Kid Takes Homemade Clock to School to Impress Teacher, They Arrest Him for ‘Making a Hoax Bomb’

| |

You know how our nation is always complaining that we don’t have enough bright young children entering STEM subjects — Science, technology, engineering and math?

Well, Irving, Texas probably isn’t going to churn out too many.

An apparently bright 14-year-old student named Ahmed Mohamed, who spent his free time in robotics club in middle school and spends his free time building his own radios at home, was arrested for attempting to impress his teacher by bringing a homemade clock to his new high school because, “It looks like a movie bomb.”

They didn’t mistake it for a bomb… they essentially insisted from the get go that there’s nothing else it could possibly be but a bomb.

Via Dallas News:

Ahmed’s clock was hardly his most elaborate creation. He said he threw it together in about 20 minutes before bedtime on Sunday: a circuit board and power supply wired to a digital display, all strapped inside a case with a tiger hologram on the front.

He showed it to his engineering teacher first thing Monday morning and didn’t get quite the reaction he’d hoped for. “He was like, ‘That’s really nice,’” Ahmed said. “‘I would advise you not to show any other teachers.’”

He kept the clock inside his school bag in English class, but the teacher complained when the alarm beeped in the middle of a lesson.

Ahmed brought his invention up to show her afterward. “She was like, it looks like a bomb,” he said. “I told her, ‘It doesn’t look like a bomb to me.’”

The teacher kept the clock. When the principal and a police officer pulled Ahmed out of sixth period, he suspected he wouldn’t get it back.

They led Ahmed into a room where four other police officers waited. He said an officer he’d never seen before leaned back in his chair and remarked: “Yup. That’s who I thought it was.”

“That’s who I thought it was”…?

I wonder if Ahmed’s engineering teacher thinks this story is as pitiful and ignorant as I (and thousands of people across the social media sphere) do.

Police investigative work is generally supposed to go like this: the cops are called to see if a crime took place. When they realize that OBVIOUSLY NONE DID, they are supposed to go back to whatever else they were doing (mostly revenue generating).

Instead, by all accounts they basically insisted that some kind of crime must have taken place because… “it looked like a movie bomb”.

Well, part of one anyway. A homemade clock doesn’t do much good as a bomb if it isn’t hooked to anything that explodes.

DUH. Even Looney Tunes cartoon characters know this.

Police, who were “skeptical” of the boy’s story that it was “just a clock,” (again, investigative skills much?) took the teen down to juvenile detention and fingerprinted him (for what?) before releasing him to his parents. The principal then suspended him for three days (FOR WHAT?).

Why does every adult in a position of authority in this situation sound less intelligent than the 14-year-old who was arrested?

So, even though the kid had implored the adults in the room over and over and over that this is simply a clock, and it obviously IS simply a clock, the clock itself is now sitting somewhere in an evidence room. Police are still considering pressing charges that Ahmed built a “hoax bomb,” scarring what appears to be a very smart little boy with a penchant for electronics for life because they are, by all accounts, completely and utterly ignorant.

Oh, and here’s another quote from the story:

He’s vowed never to take an invention to school again.

Great.

America’s public schools, it seems, just really aren’t places for smart kids these days.

These parents really should homeschool. This kid could probably go straight to college anyway. Nothing coming out of this so-called “school” is going to do anything but dumb him down and make him less intelligent… oh, and impress him with the idea that everyone is as moronic as these people have shown themselves to be.

    Proof that common sense and teachers are rarely in the same room together.

    • Lillyhammer Lip

      One must remember that nearly 80% of our K through college teachers/professors and administrators are left wing socialists. This is what controls what is taught in our educational system. So most parents see their sons/daughters off to school with little regard for the people who will influence them from day one of preschool/kindergarten well into college. Well parents for the most part have little time to really delve into the workings of the educational system. They WORK, or most of them do. It (the school) is little more than a baby sitting arrangement allowing the parents to work and be able to provide necessary food and clothing. I would ask if a real baby sitter were hired by the parents would they take care in selecting very good one(s)? When you have teachers such as those in this particular situation AND police with little common sense then this is what you get in our society. Why is it that we take notice of things like this only when it hits the news? Parents need to go to school board meetings and get involved in the educational system to prevent the hiring of incompetent teachers and administrators.

      The suspended a 5yo white girl for a hello kitty bubble gun but a 15yo moslem whose daddy is part of CAIR invents a briefcase size clock that needs a 120VAC power cord and people think he is smart. I guess he could be the smartest moslem like Sotomayor is the smartest latrina.

      • Sailor Uranus

        Good point who would make a freaky star trek briefcase sized Borg clock that gets him arrested and then get treated like some kind of genius?

  • SovereignPatriot88

    A school is no place for a child. They are way too dangerous (gun free zone), no learning will take place (common core) and children are very likely to wind up with some black mark on their permanent record because of some psychologist and lose their 2nd amendment rights for the rest of their lives (common core). No doubt that this incident will have some effect on the rest of his life for some bogus charge. His parents really should consider homeschooling him. Public school is functionally incapable of teaching him anything.

    • I wish he could read our comments to see we support him.

      • Sailor Uranus

        This isn’t some leave it to Beaver time where people can bring star trek inventions into the school. He should have left it at home and brought a photo to show his science teacher.

        • Maddog

          Bullshit, the ignorant employee’s of the school should not be pushing the mental disorder of liberalism and zero tolerance radicalism.

          • Sailor Uranus

            In a world where a mistake can end in tragedy people can never be too cautious ad if you think liberals are strict you should see how right wingers would cause mass paranoia with a story like this. I can just see the right wingers “middle eastern boy brings evil looking clock to school we need more tax money for security”.

          • Maddog

            “In a world where a mistake can end in tragedy people can never be too cautious”
            You should not get out of bed (trip on slippers). Or maybe not go to bed (suffocation by pillow). Holy shit you do have problem with freedom.

          • Sailor Uranus

            You missed the point i was actually saying the right wingers use stuff like this to take our freedom away. I never once said i had anything against freedom truth be told i value my freedom very much.

          • Maddog

            If that’s true, please review the concept of not giving up freedom for security. Life is full of risk and individual responsibility should be used to manage it. Maybe if our country’s sheeple still had a fear of God it would be a better place. Just a thought, I know that will never happen again.

          • Sailor Uranus

            People should never ever give up freedom for security because when they do that evil wins. By the way the god that is being worshiped by all monotheistic faiths is Cronus the architect of all things evil and that said being afraid of him accounts for nothing because fear is the opposite of true freedom. Example if one is afraid to go outside are they truly free?

          • Maddog

            People are evil, selfish, greedy, sloths that need moral direction or you’ll get the world you see around you.

          • Sailor Uranus

            I would put more trust in my fellow humanity than i would some devil god any day of the week.

          • BW83

            Didn’t you just say you can never be too cautious?

            Here’s the thing, if you’re going to express an opinion at least have the spine to stick with it.

          • Sailor Uranus

            Yeah as a matter of fact i did say that and i stick by it too.

          • BW83

            Caution, like anything can be taken to the extreme. Everything in moderation. Caution becomes a bad thing when it freezes you from making choices.

          • Reverend Draco

            If a kid is afraid to bring something he built to school for show and tell, is he truly free?

          • Sailor Uranus

            Their is freedom and then their is common sense. Example are you free to drive at 100MPH in a school zone? Or are you free to go in the Pentagon any time you please? Are you free to drive a powerboat in a public swimming pool? common sense Common Sense COMMON SENSE!

