On TMP we could quite adequately prove that cats were dogs merely through logic. Weaselly would be amazed.

They could make a start on that with better teaching of statistics.

It is quite possible, indeed common, for more than half of a population to be above or below average if you're talking about the arithmetic mean (which is what most people think about as "average"). The median (50th centile) is something different, by definition half the population is above and half below.

For example it's said more than 99% of the population in Norfolk have more than the average number of fingers on their hands. It's true, but not how you may think. The numbers of people with missing fingers make the average 4.99 whatever. Everyone with 5 fingers on their right hand is above average.

Another example is wages, 50% of UK full time workers earn around £30,000 or below, 50% above (the median). But the mean wage (average) is up near £37,000. It's quite a bit higher than the median because relatively small numbers of really high earners skew the distribution.


The average dog has less than 4 legs.

Mind you, I can remember (many, many years ago) walking around a GCSE Modular exam and noticed some of the kids were sitting a paper they hadn't studied - it had been given to them by mistake... non of them had noticed and they were quite happily doing the paper...Fair enough, they were a lower set but it is still very discouraging...

It's not surprising the country is in the state is is.
If Canada is halfway as bad, Mr M is probably deputy Head at least.

Not in Canada at any rate.

Of course he could be Walting about being an 'educator'. More likely he's an adult rehab pupil.


Nope. I saw his degree and graduation announcement. But it seems very likely he’s a substitute teacher, at best.


Yep, I have seen them as well; he is a qualified teacher.

TNP really is the gift that keeps on giving. Uparmored is clearly a pissy teenager:

"LotR sucks. My Mum liked it but i threw it in the trash when she gave me a copy. Stupid hippy 'Bleeped text' I stuck to 'Nam comics, GI Joe and manga. Glad I did.

Stupid hippy mum. I hate hippies and I hate my mum. 'Bleeped text' that bitch."

America's next school shooter?


A few pages ago, Mr Blanchette suggested that Uparmored might actually be someone's clever troll, a thought that had also crossed my mind. I increasingly suspect someone is having a bit of fun there and taking the piss by stretching RWNJ stereotypes to extremes of absurdity. No one can be as terminally moronic as Uparmored, even by TMP's generous standards.


I was just about to say it again, actually. “‘Nam Comics”? Really? :D


Uparmored goes off on another rant:

"oooh iphone cool man Col Dunford.

Yeah '03 was bad ass. Basically Rummy said "oh yeah 'Raqis were gonna take down your whole shitty country with 30,000 American warriors (15% troop numbers of desert storm)."

Then, he did it.

Known, unknowns, unknown unknowns and goin to war with the Army you have.

'Bleeped text'in kicked ass, took names and tore Saddam and his buddies a new one.

Bad 'Bleeped text'in ass. :cool:"

Ignoring the minor fact that he Is undercounting the US forces involved in the invasion by a mere 100000 and ignoring 45000 Brits, 2000 Diggers and 194 Poles, he is either a complete arsehole, is suffering a mental health crisis, is indulging in too many mind altering substances, or just could be a very clumsy sock puppet.
