On Billiard Balls and Keebler Elves

One of the "Scholars" is apparently upset that people are making fun of Judy Wood for her billiard ball theory. I think this is an unfair accusation, we gave that up a long time ago, we have been making fun of her Keebler Elf theory instead. Let's face it, it is much more entertaining, and who doesn't love those cute little cookie bearing munchkins?















Both inside and outside ST911, there have been outright gross attacks against Prof. Wood, but there's been subtle stuff, as well, which has really (and outrageously) undermined her credibility. For the longest time, we thought the problem was sexism. (That is, at some level the idea of a woman knowing more about engineering than men is being taken as an offense to the male chauvinist sensibility.) I do think sexism plays its part here, but other factors have been in the mix, as well: arrogant egos, jealousy -- and psy-ops, for sure.

In other words, a debilitating toxic stew.
Well I certainly can't speak about what happens inside of ST911, somehow I doubt they would let me into the inner sanctum at the moment, but I can say definitely there is no sexism going on here. We make fun of Morgan Reynolds, Jim Fetzer and Kevin Barrett way more than her, and the last I checked none of them was a woman. Well, OK, Fetzer and Barrett cry like little girls anytime someone says something mean about them on FoxNews, but that is not quite the same thing.

The complainer, Ginny Howard continues, with the most unintentionally hilarious line:

I don't think there's anybody else in ST911 who comes close to having her level of expertise for addressing the problem at hand.
The sad thing is I would have to agree with her. She is the most qualified member of ST911. That is the problem.

And of course in their typical paranoid fashion, anyone who criticizes a "scholar" must be on the CIA payroll.

One of the things that has driven me WILD is to have to sit back and watch her work being attacked by people who feign expertise but show no evidence of it.

Not to mention the intelligence operatives.
Damn those intelligence operatives. I told Pat to quit running covert operations throughout Southeast Asia, but he just won't listen.

She then praises Wood's teaching ability:

The second reason I believe in Prof. Wood's work is that she's a damned good teacher.
Hmm, well apparently some of her students don't seem to think so, she got an average score of 1.7, out of a possible 5. Evidently some of them were freaked out by her telling stories of being in a coma for 6 years.

Ginny then goes on to defend her physics:

What people don't realize (though I think the OCT ops do) is the depth of scientific understanding that's hidden from view. Far from having 'forgotten' conservation of momentum, Prof. Wood has complete mastery of the issues involving momentum as they apply to the analysis of the WTC "collapses". They're ACCOUNTED FOR in the way she's set up her thought experiment.
Yes, she ACCOUNTS for momentum, by DISMISSING it entirely, saying it isn't enough to have an affect. What is her proof that it wasn't enough? Well, she said so! Weren't you listening?!

So go ahead, spread the word of billiard balls and Keebler Elves far and wide. We have Internet access too. We will be right behind you to clean up.

Nice, we're OCT operatives, now? Can I get a badge and a cool codename now? Perhaps a walkie-talkie?

It's a shame that these people are so embarrassed by being trashed by keyboard jockeys that they have to pretend we're all government disinformation agents.

Pat, at the end of "Killtown Looks at Flight 93 Crash Photo". #26. I just was curious what your conclusions were.

A fragment of a building wich by itself weighs more than the USS Ronald Reagan (104,000 tons with full air wing, crew and stores)after accelerating to roughly ten metres per second won't have enough momentum to be worth considering?

That's retarded.

Oh, and I wouldn't be suprised to hear that Kevin Barret is sexist towards "Doctor" Wood.

Barret being a recent convert to islam and appearantly believing that the taliban didn't deserve to have thier asses kicked, I think it's safe to assume that he's one of those muslims who think that women should be beaten to death with rocks for speaking out of turn.

Yup, since the buildings had no momentum (or so little as to not consider), I could've held them up with one finger.

I loved the bit where the woman explains her personal expertise. She went to an elite high school! She got a degree in Classical Languages! If only the hijackers had spoken Latin, she'd actually have a useful skillset for the Truthers. Were any of them flautists? Because if so, she's got a minor in that.

And let's not forget that she came up with "a sophisticated mathematical model of the structure of modern base number", all on her own! She can probably convert the tail numbers of the aircraft into hexadecimal. One of her children was born in Mexico; unfortunately none of the hijackers had that background, but I'd bet that somebody from Mexico was in the two towers that day.