          • Reverend Draco

            Yes – common sense, of a variety that the teachers & cops displayed neither jot nor tittle of.

          • Reverend Draco

            Fear of god is the problem – fear of the imagined, rather than the actual.

            If the majority are Christian, the majority of the problems are caused by Christians – how can more god be an improvement?
            That’s like saying that the majority of people are Arsonists, most fires are caused by Arsonists, so we need more Arsonists to reduce the number of fires.

            What we need are more people with critical thinking skills, not more mythology.

          • Maddog

            “What we need are more people with critical thinking skills” Okay, tell me where your going to get these sheeple. Based on your other comments, you know they are not coming out of schools. Matter-of-fact they are being dumbed down intentionally. I do not what problems you say God is causing. I do know of the problems the sheeple are causing by not obeying His laws. Tell me what one of the ten commandments would be detrimental to society.

          • Reverend Draco

            Let’s see. . . how about. . . the first 4, which do nothing but demand a person grovel before authority without question?

            If there were Any logic to the list, #6 would be first, #8 would be combined with 5, 7, 9 and 10, and be placed second as “Thou shalt not be dishonest,” and the first 4 eliminated entirely as the credo of slaves. Leaving 2 commandments.

            To be completely honest, the Wiccans have the best list of all, the most sensible, logical, reasonable (add any adjective synonymous with the prior 3), of any religion ever invented. It’s even in the Founding Principles:
            ‘An it harm none, do as thou will.

            This is the very foundation of “No victim, no crime.”

          • Sailor Uranus

            The first four commands were penned by Cronus worshipers and anyone who knows Greek mythology Cronus is the jealous god of time who was so evil he imprisoned his own children lest one surpass him in strength which is the exact same kind of jealousy we see in Eden when Yahweh said “Man has become like us knowing good a evil”..

          • Sailor Uranus

            The first four commands are religious Saturn worshiping rubbish and are most certainly detrimental to society. Example who cares if someone mows the lawn on Saturn Day? Who cares if someone worships a graven statue? Who cares if someone blasphemes El Saturn by taking his accursed name in vain? Who cares if someone wants to worship another god in place of El Saturn who by the way isn’t a god at all? To be honest i would rather someone do all of the above rather than follow some jealous hateful excuse for a god that hates humanity. Cronus/Saturn is so jealous he even devoured his own children rather than have someone surpass him in strength. Not only that the freak claims to have flooded the earth because he is such a jealous god.

          • BW83

            Left-wingers don’t take away our freedom? Once again, trying to delineate between the two as to who more oppresses the people is flawed, they both do, and that my friend is the problem.

            Before you respond with a “right-wing” attack realize I’m neither. I truly, honestly, deeply have no use for either side and it disturbs me when people assume I do.

          • Sailor Uranus

            I just made that exact point thirty minutes ago on another story where i basically said that people can’t see the wings for the bird. I also compared it to a field mouse so mesmerized by the wings he couldn’t see a hungry bird looking for lunch.

          • BW83

            Ah, fair enough. Didn’t read too far into the comments. I might have jumped the gun just a bit.

          • Sailor Uranus

            I must admit its hard to comment to dozens of people.

          • BigGaySteve

            In leftist Boston no one was unPC enough to profile the people that beheaded 3 gay jews on sept 11 2011. They just so happened to be next door neighbors of the Boston Marathon Moslems.

          • Reverend Draco

            You do realize that the Boston Marathon attack was a false flag, right? That the “Moslems” were scapegoats? That it was even the exact same, unaltered, script from 9/11?

            Or, maybe you don’t, and that’s your problem.

          • I felt bad for the Boston patsies at first but then I realized…. wait, they were already working with the feds so unless that was coercion to hell with them.

          • arahn

            I think the same about Lee Harvey Oswald. He was a “patsy” as he said. So, he signed-up to do a job but his managers never told him what the job was and that he’d be their fall guy and then shot and killed before he got the chance to tell his side of the story. I don’t know what they told him he’d be doing but it is obvious they left out those detail just like with those Boston patsies. As we’ve seen with other false flags it can pay-off to play a role in the production or you could end-up dead as the fall guy.

          • Off topic: I got the first vid done! I had overheating problems with my VMs otherwise I would have much more right now but this is a start. Multi-app win 8.1 install using ninite: https://anonfiles.com/file/e05a12f4c7918f0b7008a322838101b1

          • arahn

            What app should I use to open it?

          • It is an .mkv which works in VLC player(vlc player is the BEST player, you never need codecs, it just plays everything to begin with) videolan.org/vlc/ . They restricted me on file formats over at anonfiles so I couldn’t just upload a .mp4 like I wanted to for some stupid, unknown reason so I just went with .mkv because that is one of the formats they accept. I even tried zipping it but it still wouldn’t let me so .mkv it is.

          • arahn

            Thanks for clearing that up. I downloaded it and my W8.1 used the Xbox Video player as the default app to open it but then when I tried to open it anyway it wouldn’t open — gave me some error crap that I didn’t bother writing down.
            I looked into booting from USB and discover my MoBo bios doesn’t make that easy. I have an ASUS uefi mobo and to change it to boot to boot from USB requires many changes. For one example: when I try to change Secure Boot (in order to allow booting from another source than HDD or Optical drive) then I have to change Secure Boot to custom which then opens up a dozen setting I’m supposed to change/or not change I don’t know what they even mean. I suppose I should write them down. Another option is to create another HDD with just that bootable media on it then in bios select that drive as the boot drive. I’m shying away from the idea of using the old XP pc cause don’t have enough room for 2 pcs in here and I have a wife to b*tch at me about the clutter…so. seeing how to use this one.

          • In the BIOS you have to disable secure boot AND enable legacy boot options. They are all different but all the same if you know what I mean. No matter the options, it is the same mission to enable legacy boot option. Fortunately all BIOS systems come with a “restore to defaults” option if you cause your computer to not boot. You know what, I’ve always used legacy boot so I’m not sure if you can boot TAILS from UEFI but it has to otherwise many people would not be able to figure out how to use it. What model mobo is it? You can easily determine that by using this: piriform.com/speccy – the free version of course. If I can look up the BIOS I will be able to tell you the settings needed BUT this is all for a complete install, is that what you are trying to do?

          • arahn

            It’s and ASUS CM1745, version: Rev X.0x
            I’m really going to school on this. Until yesterday I didn’t know what a uefi mobo was or MBR v GPT. Then if I get my MoBO set inot fast boot it wouldn’t even give me the Mobo splash screen to enter bios to change anything. At one point I had it so screwed up I had to reset the MoBo — Unplug it, take out the cmos battery hold the power button to discharge the caps. then put it all back together so I could boot bios again. Like I said, before yesterday I didn’t know anything about any of that 🙂

          • That is how I got my job… being really good at fixing any PC, software, networks, web code, hard ware, virus removal, security, maintenance, etc.. Anything they throw at me broken I return fixed.

          • There is a F key you need to hit during boot up to get to the boot menu where you should be able to boot from usb. For Dell machines it is F12, for HPs it is F9, for AUSUS it is… I can’t remember… damn.
            Here are some ASUS instructions:

            Model: K55V

            I figured it out, and I’ll post here for reference.
            ASUS BIOS in laptops by default are locked. You need to unlock it. To do this in Windows 8:
            In Metro, go to the bottom right and in the hover menu select Settings
            GO to General
            Go to Advanced
            Go to Boot to UEFI (or something like that).
            Then it will reset the laptop and go to BIOS. In BIOS:
            Disable Secure Boot
            Enable Launch CSM
            Save and Exit, repeat the above steps to get to BIOS.
            NOW you can change the boot order.

