Statistical filth

Herewith



Galton Board on display at the Galton Laboratory, University College London. "Instrument to illustrate the principle of the Law of Error or Dispersion, by Francis Galton FRS." Courtesy Stephen M. Stigler.


Is it just me, or does that look curiously like something a boy would scribble on a wall?

Confirming, I suppose, that Galton was never much of a boy, or he would have recognised the shape.

If you're pure, I suppose, it looks like a woman in a necklace.

On Your Tod

Age bin:

Reading the frontpage story on concerns that the excavators at Fromelles may be mixing digger body parts and watching the endless coverage of the recovery of bodies from Kokoda it seems a good time to remind Australians that we are neither Egyptians nor Americans. We do not believe we take our bodies into the afterlife. We do not worship at the shrines of our ancestors. Let the dead bury their dead, and let the living concern themselves with the welfare of the living.

Lascivious beasts

Selina Hastings in the Observer reviewing Mad World by Paula Byrne, an account of the family who inspired Brideshead Revisited, says that the author "might like to know that Waugh's jokey habit of substituting the words "lascivious beast" for "priest" in his letters to the Lygons derives from the following limerick:

There was a young lady of Devon
Who was had in a garden by seven
Itinerant priests,
The lascivious beasts,
And of such is the Kingdom of Heaven."

As I remember it, that went

There was a young lady of Devon
Who was had in a garden by seven
High Anglican priests,
Lascivious beasts -
Of such is the Kingdom of Heaven."


And I think Waugh did use it specifically of Anglicans. Still, it is something that the author should certainly have googled.

Yep, soon the US is to brought back under the wing of Britain, which was the plan all along by our old playmates the Jesuits and Vatican.

But of course, the Vatican and Pope have no power, do they? The Jesuits are just this buncha guys, y’know, who are misguided….

Get used to being subjects……

You’re absolutely right about a race war…if you surf around sites dealing with this issue, about 95% of Obamabots scream RACISM! Almost without fail.

Like a bunch of little brats…stick their fingers in their ears and scream it’s racism.

I know Obama is a fraud, But what happened to his alleged real name here ? Barry Soetoro … This looks suspicious to me. Is his real name Obama or Soetoro ? And who is Stanley Ann Obama ? This could be a plant to discredit the investigation & the case. But did it ever occur to anyone that this whole mess could have been set up with the ( Problem, reaction, solution ) Play in mind to get us to a point where we will accept a one world government ? Just a thought.

Do not pay these fuckers. Consummate your transactions by barter or through another monetary system. Do not pay the criminal federal government one fucking cent. This applies for either corrupt political party running the show.

Do not pay. And as Jim Lunsford has stated here, with others as well, do not pay these credit card companies. They are fucking thieves!

almost every bank or credit card loan prior to 2007 are invalid, the banks need to produce the agreement form and fulfill the conditions of these… ask them if they are the lender and request the application form, most dont have it

He is not President. HE is a usurper and he will be tried for treason and hopefully imprisoned or executed under military law by the military firing squad along with his gorilla wife.

Why do you think Obama is in a hurry to ship so many military troops out besides trying to keep us all defenseless he wants these troops out of the United States! Look how the military removed the President of that other country… he knows he could be next! He already lost the support of the local police nationwide when calling police stupid in the Gates problem! Do you honestly think haveing a beer meant jack shit to the public HELL NO!!! Join http://www.myspace.com/citizenarmy a coalition of proud Consititutional patriots that will serve defend and protect others like us while our troops are overseas, and for the ones that are dead from fighting for democracy while the current Obama administratiion tries to shred our Constitution back home… look people beside sending our military over seas this is also a larger plan of his by the ACORN people at work who go by several other names…. their GHOST groups which the US Government has already shoveled millions of our US Tax dollars to, these small grass roots groups of theirs are starting to infiltrate all smal towns in the USA for the bigger scheme! The ones he is shipping overseas you may already count as a vote for him in 2012 these troops are his saftey net it will be the first time in history that the military votes counted because they will be placed as votes by his corrupt people that he helped train to vote for Obama…. People this is getting scary and all I can say is we need to pull together as one unit and continue to watch and support Alex Jones cause he needs our financial support since he has so many cases he has to defend from all the acusations put out by him! Well I fell asleep while reading this and woke up so am off to sleep again im my underground bunker I built like Mark Levine that has room for only me lmao Thanks look me up on twitter I will add you~ http://www.twitter.com/citizensarmy

This is the kind of thing that happens from the faulty genetic soup that could only manifest from a good honest Irish white woman reproducing with an alcoholic abusive black-African Muslim silverback. Equality yes. But sameness…no.

Even God was not for race mixing and the diluting of the people’s of nations.
Just look at how the Jews do it and you will see they stay with their own and for good reason.

In the 3rd book “Conversations with Nostradamous” its said there will be terrible troubles with one president; and the USA will only be saved by big pleas to Patriotism. However, this is only one possible future – it could easily get ugly and a Civil War can occur if this is what Nostradamous is talking about.

