highly placed official eyes and find yourself heading a modern university, no?)

To help you get started here’s the final line of the above in before-and-after formats:

the Old (disgusting!)

And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

the desired target New (yay! Progress!)

And—which is more—you’ll be a person, my child!

Not easy for a purist but we can’t let the blasted dodos stand in the way, can we?

See?

Easy peasey — now go get ’em Tiger!