            Also, to use that HDD for something like windows 7, you have to do some things from the command line also using a command line utility called DISKPART

          • arahn

            Thank, for that I’ll copy it so I can reference it again later.
            Yes for mine it’s either F2 or Del (either will boot to bios) but for a time it wasn’t letting me boot to bios so I had to reset bios as I said. This has happened to others because I did some searching to find the solution to my problem and if no one else had the problem there wouldn’t be posts on it.

          • DISKPART instructions that i use: techpp.com/2012/11/13/downgrade-windows-8-to-windows-7/ these are good too:
            eightforums.com/tutorials/13326-downgrade-windows-8-windows-7-a.html

          • F2 or Del is for setup but usually there is another separate F key for boot menu. I don’t know about your model but I can’t see why it would be any different. My dell has F2 as setup but F12 as boot menu. HPs have Del as setup, F9 as boot menu. FYI.

          • arahn

            Thanks, now with VLC I was able to play the vid … but disappointed that there’s no voice 😉

          • Oh I am a silent one, lol, even IRL I won’t say much unless I know you. I am not shy I just generally hate people so there is no point in talking, lol. anonfiles can be read by anyone and they can ID voices these days so I stay away from that. I will use annotations if needed though. These will be just quick demos that will show you what I am doing and how to set this crap up. The email stuff will be very beneficial IMO.
            Glad the vid worked and VLC is awesome, you can stream youtube videos through it as well as audio steams. I have yet to find something it won’t play. It is a standard in my company, then I don’t have to hear “Help! I can’t play this video.” The ones that push back and go, “Well what if I don’t want to use that player?” I say to them “Then go use whatever you wish just don’t come back and bother me if it doesn’t work.” I know what works but hey, if they want to be an “expert,” let them, I don’t care, but I also will not have my time wasted to support their “expert” ideas.

          • arahn

            Working on setting-up ninite, thanks, do you have any recommendations on a systems utilities, in particular a registry repair/cleaner. It’s not that my registry is bad but after a few years of use there’s a lot of unused registry entries to get rid of to make everything run faster. In the old days I’d just reinstall the OS to get a fresh and clean registry but now with W8.1 they made even that a pain.

          • The best IMO: piriform.com/ccleaner – free version.

          • The next vid I will do: win8.1 privatization techniques + browser setup. These are the steps I would do anyway before I started to really use a machine.

          • Wags71

            Wow, how did I not know about ninite? Thanks a lot! Awesome!

          • You are welcome! It is a godsend for sure!

          • I don’t know the details of that… interesting.

          • arahn

            Yes, Oswald was mixed-up with the shady people. His move to Russia for example. The Russian always knew he was a CIA operative. So the CIA pulled him back to the USA for other missions ’cause he was useless to them in Russia. His mission in the USA was to pose as a communist radical (faux opposition). To cut to the short I don’t think he knew what they were doing in Dallas that day — he had no idea that they were going to kill JFK and blame him. He went into the theatre right after the shooting ’cause he knew something was f’ked up. When they arrested him watch the videos of him declaring “I’m a patsy” just before (I forget the mafia/cia asset guys name) shot him. You will see he has some awareness that he’s been set-up and just needs a chance to give his side of the story — which is why they killed him before he could.

          • Wow, great stuff.

          • Lillyhammer Lip

            Where have you been??? You have mistaken left wingers for right wingers. A majority of time it is the left wing socialist/democrats who call for more taxes for ANYTHING and EVERYTHING including more security. That is their solution to everything. And not only that, they think that there is more money from where the last tax money came from (the TAXPAYER).

            All this proves is that multiculturalism cannot work. I am sorry for that boy, though.

          • Sailor Uranus

            Well multiculturalism was working quite well between Europeans, Chinese, Japanese, Hispanics,and Native Americans. Sure their was always a few problems but that can be expected because all humans have problems. However things quickly fell apart when Africans and Middle Easterners were thrown into the equation. The reason is simple a large portion of them seek to dominate all other races of people.

          • BW83

            As much as I hate to be “that guy” I agree (I don’t mean agreeing with you). One wants everything given to them, the other wants everyone bowing to their god.

            As I’ve said, I hate being “that guy” and I try to give everyone a fair shot, but just calling it off what I’ve seen.

          • Me too, smart kid be penalized for being smart instead of encouraged. That disgusts me.

          • BigGaySteve

            its 2015 a briefcase sized clock that needs a 120VAC power source hardly qualifies him as smart, except for a moslem. His Daddy is part of CAIR it was either a trial run or a publicity stunt.

          • Thanks for the info, didn’t know that.

          • Wags71

            I tried to quit school when I was 10 because my teacher said I was wrong for figuring out a different way to solve a problem than she taught us.

          • I hear ya, I spent an entire school year in the principal’s office. They got tired of making me go down there so they moved my desk into her office. Funny thing though… I had straight A’s but instead of giving me a higher level of work, moving me up a grade, or challenging me educationally, they instead sought to convince me of what a terrible person I was. I was young but I even knew back then that they were no good and were full of shit, not much as changed either, I still think the same way now. If you are intelligent you will find your own way.

          • arahn

            They do this to anyone who doesn’t assimilate. The purpose of school is to indoctrinate you into being a sheeple. Even if the school teachers are stupid sheeple themselves they’ve been trained to spot non-sheeple and use extra measures to get you indoctrinated. The point where they isolate you from all the other students is to prevent you from influencing them. See, you can be a “rebel” all you want as long as you are still a sheeple but as soon as you show them you are not being indoctrinated then they use extra measures on you. They did the same with me. I didn’t understand how the system worked enough so I just ended-up confused by it all — to a thinking person all of their contradictions are confusing but not to a sheeple.

          • Great explanation. I like the way you put things.

          • arahn

            Thanks, likewise.

          • Wags71

            Psychiatrists have also labeled that as a mental disorder. Won’t be long before there is forced treatment, especially for the dummies who sign up for Obamacare.

          • You’re right, man. It is going to get ugly. Cannabis in a varporizer = no need for medical care. Can’t wait to tell you about my mobile setup. You can do it in public and nobody notices or cares, it’s awesome!

          • Wags71

            Nice, I got the desktop setup down. Ready for mobile and possibly liquid. The liquid equipment is so overwhelming!

          • I bought a vape sabre from these guys: http://puffnuggs.com/ – and it is awesome BUT the coil is HUGE and I don’t own a cannabis shop to able to afford to keep filling and using it. Oil is expensive. My mobile setup is superior but it unfortunately involves china 🙁

          • Wags71

            hehe, money is getting tight on my end. My gf got laid off. Have to wait for all my tax garnishments to end.

          • Got a solution for that too, lol! You’re already an IT guy so you’re already set up.

            I’m like you in that regard.

          • arahn

            well, keep me in the loop too. I can’t make money faster than the cartels take it from me.

          • You can do a dual approach. Make money on the up and up and also on the DL. I have a self-made millionaire teaching me the up and up part, the DL part came naturally , lol.

          • Wags71

            Oh and check my edit above, sorry.

          • Well I can point you in the right direction with that definitely. I think I have found the best prices out there bar none, legal or illegal. My last O was $160 and it is very high quality.

          • Wags71

            Yeah, I started poking around and found some in that range. Got nervous.

