There are plenty of jews today who claim that "6 million jews died in the
holocaust", yet it's no more credible than the claim that 6 billion died in
one city.

Why do the jews always promote such STUPID lies?

One third of Americans are descendants of the Germans, 20-50 million of whom
were killed in WWII.  Why would any one of their families be any less
important than any one of the STUPID jews' families?

Where's the "holocaust museum" for them?

You REALLY don't seem to appreciate just how poor the performance of
American girls in TIMSS was.  On the physics portion, 32% of their responses
were not statistically significant, 23% were statistically significant
because they scored lower than if they'd just guessed, and of the 45% that
was statistically significant, the amount by which they scored lower than
boys was statistically significant on 24.4%, by which they scored higher
than boys was statistically significant on 2.6%, and the difference between
boys and girls was not stastically significant on 18%.

Yet their official TIMSS science score was 469.

A score of 469 is almost like a score of zero. No, it's worse--if it hadn't
been for some very simple give-away questions, like G-2 and G-3, they
actually would have scored lower than if they'd just guessed:

G2. When a small volume of water is boiled, a large volume of steam is
produced. Why? A. The molecules are further apart in steam than in water. B.
Water molecules expand when heated. C. The change from water to steam causes
the number of molecules to increase. D. Atmospheric pressure works more on
water molecules than on steam molecules. E. Water molecules repel each other
when heated.

G3. A jar of oxygen gas and a jar of hydrogen gas are at the same
temperature. Which of the following has the same value for the molecules of
both gases? A. the average velocity B. the average momentum C. the average
force D. the average kinetic energy
These are no-brainer questions. They don't require an ounce of reasoning or
calculations. All they required was to remember a few very basic principles.

But even on these simple questions, half of American girls got it wrong.

A score of 469 required absolutely no problems to be solved and no
calculations to be correct.

Yet Israel got an average score of 466, 3 points lower than American 12th
grade girls.

THAT is STUPID.

A factoid which probably less than a third of the world is even familiar
with, which ignores many other notable shipwrecks since then that most
people in the world are familiar with.  You probably don't even remember the
MS Estonia sinking and killing almost a 1,000 people just a decade ago, and
I wouldn't have remembered much about it except I was on it one week before
it sank and knew some of the people who drowned.

In 32 generations, not a word will be known about it.