I am teacher at MM Shah Primary school. And after seeing people on here claiming that the birth certificate here is not real. I tell you. I have the exact same certificate. I was born at the same time as our brother Obama. I assure you I even have the same registrar.
Kenyan is correct although his english to you might seem primitive he does not lie.
Flags or republics had little to do with what the clerk typed on the birth certificate.
Back in that time many had limited English skills even though we were a British Colony.
Things were sometimes lost in Translation, however not the fact when a baby is born in Mobassa at our hospital it is carefully looked after and records kept accordingly.
I assure you Obama’s family resides here and they and many other will tell you he was born here.
The seal and the type on the certificate shown matches mine perfectly.
I will post tomorrow to show all of you.
Be proud you have a good man in office and stop doubting where he was born.
He is a Kenyan first. Proud I am sure. :)

Fact: McCain born in a United States Military medical facility in Panama. Like an Embassy, this is considered “USA” sovereign territory. I may be wrong, but sounds pretty good…..

Opinion: It could very well be that the powers that run the country/world (CFR, Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg Group, and the international bankers) bankrolled Obama’s bid for the presidency. Could these people actually suppressed the truth about his birth place? Please, thjese are the same people that bankroll wars, work towards the complete de-industrialization of our nation, destroyed the Mexican economy years ago to cause he influx of hispanics (to destroy the American worker, unions, etc.,) all to destabilize the country. There is a highway being built from Mexico to Canada. Texans are having their land taken by eminent domain. Whose building the highway? THe Spanish!!!! So, maybe Obama ends up taking the fall…..major rioting, looting, etc.,. The CFR posse will play whites against blacks, dems against rebs……national guard and active duty military called in……thousands packed off to the FEMA camps……Biden becomes president….in no time the USA no longer exists, one currency, one government, one army, its over !!!!! What is the best that could happen? I’m Wrong!!! Fight the Future

Freedomwriter’s cynicism notwithstanding, the facts remain that if Obama loses face and office, than any/all complicit individuals, like Biden, Pelosi, and McCain, all of whom did NOTHING at all to properly VET this guy or see he was CONgressionally or independently investigated, as well as Billary, who got thrown the bone as S.O.S. for being the faithful lapdog she is, will all have been disqualified from any POTUS pro tem term, which leaves SARAH PALIN, ex-Gov. of Alaska (whose early retirement doesn’t seem so stupid now, now does it), as the #1 remaining VOTE-GETTER of the FINAL FOUR (Obama, Biden, McCain, & Palin) in the ‘08 presidential election!

There’s your new POTUS & new precedent-setting POTUS as 1st woman POTUS!

Can I get a HIP HIP HOORAY from all those bleeding feminists out there? lol

How ’bout a HOORAH from all the mealy-mouthed MSM minions who viciously attacked Palin?

No matter, when the dust settles and the pusillanimous politicians who FAILED to do their job, which is the RIGHT thing, by standing up to this TRAITOR & his Bilderberger buddies,
more than just BS/BO will be getting the HEAVE HO out of DC straight to JC (Jail, Criminals)!

How ’bout we the people reopen Guantanamo for BO & dah rest of dem der scum dat gots ta GO? Torture is NOT an option, although DEATH is legally the ultimate sentence for TREASON, which BO has been officially accused of by at least a half-dozen MILITARY now!

Contact your local county SHERIFF and make sure they are OATH KEEPERS like Sheriff Richard Mack & Joe Arpaio, both from AZ, who will deputize as many volunteers to become armed & ready POSSE/MILITIA as the local county sheriff is, believe it or not, our best last hope at salvaging our national sovereignty from impending MARTIAL LAW should the NWO NUTS & LUCIFERIAN LOONS behind all this “shadow govt.” stuff decide to throw a hissy fit!

Waterboard all of these unscrupulous schmucks until they Name Names of all the EVIL EMPIRE ELITE hiding “behind the curtain” of shadow govt. secrecy via the fraudulent 14th Amendment, fraudulent FEDERAL RESERVE, fraudulent 16th Amendment, fraudulent U.N., etc., and then bring them to justice to be tried by U.S., we the people!

Cue the Star Spangled Banner BO has admittedly had such a hard time with accepting as our national anthem as all of these obsequious oafs and onerous one world oligarchy are marched out in front of our now fully-returned-to-home U.S. Military in time for their fitting and final FAREWELL FIRING squad.

“Madam President, we await your 1st official EXECUTIVE ORDER now.”

Snare drums commence deafening drum roll…………

TV’s all over the U.S. & the world are tuned in as never before for such a spectacle…

Then, the silence is broken as CINC Palin EXECUTES her 1st EXECUTIVE ORDER, “FIRE!”

FIRE them all, indeed, traitorous lot, FIRE at will FIRE SQUADRON until ALL have expired!

Headlines the next day read, “Pro Tem Palin assumes office of POTUS.” “Obama FIRED!”