          • You will get nothing but crap unless you know who to go to. I just got crap because he went on vacation and there was no listing so I had to go elsewhere. I hate what I got, I even tried to give it away and was turned down, lol. Now I know to keep an eye out ahead of time.

          • Geez, I was just talking to a guy about getting my pilot’s license so I can fly small aircraft and not have to worry about the tyranny. I don’t travel that much though so it is hard to justify the expense. For now I want to fly these: youtube.com/watch?v=mAA4zQ-5mHo

          • Wags71

            I don’t fly much either anymore. I try to avoid it. Won’t be long before you need an implant to leave the house in the name of national security. This was the Real ID debate from about 10 years ago.

            Although NY has started to issue these which will be good in place of a passport:

            http://www.dhs.gov/enhanced-drivers-licenses-what-are-they

            Enhanced drivers licenses make it easier for U.S. citizens to cross the border into the United States because they include:

            a vicinity Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)
            chip that will signal a secure system to pull up your biographic and
            biometric data for the CBP officer as you approach the border inspection
            booth

            HELL NO! Gee, and then the police will be able to pull up your info without probable cause… WTF

          • Oh wow, a new world order license that still says the US instead of the UN because the common core kids haven’t grown up yet. Put it in the microwave, no more RFID, that’s what I will do.

          • Wags71

            Yup. At least my tolerance is gone.

            I need other sources. I’m too old to hang out at bars. In fact, I won’t go to bars anymore. It seems like everyone eventually quits only to have younger people take their place (who I’ll never meet).

          • Did you even get to use your vaporizer? I thought you said you liked vaping?

          • Wags71

            Not with cannabis yet. Only with other herbs, which are pretty nice. In a few hours…

          • Well I am trying hard to help you, believe me. My damn laptop overheated twice last night while trying to make videos but I have a solution thanks to my girl pointing out the obvious, lol. We have central air so all I have to do is do the videos lying on my stomach with my laptop on top of one of the AC vents. These videos will take me like a half hour to record, then another half hour to an hour to edit so you’re not downloading 500mb videos that are mostly still screen shots waiting for stuff to load. I can show you a lot in a short amount of time by editing it down.

            Sorry it has taken this long, I expected for you guys to be up and running by now but I keep hitting technical road blocks(overheating machine). I put a super fast SSD in my machine so its fast as shit but now overheats, lol. I like the speed so I’m not taking it out, I’ll just deal with the overheating… doesn’t happen much though, only when I am asking for lots of resources like my host OS, then TOR, 2 VPNs, virtual box vm’s + recording video all a the same time, lol.

          • Wags71

            Hey man, no worries at all. I’m good for two months now plus whatever I save from vaping and from loss of tolerance. Take your time. I really appreciate everything you’re doing!

          • Wow, you’re good for 2 months? Well, with a vaporizer it does last forever. If I get absolute top shelf stuff it will last 2months per ounce, that’s why I absolutely have to have the food saver for storage otherwise my bud would get dry and crispy and burn my throat when I vape. With a food saver you can preserve the freshness for months.

          • Wags71

            My gf didn’t smoke as much as me, so it was mostly me. If I smoked more than that, my lungs would hurt. Plus I can’t do it while working or I’ll never stop. lol Dangers of working from home..

            I already had a foodsaver, they’re great.

          • Wags71

            whoa, yeah…. *grin*

          • Wags71

            I didn’t know my lungs had taste buds. I know you know what I mean. haha

          • Tastes good, right? I often vape excessively solely because of the wonderful taste.

          • Wags71

            Oh yeah. That first draw off a fresh bowl pack tastes soooo good.

          • Yup, I always say the first hit sucks but tastes the best then the following hits are much better but have diminished taste. Getting the next vid edited… Can’t wait to get the email one finished so then we can talk, just found some really cool stuff this weekend… really cool! I hate looking at stuff when I can’t buy it though, that is super frustrating, lol.

          • Wags71

            Can’t wait to check it out.

          • I hope those packs are lasting long for you. If it is okay quality I do get vapor but it is just meh but if I get really good stuff I only need to put in a tiny bit and I can blow out clouds for 10-20hits!

          • Wags71

            I’m getting 10-20, but feel like I’m going too long sometimes. At the end, I get the most smoke, but it seems more like smoke than vapor when it gets really dry (and it’s harsher). Still figuring it out. I keep turning the temp down. The stuff I got is just ok and seems like it’s really fresh.

            Crazy how compressed it gets in the foodsaver. haha

          • Well after much searching the other night I found my peeps so I will be able to make things easy for you. You HAVE to try top shelf bud grounds in a vaporizer, it is sooo good. That is ALL we have, we can’t use any less quality than that because of my girl’s MS otherwise I wouldn’t be so picky but we have no choice because her MS will act up if the cannabis isn’t very potent. Too bad you don’t live close by, I have almost an ounce that I am giving away because it is too weak. I bet it is still stronger than what most people get though.
            **The better it is the lower the temp will need to be. Turn it up, more cloud less taste, turn it down means less cloud but more taste + it will last longer. If you have it set for normal stuff and then pack some top shelf stuff what will happen is your hits will become really cloudy(not smokey because it isn’t smoke but vape clouds ya know) and you will be coughing after each hit. This is a symptom that it is turned up too high and you should turn it down, your hits should only make you cough if you take giant ones. Also be sure not to pack too much. How much is too much? If air flow is impeded from too much bud grounds in the vape bowl it will heat the silicone piece up significantly causing it to wear out much faster(it won’t tightly hold the glass pieces anymore) and your bowl pack to last only a percentage of what it would have had it been packed correctly. To this day I screw up bowl packs every now and then by putting too much in so don’t think this is mastered quickly or anything, the basic rule is fill loosely to the silicone rim, then tamp down with the tool. Super high quality bud needs less than that and filling it up to the silicone will clog it and cause it to rise in temps, it is a learning curve indeed. I thought I was doing everything right when I was packing too much… I did that for like a year until I finally realized and my silicone piece had to be replaced…at least it was only $11, lol. That’s the best part IMO, once you have that vaporizer and some extra screens your operating costs basically vanish. The only things that need to be relaced are the screens(I always use 2 at a time) every 6 months or so, the silicone piece every few years, and I replace the tube it comes with, with a latex tube from home depot and I have to change it out every 6 months but sometimes I stretch it to a year. The (2) vape tubes I am using now are pretty funky, I already have the replacement tube I just haven’t replaced it yet.

          • Wags71

            I’m using a metal screen and a ceramic. They work pretty well together. I usually fill a little above the rim and tamp it down but not too hard to the rim. I always get it to where I can still get good airflow. Guess that’s a bit much? I did order the silicon tube when I ordered and that seem much nicer because it doesn’t kink.

            Does this thing use a lot of electricity? I feel like I leave it on too long sometimes.

          • Hmmm, I have ceramic but I only tried just ceramic and I was inhaling flakes, lol! Maybe that combo is the trick, thanks! As long as your heat resistant silicone piece(if you got the ez-change whip) does not get so hot that you cannot touch it you are fine, you should always be able to grab the heat resistant silicone and hold onto it for a few seconds without it burning you right after you vape. If that silicone gets too hot too often the rear end of the glass whip will start to sag no matter which side you plug it into, then it needs replaced. I over-packed mine for over a year! You get better over time and less is not better. Better to do the right amount 2 times than to put extra in there and screw up the air flow, your cloud, taste, and how long it lasts will tell you.
            I am not really sure about electricity usage but mine will usually be on all weekend, day and night. It is a good night light for downstairs, lol. My second one, same model, is in the bedroom. Got tired of lugging our 1 unit up and down the stairs so I bought another one, scratch and dent, for $160 off the website. I can’t tell why they marked it scratch and dent either. Without the whip it is an innocent looking box. we store the whip in freezer bags when needed as that is the only part that has a smell to it. I keep my whip clean though, a clean whip means better effect but I am not sure why bu heer is my theory: I think that the active compounds in the medicine will tend to stick to each other and when there is build-up on the glass your hits will do less and less. Clean the glass with hot water and it will be stronger again. I clean the screens every 5 packs or so and I clean the rear end of the whip weekly + the mouth piece when needed. The ceramic mouth piece is my favorite, I have glass also.

