What credentials? Aerodynamics and fluid engineering?

hahahahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

I know you "don't need to prove your credentials to unknown folk over the internet". But i believe you already have, rather unwittingly.
I know that you are still embarrassed about me knowing more about ice accretion and the above than you, especially when that is not my field. It isn't my fault that the US probably has more than 50% of the world's PhD's and I happen to hang out with the cream of those who have patents on aircraft and engines. Actually, one of professions is that of teacher who started of working for ILEA.

As the schools are out now we can just shove them all in those.
That'll be quite a novel experience for many of them.

....Off. I teach when I want to! It amazes me that when people ca't argue the facts they argue grammar, spelling or semantics.

Anyway I just saw the vote on this thread. Most think that these looters are opportunists. So how come you don't have the same 'opportunists' rioting during times of plenty. It just goes to show how heavily biased this thread is, I am wasting my time with people who don't read or try to find out the facts but argue grammar, spelling or semantics. Get your heads out of your Thompson and Martinets, there is more to teaching than a grammar book. I'm off!

Huh? Your sentence made no sense whatsoever. I was merely seeking clarification.

You're a sensitive soul, aren't you?

Well don't take your clues from here:

But it's beyond Greece (a bit) and to the left of Southern Russia. I hope that helps.

Really? I thought you were hanging out with millionaires. Make up your mind. While we're on the topic - you know jack sh!t about ice accretion. That you have heard your millionaire / PhD / banker / Iranian friends discuss it once - that maybe I can buy.

Re: The Tottenham Riots....

I was going to make a comment about US and a number of degrees and if it should automatically mean people are a lot more educated than elsewhere, but I won't make that comment...Gov cash in edu is a good thing.

‎"Hello Rioters. Look at your friend, now back to me. Now at your friend, now back to me. Sadly, he isn't me, but if he stopped using petrol bombs and started using job centre he could potentially be me. Look down, back up. Where are we? You're at an interview with the man your friend could work for. What's in your hand? Back at me. I have it. It's an application form to that job you need. Look again. The form is now money. Anything is possible when you get a job and stop looting."
