Dylan on the Radio

I heard about this before, but only now just found the MP3, of Dylan Avery on the John Ziegler Show. It gets rather amusing. We learn, among other things that Dylan had to stay past his 4th year in high school because he flunked economics. He then claims he got an over 1300 SAT. Yeah, right.

It starts at the 18 minute mark.

In the new version it is down to less than $1 billion. I guess they got tired of people doing their own research....

Hey, I got over 1300. Of course I finished high school on time.

1280, but.... I've never made a documentary so chock full 'o facts that it collapses at free fall under the weight of its own truthiness.

Oh wait.... heh....

Neither did Dylan.

He flunked enonomics.

You mean that story about the gold isn't true???

Are these kids doing this all for the sake of comedy or they really this stupid?

Well, in Dylan's defense, I had to take economics twice... Although I am not sure if once as an undergrad, and once in grad school really counts in this context.

Up north, we do not have to take those SATs :)

I am assuming 1300 is considered "Good".

Regardless, it doesn't surprise me. I would be interested to see the academic record of their "Amazing Researcher" Bermas.

For the record: I left highschool before my Jr year, got my G.E.D.
Took my SAT's,1200 somethen, went on to college my senior year of highschool. I would never make such errors, as DO OVER ! SAT's were not all that, though. I hear the ACT was worse! What gets you into MENSA, 1500?

DT, depends on when you took it; there are a lot more higher scores today after the "renorming" of the late 1990s.

BTW, remember that Dylan was rejected twice by Purchase College's film school. Must be a pretty selective program if he couldn't get in with a 1300 SAT

I took it in 83! I never heard of filmschools denying entrance. Most just want money!

Uh huh. And the gap in the Watergate tapes is 18 minutes long. Go ahead, tell me that's a complete coincidence.

Dylan is in on the plot.

shame most places have to go through 4 years of highschool...where I live, only G10 to G12 (or levels I, II, and III as they are called).

I hate saying this, but (and I'm not familiar with the host of the show) even I felt uncomfortable for Avery and Bermas.

He obviously appears to be a conservative, and as a fellow conservative, he kinda' put me off.

I will say though that it's nice to see that there are people out there who have even less patience for these ridiculous ideas than I do.

It just seemed like a hit piece on the part of the host however. Deserved, maybe. But a hit piece nonetheless.

Dylan is not conservative. He stated on the Little Green Footballs blog, way before he became a wannabe-big-shot, that Chomsky is his hero.

Purchase College? No SC, or NYU?
Hmmm!

I remember reading he was the resident troll before Loose Change hit it big.

I was referring to the radio host, not Dylan. I know Avery's not conservative.

Purchase is part of the State University system so maybe theres a lot of competition because its a good price.

There must be thousands of people graduated from film schools and ow many whose work will be seen by tens of millions of people worldwide, as Dylan Avery's work has been seen? If he'd gotten into Purchase its unlikely he'd have ever made Loose Change because they'd have had him doing required courses work for the first 2 years.

That makes no sense, we had a film major at my college (most of my friends were film majors) and they made their own films all the time.

R u seriously talking about his academics? Have you seen the dvd? Who cares about his SAT. Even if you don't believe his ideas, he raises some very interesting points.
Oh, wait I forgot our goverment never lies!