          • Wags71

            I think I’m on the right track. I’m cleaning about that often. The brushes make it a snap and I don’t let the silicon piece get too hot. I might buy another whip for the other herbs I like.

          • You sound like you are! Since I have 2 whips what I do is take the silicone piece with the screens and the bowl head attached(the top half, if you will) and bring that upstairs with me at night so I can pack the one upstairs as well as the top half of my downstairs whip and just change the top half out when the first one dies. It saves a little time doing that, especially if you are watching a movie and wish to vape for a while without interruption. You could use the same concept, which, now that you mention it, I think I will do also for vaping other herbs. It may be cheaper to just buy an extra silicone, bowl head, and some extra screens but I don’t know for sure. I really want you to get the good stuff, ya gotta see how well it vapes and the taste…. + it is so cheap that you may be paying more for what you have now.

          • Wags71

            Yeah, me too! It’s hard not to sit here and vape while working.

            I finally got my herbs from mailorder. I should have guessed what 8 ounces of mullein and 4 ounces of all the other ones was going to look like. I better start drinking tea too. I could go on a trade mission to Europe. haha

          • Wags71

            I imagine it has salvia in it which is banned in about half the states. I bet I have everything but the salvia that is in that. And it’s lame that they don’t list the ingredients.

            I bet I could sell smoking blends with all the herbs I have now and mark it up by about 1000%. lol

            Just those little dry herb blends that vapor brothers sells are about 10 cents worth of herbs, but they cost $10.

          • Wow, yeah you could do that and make $$$$!

          • Wags71

            First decent idea I’ve had in awhile, though I don’t know how much people are looking for it. I just know when I looked there wasn’t much. Especially locally. There was nothing.

          • You could “own” the head shops with your products and make a gigantic profit, dude, you are definitely onto something. All you would need is those little dime baggies but a little larger and a nice icon/graphical sticker on it to make it appealing to people.

          • Yo man my damn video just went obsolete! The VPN vendor changed their system, probably because of me, lol. Got a backup config working though with failsafe but it is a windows setup, it is free and does torrents, I’ll add my torrent setup in there for arahn and you can see what I do too. I am trying to get arahn set up in windows first so he can then use the encrypted email. For you I need to make dd-wrt stuff and TAILS but that still involves windows or another OS as you have to download a few portable apps first. TAILS uses CLAWS mail and you can use that on windows or linux. You can use thunderbird portable for windows also which is what I will probably use for the first email vid, the second one will be in TAILS with that version. It was a bitch to get working so it will save you time for sure.

          • Wags71

            Jeez, that’s crazy! It’s gonna be awesome!

            I’m not sure if I’m going to do dd-wrt, because I don’t want to appear to my work that I’m connecting from Zimbabwe or whatever and I’m not sure that I want to continue changing it.

          • Oh, I meant at home, lol! I thought you had dd-wrt routers at home. I have a linksys e2500 that I put dd-wrt firmware on. My home connection is split right after the modem and it plugs into a switch that goes to 2 routers on different subnets. 1 does not have the ability to connect to a vpn, the other does. I had to do this so my girl would stop bitching that her netflix was messed up because I was sending the traffic from my whole house through the vpn. Now I have my own wifi I connect to + a backup wifi to quickly switch to if I am having problems but since the backup wifi has no vpn capability it only works when I am using an unencrypted connection.

          • Wags71

            Ahhhh, I guess I could do that too. I have two routers lying around with dd-wrt on them already. I was talking about setting up my main router through the vpn, which would then attach to my work’s vpn and they might find it fishy at work because I don’t know what they monitor. (I work from home)

          • Ahh, now I see. A switch going to 2 routers on different subnets would be ideal for you then. You have the same situation as me but from a different scenario.

          • Wags71

            It’s a bit fluffy so it’s probably outdoor. Tons of red hairs, not many crystals.

          • You will be paying less for better stuff than anyone else soon 😉
            I seriously doubt anyone gets better stuff cheaper, not even in legal states, it’s that good, you’ll see.

          • Wags71

            sounds great!

          • Wags71

            Man, we must be long lost brothers. lol My desk was always in the corner or right next to the teacher. I had some really terrible teachers who never encouraged me to push myself and always held me back. I wasn’t even allowed to read when I was done with my work, so I got into trouble. But I also had 2 or 3 teachers who got the most out of me and actually taught me how to teach myself. Which is what has continued my education throughout my entire life. I was lucky I had them. This is what they purposefully avoid today. They only teach kids what to think, not how to think.

          • Lol, sure seems like it. I had one teacher that I kind of liked but even she hated me, lol. I was at odds with my teachers and they lowered my grades because of it. I knew this so my work had to be that much better so if there was a problem with my grade(I didn’t just accept a B+, I wanted to know, specifically, why it was not an A. They did not like me questioning them and my grades started to reflect that(all of the sudden all of my A’s went down to B’s?)) I could use my work as evidence.. and did at times. When I finally did graduate that damn school I was placed in the lower track classes in my high school for the learning impaired. In short, they screwed me. Without knowing or trying I aced that track in school, I was ranked 7th out of all freshmen so they moved me up to the top “gifted” track and again, without much effort, I aced that also and my ranking rose to fourth, then finally 3rd. The two guys ahead of me were a little socially retarded and stayed in and studied without doing much else. I had girlfriends, smoked weed and partied(not that I condone this now), went out all of the time, and still held the position of number 3. A number one spot was attainable but no doubt those guys were both smart and worked harder at it than I did and I wasn’t willing to give up everything else(friends, girlfriends, and a great social life) just to grab that top spot.

            I just was thinking about Pink Floyd “the wall” and how they had already nailed this. What I entertained was an original thought was long preceded by them https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qs35t2xFqdU

          • Oh yeah, they were prophetic. I use psilocybe cyanescens every few months(at the solstaces/equinoxes) and play dark side of the moon on repeat… A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! My girl, who is admittedly naive was like “How did they know? How did they know this music would do this to us on shrooms? How did they know?” – she was serious, I just laughed. Musical geniuses with a timeless album, just like The Wall!

            He needs money to stay in the race; selling his soul to Monsatan for a lot of shekels -pathetic.
            “In a strange twist, Rand Paul has recently allied with Monsanto and has joined the ranks of academic shill Kevin Folta after coming out against GMO labeling, stating that the labeling requirements would push up the price of food for consumers — particularly poor”

            I’ve heard that illegal, immoral ME wars for Israel are wasting U.S. taxpayers trillions of dollars, but never do you hear a politician even mention that fact.

            Now one can see who they are beholden to.

          • arahn

            Very interesting. First your comment is spot-on accurate and shows Rand Paul to be just another douche bag politician but that NN removed it is very suspicious. Of course you saw the one they removed that I reposted here recently but before that one there was another one that they removed (bothof the removed comments would have been offensive only to die-hard Zionists of which Rand Paul is. I’ve seen NN let a lot of garbage comments through but they draw the line when it comes to criticizing the Zionists.

