    I recall as a freshman our analysis prof said something like: "Many people believe math is hard… that's because it is." I thought that was more honest than the usual attempt to lull people with this fake soft crap. Ironically that guys lectures were some of the easiest to follow and most helpful I've ever attended…

    Earth is a pizza not a football. Under no circumstances can surface water be convex in shape which is what the globe science fiction would have us believe. Utter rubbish. We've been duped. Just like 911. And there's a lot more like mainstream fraud religions. See Edward Hendrie, Christopher Bollyn, Antony Sutton, Eustace Mullins and Stanley Monteith. The biggest taboo because it's true.

    I'm 12 years old and, like most 12 year olds, I have high hopes for the future. I've been interested in Science since I was young and I've always wondered about the world around us. I strive to be a student at M.I.T or Caltech because I want to major in Mathematics and Chemistry. I dream of starting my own company one day. I would just like to say thank you for motivating me to do better in school and take up extra science lessons!