All in all, impressive credentials for a Scholar for 9-11 Denial.

If its true that he is a Muslim, now its starting to make a little more sense. He is simply an Osama/Al-Queda apologist deflecting blame away from his religion. If I had a nickel for everytime I've read that "..real Muslims would never do such a thing..." or "..those people couldnt have been Muslims", well - I'd have alot of nickels.

What boggles my puny little mind is this; there is an unmeasurable amount of hatred of the West from Muslims, and they always complain about "The Great Satan" and opression that the USA(and the West) causes them. Wouldnt they be more inclined to accept blame as a "I told ya so - your foreign policy is to blame, not the terrorists" rather than to say it wasnt any of their people? Why is it sooo hard to believe that a small percentage of Muslims(or any religion) could have fanatics willing to commit atrocities, especially with stations like Al Jazeera who are more than happy to be the terrorists mouthpieces? De Nial - its not a river in Egypt..

I knew Barrett wasnt all there when I read that he founded the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance. I mean, come on !! This dude lives in a fairy tale world. Does his brain short-circuit everytime a terror attack happens and an Islamic fringe group takes credit?

Heck, I want the bennies. Those CIA guys (or is it we CIA guys?) don't make the money they deserve, but they get a hella pension, great medical including optical and maybe even dental, they get to use accumulated unused sick time as time in service, etc. Also, they can tell any story they like at cocktail parties and no one knows whether to believe them. That's pretty sweet.

killtown, have you decided which specific member of the New York City Fire Department you'd like to libel next, since your first choice was murdered by terrorists before he could accomplish the task you assigned to him?

James, did you see Fetzers scorecard at that site?
Only 5 ratings cant give a good impression of what most of the students think, but one was really bad.
I hated the class and dropped it 6 weeks in. Fetzer talks over your head and expects insane amounts of memorization. If you're not math/science and phil brained, you probably won't understand what he's saying. A bit crazy, even for a conspiracy theorist.

Interestingly, two of the students thought he is very intelligent.(perhaps it was his use of pseudo-intellectual philosophy of science techno-babble)

I also found this last night:

So I have this class called Critical Thinking, which is a 100 Level course (Freshmen course, that I have to take for my major) and my teacher I think is insane.

He tells us 911 is made up, that JFK was assinated by the CIA mafi and then covered up by Lyndon B Johson, the CIA, FBI, and then later GERALD FORD (which I thought the only thing he could do was each nachos and drink beer with Homer Simpson...) that Senator Paul Wellstone plane was brought down by some futuristic secret weapon used by the government, and that the moon landing was fake.

His name is James Fetzer.....


Yep, Fetzer teaches critical thinking at Minn-Duluth. There is officially no hope for humanity..

Yeah that's the ticket. Ol' Judy ignores gravity and momentum and then her critics point out her idiocy because they're sexist?

Wood's gender ain't the issue - her screwed up logic is! Same for the rest of the "scholars."

Big surprise that they also lebel their critics "agents" of the government.

The usual CT nuttery.

What I love the most is how she expects us to believe that the WTCs are extremely similar to trees in structure....I want to laugh, but I am afraid I'll lose my breath.

Yep, Fetzer teaches critical thinking

Yup, academia is not a great place in this day and age.

Shawn,

The proper terminology to describe Fetzer is "wacademia."

An acquaintance just gave me "Loose Change," so I have only recently become acquainted with this particular brand of insanity. After reading Ginny Howard's article, I can only conclude that she is a desperately insecure woman who puffs herself up with phony credentials.

She has no teaching background, either as a degree or by way of experience, yet she claims that she found a base number model that "allowed for the teaching of sophisticated mathematical concepts to young children." Was she an aide at the Montessori school her children attended? No one in education would arrive at a "circuitous" route to do so. The "allowing for" bit tells me that she didn't do it herself. Later, she calls herself "non-technical," although higher mathematics, classical languages, music theory and performance, and managament science, her alleged areas of expertise, all call for highly developed techical abilities. Finally, she name drops, letting us know that she studied piano as a child (despite the minor in flute), by mentioning a piece by someone she refers to as "Shuman," although the only two composers by that name spell it "Schumann" and "Schuman," respectively.

What a fraud.