          • Yes, NN, the zionist “news” front. Kosher comments allowed only. I was thinking of your example when I typed mine, thought I’d reinforce to you what they are doing by providing another example.

          • arahn

            did they remove dr pavlovs comment too or just yours?

          • Nope, his is still there but mine really called them out so that may be why they removed it. Good comments from that guy though, I always up vote his stuff… smart guy.

          • arahn

            Yeah, when I first read that I assumed they removed both comments. Hmmm, strange they only removed yours except as you say it points-out their bias.

          • Wags71

            Yeah, they’re horrible. I don’t even know why I keep reading. I skip most of the articles because I know what they’re going to say before I read them.

          • They are going downhill fast, the new MSM!

            I have a unique ability to remember stupid stuff teacher taught in school that I later learned to be utterly wrong. It is amazing that these teachers think they are right no matter how wrong they are because they are the ‘authority’ to you which is part of the indoctrination BTW — to accept authority as truth instead of truth as authority.

          • Absolutely I say that all of the time. People think they are awake but they still believe in space, religion, history, or even science/evolution because they have been trained that the authority is the truth… spot on, man. Truth is the authority no matter what.

          • Wags71

            I had a college professor who gave me a D on a paper I wrote predicting the fall of the Soviet Union right after the fall of the Berlin wall. She said ‘that’s stupid, it will never happen’.

            Are you kidding me? We should avoid danger at all costs? Well that can apply to really anything. Here’s something folks like you just don’t seem to grasp, LIFE IS DANGEROUS, no way around it. A mistake could have always ended in tragedy, whether it was a “leave it beaver” time period or not.

            I could personally care less how either side would twist this story to further their agenda. They’re both, dems and reps, assholes. The only reason the average person thinks their necessary is due to the fact they keep electing them to solve the problems they created in the first place.

          • I voted Republican years ago because my father forced me and I had nowhere else to live. I can honestly say that I crumbled up and thew away every single jury notice I ever got and now that I am a criminal they leave me alone.

          • BW83

            No shame there, I bought into the big lie at one point myself. I was registered democrat (the only viable option in a small town if you even want to vote lol) and voted republican. The more I looked at it the more I noticed they were the same, just with different animal representation lol.

            On the positive, now I no longer have to worry about standing in line to vote for the next pychopath that no one really wants but they hate less than the other guy.

          • Reverend Draco

            I declared myself a Democrat when I was 10 – by the time I was old enough to vote, I understood that the most significant difference between the 2 parties was their emblems.

            I almost never voted for a person, and mostly voted on initiatives to say, “NO!”
            (well, except for Prop 19 a few years ago)

            They shouldn’t be pushing ideals at all. Knowledge can be given without ideological bias hitching a ride.

            The average child can get a better education on the internet now a days than they could ever get in the most prestigious school, and that knowledge could be custom-tailored to that specific child as well. Why the system we have hasn’t collapsed from its own bloated obesity boggles me.

          • You could keep your child at home, never enroll them into any school and just use youtube, Khan academy youtube.com/user/khanacademy, and you will have a very smart/educated child… for free! Oh, it will cost attention and time which seems too much for parents these days.

          Brought a photo? Yeah, so same teacher, who I question their credentials given their reaction to the situation, could call the authorities and get the families house raided. Definitely seems like the better alternative doesn’t it :rolls eyes:. That way some trigger happy cop, with questionable judgement, could have shot or killed one of this kids family members…..all over a “bomb” which was actually a clock.

          What was it you said about mistakes ending in tragedy again? You fail to acknowledge that flawed reasoning works both ways.

    • Sailor Uranus

      That comment is out of sync with this story where a boy brought some cyborg clock into the school. If the kid makes some star trek borg contraption at home fine just don’t bring it to school or any other public place for that matter.

      • Why?

        • Sailor Uranus

          Because this story is addressing a fairly serious incident that could have sparked a panic. That aside the boy shouldn’t be charged only reprimanded for bringing a weird looking experiment into class. If he wanted to impress the science teacher he should have taken a photo and explained how the thing works.

          • Weird looking and illegal or dangerous are 2 different things. Why aren’t there people out there intelligent enough to see this? So we don;t carry around sophisticated devices so it doesn’t scare stupid people? You are describing Idiocracy, the movie.

          • Reverend Draco

            It’s “weird-looking,” unfamiliar tech – it must be magic! Burn the witch!

          • You nailed it, that is the mentality on exhibit.

          • Reverend Draco

            Arthur C. Clark once famously said that, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Like the automatic doors which were once found exclusively on Starfleet vessels.

            Sad thing is, that technology sufficiently common that a middle school student can build it after dinner, is indistinguishable from magic to the Idiocracy.

          • Maddog

            that great.

          • BigGaySteve

            You could buy a finger ring that had a watch on it 10 years ago. This wouldn’t even advanced before I was born.

          • Reverend Draco

            14 year old kids don’t generally have access to the micro-soldering machines necessary to build a finger-watch. Even fewer have the fine motor control that is required to solder a finger-watch by hand.

            Your education doesn’t seem very advanced, either. Maybe you could have young Ahmed build you one?

          • BigGaySteve

            None of the works was hand soldered, he took apart a clock and screwed the display onto the briefcase. The only work he did was screwing the display. Look at Steve Sailer’s site to see a high def pic of the briefcase.

          • Reverend Draco

            None of the works was a fucking fingerwatch, either.

            Try to keep up.

            I looked at a high-def picture of the pencil box. . . nothing scary about it – unless you go through your entire day barely holding back the flood of piss scared out of you by everything.

          • BigGaySteve

            There is even the connection for a backup 9 volt battery, did this moslem genius invent that only to forget the battery? A 7yo white boy was suspended for eating a pop tart into the shape of a gun. Bath House Barry Said “You Didn’t Build That” “14yo boy that took a clock apart and said he built IS IS an affirmative action genius for a moslem. This was a plan by his daddy to get attention the week of 911

          • Sailor Uranus

            First off he shouldn’t be punished only reprimanded and most importantly he needs to be told that thing’s aren’t the same as fifty years ago.

          • They aren’t the same because misplaced fear… EXACTLY what caused the “problems” in this article. Education goes a long way but there is no education so what are you left with? People who lock kids up for clocks because they are stupid.

          • Sailor Uranus

            This world has many problems and only now are people beginning to realize they were lied to for 2000 years by a malevolent force that wants their spiritual energy and that is why they live in fear. Years ago i asked Christ into my heart and was invaded by a demonic selfish entity that tried to control my entire life. To make la long story short i had to renounce him and find the true Creator goddess Serenity/Seline.

          • Maddog

            As I recall Zeus struck her with a lightening bolt causing her chariot to crash into the moon for being a slut. Oh, and another name for Zeus would be Nimrod. Are you sure these are the gods you want to worship?

          • Sailor Uranus

            Yeshua the begotten son of Cronus is the one of the most vile wicked despicable and manipulative beings in the universe. Seriously if people knew who he really is they would abandon every religion on earth because he started them all. Anyone who would destroy the earth to bully mankind gets no respect in my book. The true Creator could have reduced all evil men to moon dust without harming the planet along with its countless lifeforms unlike what Zeus did when he apparently flooded the whole planet.

          • sunshine

            Whoa ok I need to know more about this….

          • Sailor Uranus

            Every major religion on earth especially the monotheistic faiths have roots in astrology and the Saturn mystery religion.

