EXPECTED

Israel steals advanced technology secrets from the US and European nations and the stolen technology is then reverse engineered and used by the Israelis to support their own exports with considerably reduced costs. Laughably, Israel has an average national IQ near 93 which is quite low and at the international Math and Science competitions, Israeli students rank low down the scale. LOL.

I am at the moment writing a lengthy indictment against our century. When my brain begins to reel from my literary labors, I make an occasional cheese dip.

Meanwhile, a British company is in the process of building the world's largest aircraft. The 302ft (92m) Airlander is part plane, airship and helicopter. It can stay in the air for up to three weeks unmanned and is capable of touching down on land or sea.

The world's best universities are exclusively located in the US, Western Europe and East Asia as data drawn over many decades consistently show. Not surprising.

I like our century. It's the best one I've lived in.

CALTECH has topped The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2013-2014. Not surprising. The professors at IIT would always tell us that it's a "treat" to study at MIT or at Caltech.

At Caltech, where admission is strictly performance-based, Asians make up approximately 40 percent of the student body. Three cheers for meritocratic admissions.

Deepak Chopra was totally outclassed by Richard Dawkins in a debate held in Mexico on 11/09/2013 as part of CDI. I was laughing throughout the debate to see Chopra's discomfiture and at the end of the exchange the look of defeat on Deepak Chopra's face was evident. Serves him right. LOL.

Richard Dawkins easily cornered another nutcase - the noted Indian philosopher, Satish Kumar. Kudos to Dr Dawkins.

They never do ... they just go on, and on, and on. At the end of your shift they're telling a story about their cat's dandruff and when you come back for the next shift they're still telling the same story.

It's like the part of the brain the determines what thoughts to articulate has failed in the open position. The exact opposite of autism.

I usually feel refreshed when I watch vids of wildlife specifically those shot in the great continent of Africa. I don't know why I find the rhythms of African animals nearer to nature than those beasts found elsewhere. Much damage has been done to the wilds of Africa that these days most of the wild tracts of Africa have been converted into money-minting safaris which every year draw tens of millions of tourists from all over the world. Sad, the wilds have been commercialized to such an extent that the natural breeding cycles of the animals and much of the natural habitats have been disturbed.

If you laugh at Israel 'coz has an average national IQ around 93, why then eulogize Iran that has an average national IQ of 84?

IRAN

Literacy rate in poverty-stricken Iran is around 85%, literacy rate in Israel approximately 98%.

Iran is poor and has been cruelly discriminated against by the West and in Iran the grip of religion and of brutal dictatorship have progressively squashed free thought and creativity.

The majority of the Iranian intellectual elite has fled Iran for other nations particularly in Europe and North America where they're flourishing and doing exceedingly well.

Most Iranians in Iran live in fear and have secretly turned atheists and are desperate to leave Iran for greener pastures. However, of what little of the good is still left in Iran is shown at the international Math/Science Olympiads where Iran always ranks very high which indicates the excellence of its students despite all the hardships at home. Many of these gold medalists from Iran make it to MIT and Stanford and do so well that certain Stanford University profs have commented that without a doubt one of the finest, if not the finest, university in the world preparing undergraduate Electrical engineers is Sharif University of Technology in Tehran.

Yes, I've met many Iranian students at IIT and found them brilliant and very well prepared whereas in my talks with educated Israelis most come across as crafty, ill-informed, racist, plagiarist, always willing to strike a deal and poor in the fundamentals of Math and science despite being helped by the West and in spite of there being no poverty or dictatorship in Israel and not surprisingly Israel fares poorly at international Math and science Olympiads and not a single Israeli university ranks in the world's top 200.
