The mainstream media has been running tons of bits on “number-crunching” Chimpanzees today. Here’s one headline from WiredScience, “Chimpanzees are probably better than you at math.” Having previously studied primates’ mathematical abilities, I was shocked. It’s widely known that primates can’t do math because they don’t think the way we do. Eagerly I read the article only to learn that math wasn’t involved in this exercise. That pissed me off (I hate deceitful headlines), so I decided to blog about it.

Here’s the real skinny on this bit of misinformation. The chimps were TRAINED to use a touch-screen and memorization program. The program displays numbers in random positions, then the numbers disappear and the chimp touches the places the numbers appeared in numerical order (1, 2, 3, etc).

We know the chimps see numbers as symbols and understand that one symbol preceeds the next. But that’s the extend of their “genius”. There was no addition, subtraction, multiplication or division involved in this exersize. If chimps could add two numbers and understand what they were doing then that would be a true number crunching math chimp, but these aren’t. Again, the headline was, “Chimpanzees are probably better than you at math” …A complete lie.

Some chimps, which had practiced for quite some time, were pitted against college students who had no prior experience with this exercise. The students kept up with the chimps until the numbers were only appearing for less than half a second. I’m not impressed at all that chimps can be trained to react/memorize faster than humans who weren’t trained.

Instead of pitting college students against the chimps, why not use children and spend an equal amount of time training them? I’d put money on a 6-year old winning. …Children are faster learners than adults and have excellent memorization skills.

Obviously this story is another example of the media selling scientific lies by the click. Below is a clip from an average player in a Halo 3 match. Your reaction time here has to be in the 50-millisecond range to be competitive, and it’s ridiculously more complicated then the chimp game above. This is the kind of game humans (children and adults) play FOR FUN. Let’s see a chimp do this…



				

 

Remember the Woodpecker?

October 10, 2007

This massive ULF (ultra low frequency) assembly, a part of the Duga-3 array, is over a mile long. ULF (ultra low frequency) waves easily penetrate the earth, and lots of other dense matter. From 1976 – 1989 it sent out a powerful 10Hz wave that sounded a lot like a low frequency woodpecker. The way interrupted broadcasts, amateur radio, and utility transmissions resulting in THOUSANDS of complaints from various countries.

That was a long time ago. Wireless wasn’t so important back then. It is now.

If Russia ever turns this back on, or if someone else builds their own and does the same, we should expect two things…

  1. More bricked iPhones (many other wireless devices will also be bricked)
  2. We might go crazy

That’s the other horrible thing about microwaves. They can affect our brains. Current technology isn’t up for mind-control, but you don’t have to control someone’s mind to make them go insane.

Still don’t get it? Go to your TV. Turn it on and find some snow (aka white-noise). Now turn up the volume and try to concentrate. Then imagine that bliss 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Don’t you wish we had one? We have something sort-of similar, it’s called HAARP. It runs on UHF (ultra high frequencies), which do not penetrate the earth easily. However, HAARP transmissions could probably bounce around inside the ionosphere and cause problems that way.

Anwayz, I’m not saying our friendly Russian neighbors will ever turn The Woodpecker on again, but it is scary to think about. Especially since this has been used before and we know it does work. Let’s hope it’s torn down and the metal is turned into a bridge or something.

Why aren’t the feminists in America focused on ending the slaughter of young women in China and India? I’m not talking about abortion. I’m talking about the murder of babies; young girls, the handicapped or other unwanted children.

It’s sad but it’s nothing new. Back in 200BC the Greeks were doing this with a smile on their face. I bet you weren’t taught about this in Public School. You probably weren’t told about the ugly side of the Greeks because they are the beloved of academia. The Greeks were pigs in so many ways…but I digress. The current champions of death today are China and India.

Here’s a recent true story from India…

Lakshmi already had one daughter, so when she gave birth to a second girl, she killed her. For the three days of her second child’s short life, Lakshmi admits, she refused to nurse her. To silence the infant’s famished cries, the impoverished village woman squeezed the milky sap from an oleander shrub, mixed it with castor oil, and forced the poisonous potion down the newborn’s throat. The baby bled from the nose, then died soon afterward. Female neighbors buried her in a small hole near Lakshmi’s square thatched hut of sunbaked mud. They sympathized with Lakshmi, and in the same circumstances, some would probably have done what she did. For despite the risk of execution by hanging and about 16 months of a much-ballyhooed government scheme to assist families with daughters, in some hamlets of … Tamil Nadu, murdering girls is still sometimes believed to be a wiser course than raising them. “A daughter is always liabilities. How can I bring up a second?” Lakshmi, 28, answered firmly when asked by a visitor how she could have taken her own child’s life eight years ago. “Instead of her suffering the way I do, I thought it was better to get rid of her.”

Quote by John-Thor Dahlburg writing for the LA Times in his article, “Where killing baby girls ‘is no big sin'”

Things are worse in China where girls are considered “maggots in the rice.” Read on if you have the stomach…

…culture dictates that when a girl marries she leaves her family and becomes part of her husband’s family. For this reason Chinese peasants have for many centuries wanted a son to ensure there is someone to look after them in their old age — having a boy child is the best pension a Chinese peasant can get. Baby girls are even called “maggots in the rice”…Quote from “Gendercide and Genocide” by Adam Jones

 

I’m not disillusioned by this horrific tragedy. I know many wonderful people from China and India. That’s why I believe we can prevent this from happening. The people of the world need to be more vocal about our disapproval of these egregious acts.

If you care about this topic you might consider getting involved. It’s actually easier then you might think. There’s more than one website dedicated to stopping Gendercide, you could simply surf over to http://www.gendercide.org/ and signup for their mailing list.

It would only take seconds to become part of the solution instead of part of the problem, but I bet you won’t take the time. My experience has been that most people want to ignore problems like this. You’d probably rather pretend it doesn’t exist.