          • sunshine

            Well astrology is pretty real and I definitely believe it.

          • Sailor Uranus

            The problem is religions use this information to control the masses rather than help them. The difference between magic and witchcraft is simple. Magic is to help others whereas witchcraft seeks to control, manipulate, and dominate others.

          • Now you are seeing why I reject all religion, as you know I don’t push my views but when they come up I will support them.

          • sunshine

            I’m always interested to hear them! You know it won’t offend me and I might learn something!

          • Okay, since you are asking I will provide it: freetexthost.com/tuzt56ibi6 – also: edwardmd.wordpress.com/2013/09/18/the-real-truth-about-religion-and-its-origins – I feel like I am doing this now: lyricsmode.com/lyrics/d/deicide/bible_basher.html, lol. I blast that song and my girl HATES it. Some of it is true but he falls into the dichotomous trap that most do but I do have my doubts. Glen Benton, the lead singer, is a total money whore so he plays up the satan stuff just to sell records. He is very intelligent and I believe he knows better but is a great salesmen/liar. There is a youtube video of him being a smartass about it calling himself a miner(“mining for gold” by playing up the god vs satan crap). He is a dick but he can make some aggressive music that is appealing to me at times. Here is the song, it is 3minutes and you’ll probably hate it as much as my girl does but if you read along the lyrics you can almost understand him, lol, this one has the lyrics right beneath the video: youtube.com/watch?v=mOCjeAR4xfQ – This one here starts out with goats and backwards chanting, lol: youtube.com/watch?v=_mEH4ZTdE34 – she REALLY hates that one, lol!

          • sunshine

            I have read bits and pieces of that stuff before and I believe it’s true. My beliefs are very weird and not mainstream in the slightest but…I do believe in “God”. And “Jesus”, but more as the “Christ consciousness” which I suppose is in a way the son of God as it is “God like” but not “God” itself. If that makes sense! The sun is awesome and it is our everything so how could people not worship it? There is nothing better in this world than sitting outside in the sunshine!

            But out of all of it, you know what seems to be the most true to me? The whole Annunaki thing. Our “God” is an extraterrestrial. Because like the saying goes (I forget who said it…Heinlein maybe) “Any advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic”. Paraphrased badly I’m sure but you probably know what I’m talking about. I just have to believe that death isn’t the end, you know?

            Lol Deicide! I knew a guy who loved them, he loved death metal and so I think I have heard that before but I never did pay much attention to the actual words. It really does make you think though….

          • sunshine

            Oops forgot to say that I like to hear different theories because aren’t we all here to learn and expand our horizons? You can’t find truth if you only listen to things that fit your worldview! So I do appreciate this stuff, thanks 😀

          • I read christain, islamic, and jewish stuff also. Just because I don’t believe it as a religion doesn’t mean I cannot gain anything from it. One of the most beneficial aspects is learning how groups of people “group think” IMO.

          • Reverend Draco

            I keep my religion to myself, for the most part – waving one’s religion-penis about in public is ignorant, ill-mannered, and barbaric. . . much like waving one’s man-penis about in public.
            I’m awake enough to realize that all religions and their gods are invented by men – yes, even my own – which is why there is no real question of which one is right. . . because they’re all wrong.

          • Yep!

          • Reverend Draco

            I find it rather funny that I’m called Jew, Muslim, and Atheist. . . but nobody has ever come close to identifying my actual religion. . .

          • Yes I have seen you accused of supporting many religions which points to they do not have a clue, lol. This bit of wisdom here nicely sums it up for me:

            A Quote by Hindu Teaching

            “There are hundreds of paths up the mountain, all leading in the same direction, so it doesnt matter which path you take. The only one wasting time is the one who runs around and around the mountain, telling everyone else that their path is wrong.”

            Hindu Teaching

            I always liked that one.

          • Reverend Draco

            I’ve also hear it said, “There are about 5,000 gods being worshiped right now – but it’s ok, yours is the only right one.”

          • lol, good one!

          • You may appreciate these lyrics, or hate them, lol: lyricsmode.com/lyrics/d/deicide/bible_basher.html

          • Lillyhammer Lip

            Oh paleeze!

          • sunshine

            You’re right…but this is the end result of diversity and “multiculturalism”. We now live in a society where nobody can trust anyone, nobody has anything in common, so this is what happens. Everyone suffers, everyone loses.

          • Well… not everyone 😉

          • Lillyhammer Lip

            Be afraid. Be VERY afraid! Your left wing sympathies are showing!

          • Sailor Uranus

            Buss off you trolling buffoon.

          • Lillyhammer Lip

            Look who’s calling the kettle black! I am NOT for any radical terrorist muslim by any means. Just because he has a name that is/appears to be “muslim” doesn’t mean he is a terrorist. You see things and or read things into this conversation that isn’t there. You have tunnel vision and of course like any leftist liberal you can’t see the forest for the trees. Maybe if I need to get my “head outta the sand” perhaps you need to get your head outta Uranus!

          • Sailor Uranus

            That last sentence sounds more like something a negaverse minion would say.

          • Lillyhammer Lip

            My are we clever! Run out of other clever remarks?

      • Lillyhammer Lip

        Ah yes just stick your head in the sand. I wonder what our society would be like if all of the great inventers throughout time had never been allowed to bring their invention into play. Seems like you are afraid of something. Are you afraid of the dark? Are you afraid of turning on a light in a dark room? Like I said earlier A LITTLE COMMON SENSE goes a long ways. See if you can come up with some.

        • Sailor Uranus

          Wake up the article itself says hes Muslim and as history teaches the most untrustworthy of men are religious ones..

    • Maddog

      They should be rogue scholars like myself. Learning outside of the system and now with the internet its easier than ever to accomplish.

      • It is funny to be around college grads that are not even remotely as educated yet I have no degree. Everyone assumes I have a degree because how could I know all of this stuff without college? Sheep.

        • Maddog

          Go ahead and use the term I coined – rogue scholar.

          • That is a good one! Thanks! Many of our country’s forefathers were rogue scholars also.

          • Maddog

            Precisely, all that’s left in public schools is indoctrination into communism and the programming needed to control the sheeple. Our country is so fucked.

        • sunshine

          Probably because you read and are intellectually curious. That will take a person far in life. Most people simply don’t care to know about anything they might find unpleasant, or will contradict their worldview. You are obviously intelligent in other ways but I personally think the desire to always learn more, and expand your horizons and knowledge is the key.

          • Thank you! I think it is because of this: http://www.jci.org/articles/view/25509 – the hippocampus is responsible for learning and memory: http://psychology.about.com/od/hindex/f/hippocampus.htm. Consider this and now it really makes sense they want people to stay away, can’t have thinkers out there yearning for more knowledge so they scare you and tell you it will make you stupid but as the above is proving, the exact opposite is true. I really don’t know why I “need” to know things I just do, maybe the above explains it, sure seems plausible to me.

          • sunshine

            Wow, that’s really interesting…and it’s possible I suppose!

        • Wags71

          I love how it’s supposedly impossible how to learn things on your own.

          • Yo man, working on the vids but having trouble. Win8 vm keeps overheating my machine, I’ll figure something out.

          • Hey, got the first one done. This is win 8.1 ninite install + my picks. It is a subset of my picks, I did not include my developer tools so the file wasn’t too large just for a vm demo: https://anonfiles.com/file/e05a12f4c7918f0b7008a322838101b1 – This is a .mkv and plays on vlc player.

