BBC Silliness


Recently I attempted to watch two BBC documentaries, one on the history of mathematics and the other about Captain Cook.  I finished neither.  It was due to a combination of not delivering real relevant interesting information along with the annoying PC driven agenda.

Let us start with Captain Cook.  The documentary’s female hostess starts off by telling us that Captain Cook was not as bad of a guy as most of you in the audience imagine.  The unmentioned, but implied subtext, is that old time British explorers/colonialist were automatically evil because reasons.

The documentary drags on examining his wife’s life while he was off exploring the world.  Of course her life was difficult, just as most everybody’s life in that era was.  Anyway, it droned on and on being reminiscent of Hillary’s “Women suffer the most in war”.  Note that Captain Cook was killed by island natives during one of his missions.

The mathematics history documentary labored especially hard to highlight non-white-men mathematicians.  As an aside, note this book,

These non-white-men mathematicians mentioned in the documentary  made no contribution to the science of math, for if they had, they would be known for doing so (and included in the above book).  The math stuff developed by the non-white-men highlighted by the documentary appeared to be irrelevant, even if the results were know to the world at the time.  The white men mathematicians that the documentary was mostly ignoring were the ones actually making dramatic advancements in the field,

Products like these make documentary makers look rather silly.  There is relevant information to telling a story, and there is irrelevant information.  Apparently it is difficult to discern which is which.

    My knowledge of history is a little rusty, but if I remember correctly, Cook died during his final voyage. Perhaps someone can confirm 😉

    The bizarre semantics by which Antolak/“Jones” claims that the penis is not “male genitals” is a perfect example of the lunatic ideology of the transgender cult. As I noted in the case of Eyrne Daymont a/k/a “Aryn Maitland,” crazy is a pre-existing condition. When confronted by the rhetoric of transgender activists, we must recognize that we are dealing with seriously disturbed people. Their efforts to distort language, to change the meanings of words, and to force the rest of to accept their revised definitions, represent a dishonest attempt to obtain validation by compelling others to ratify their delusions.

    That will come by ‘challenging belief systems and social constructs that contribute to violence and offering alternative options,’ the listing says.

    For Zoë Barry, feeling attractive in New York was an impossible feat. The 32-year-old, who grew up in Stuy Town and attended an all-girls private school, says her self-esteem was slowly sapped by the city’s sky-high beauty standards. “As a woman, you’re never enough,” says the sporty 5-foot-6 CEO. “I was never tall enough or slim enough. It grates on you after a while — that pressure to be a walking mannequin.”

    So Barry pulled a confidence-boosting move that more and more New Yorkers are considering lately: She fled NYC for a city that actually appreciates her.

    The UK should start behaving like a sovereign state and be much more active in seeking new trading alliances and policing their boundaries and territorial waters.

    If the UK has no legal brains in international law informed enough or motivated enough to stand up to the EU, there are experts overseas who could do the job – including from NZ. (The affirmative action appointment of Justice Goddard might have left a bad taste, but the smallest amount of background checking would have revealed that she was NZ’s lowest-rated judge). NZ has stood up to the EU and beaten it in international law cases. Australia has top experts as well.

    During its period with the EU the UK seems to have lost the world-wide perspective and energy that it once possessed in abundance.