  • Vows of Vengeance

    OK, to me, I strongly feel our problem is law enforcement. Always feel that way. If the cops stop being so willing to arrest people and so willing to arrest us under unconstitutional laws, all this stops.

    • Smarty

      Yep. It stops INSTANTLY, which is why they are recruiting only the stupid ones these days. If the cops were of the smart variety (as in 20/plus years ago), they’d be able to think for themselves and this shit wouldn’t ever happen. Instead, they are a slave to their masters and they are too stupid to even realize it. They are creating the very sewer they will have to drink from….

      • Vows of Vengeance

        I am very glad to see others that get it.

      • Maddog

        Individuals with higher IQ’s are actually turn away from law enforcement jobs.

        • Remember the one tried to sue them for it and was denied? Lol, you can’t make this stuff up!

          • Maddog

            Yes I do and the reason is its easier to control cranial impaired sheeple.

  • YaRt

    Okay okay I don’t want to start a stampede or a panic but…

    Has anyone ever seen a movie where the bad guy used a “cell phone” to set off their gadget? (cell phone, must come from “terrorist cell”)

    • Someguy

      I didn’t even think of that… oh my god, I’m in a mall and it looks like people everywhere are trying to call their bombs on phones…
      911!! Please help!! I’m stupid and ignorant, arrest them!!

      • Reverend Draco

        I bet that would stop people from being rude bastards and jabbering into their phones in stores and restaurants.

        • You know something had to have happened and there is a reason each business owner puts a sign up to hang up your damn phone or you won’t be served.

  • D.Moore

    Thank Common Core and ignorance in our education system, the dumbing down of America starts with your children…

  • Al

    What kind of people are becoming teachers these days? They are the front line and from some of many reported stupidities, like this kid and his clock, or the boy with water gun. The second people on the list are those with no intelligence whatsoever are the police who actual arrest a kid (some as young as 7). They are the problem, why would you call the police on something like this? Am missing something? or are these people been brain washed!! I can’t seem to find a good logical explanation for this behaviour.

    • Public money, don’t want to lose funding so you just act completely irrational according to their dictates they send and the federal funds keep flowing.

    • Sailor Uranus

      Does that look like a normal clock to you?
      Case closed.

      • Reverend Draco

        Do you seem to be as frightened and ignorant as the teachers & police?
        Case closed.

      • Lillyhammer Lip

        You are messed up! Above in the conversation you said that things are not what they were 50 years ago. Well you are correct . Clocks have changed from mechanical ones into ELECTRONIC ones. So you must be stuck in time to 50 years ago (somewhere around 1965). Now you say “Does that look likje a normal clock to you?” Like I said previously grab some common sense!

        • Sailor Uranus

          It doesn’t look like any clock electronic or digital and that’s why it was reported. If he wanted to impress the science teacher a photo would suffice.

          • Reverend Draco

            Yeah, he can impress his teacher with his picture-taking skills, THAT’LL show them what he’s capable of!

          • Lillyhammer Lip

            How would you know? Have you ever been an instructor (teacher to you)? I think not. You need to do some research on electronic/digital clocks as you obviously know nothing about the subject. My military career/instructor/teacher experience gives me some expertise on electronics, so what you assume to be something that it is not doesn’t mean you are an expert. Well neither am I, but from the photo it would take a pretty warped mind to think the “device” is a bomb.

          • Sailor Uranus

            Well not everyone has had military training now have they? That said the kid should have left the clock at home.

          • Sailor Uranus

            Was it a test to see how they would respond?

    • Maddog

      liberalism is your answer

      • Reverend Draco

        He said a good logical explanation, not a batshit crazy one.

  • The kid is obviously a terrorist, a penchant for learning, building things on his own accord instead of the more common and acceptable mode of interaction, blindly and unthinkingly consuming. Any non-terrorist would have done the proper thing, a take selfie with a brand new iPhone standing next to a clock in an upscale mall and impress their teacher with that.

  • Guillotine_ready

    The system is apparently working like it has been set up to do. Children are the first and most important point of indoctrination for a new system of dependence upon the system for all decisions and protection. The people cannot be allowed to make decisions or they may decide to do away with gluttonous and psychopathic methods of harvesting labor and capital.
    If we want to make sure at least some children get a chance at a normal life we have to keep them away from a system designed to ruin their lives and make them compliant.
    The other problem is too many people are already to dumb to see things for what they are. If you point out the reality too clearly they actually act afraid of what you are saying. Sheep, and that is a kind word for what roams our country now.

    • Reverend Draco

      My 7 year old grand-daughter is smart enough to realize that I want her homeschooled – and we’ve never met because she lives in Michigan & I live in Cali.

      Ugh good question, I am so sick of people bringing up Nazi Germany and obviously not knowing a DAMN THING about it. You know, I have confronted probably a hundred idiots about that crap online, and I always ask them if they’ve read Mein Kampf. You know how many have? ZERO. It’s ridiculous.

  • Reverend Draco

    Thw adults in this demonstrate less intelligence than the 14 year old student’s shoes.

    But, hey – at least they protected everyone (except for Ahmed) from their own pig-ignorance.

    • Sailor Uranus

      That thing looks as much in common with a clock as a teaspoon is with a mosquito!

      • Reverend Draco

        How many clocks have you built from scratch this year, Doctor Faraday?

        • Sailor Uranus

          It looks more like a kit from radio shack if you ask me.

      • Maddog

        Better open that piece of crap alarm clock you purchased from Wal-Mart, it will look identical.

        • Sailor Uranus

          Don’t make light of a dangerous topic.

  • Sailor Uranus

    Lets face it doesn’t look like a normal clock at all and personally i would never bring anything into a school that looks like that. Was he trying to see if he can bring weird looking devices into the school without being caught? It seriously makes you wonder if some other agenda is at play here?

  • Maddog

    “America’s public schools, it seems, just really aren’t places for smart kids these days.” Are you kidding? The American education system is pushing “Common Core” horseshit. They have been dumbing down Americans for 40 years along with tearing down any sense of morality in order to rule over the masses.

    • Sailor Uranus

      The kid shouldn’t be charged only rebuked for bringing something into class that should have stayed at home. If he wanted to show the science teacher he could have photographed it and explained how it works.

      • Maddog

        I was building these things 40 years ago. We would purchase them as kits from Radio Shack. Then we would bring them to school for a show and tell in science class. What needs to be removed from schools and the sheeple of this country is liberalism and the libtards that conform to its communist conscripts.

        • Sailor Uranus

          If you think the liberals are bad just imagine what the right wingers would make of this. I can just see the headlines “middle eastern boy builds alarm clock of doom we need to fund the military immediately, give up all your freedoms so we can keep you safe”.

          • Maddog

            That’s why I sell Kevlar scarfs to stupid sheeple for when they float their camels here.

        • sunshine

          Have you been in a Radio Shack lately? It’s all crap, there’s no parts or stuff to fix electronics or any kind of kits to get kids into that type of stuff. All I saw was cell phones, radios (like satellite etc) and kitschy crap. Not what I remember when I was a kid being dragged in by electronics nerds. Sad stuff. You probably have to find all that stuff online now.

  • Geez, I better keep all of my raspberry Pi’s hidden! I now see that they look techie and scary to morons so I will hide them so you won’t be scared okay? Just kidding, fuck all of you idiots.

    Fuck the public education system. They want Americans to be ignorant because simple minded individuals do a damn good job taking orders.

    • Reverend Draco

      Also easier to scam money out of stupid people – have you listened to modern “music?”

      • Honey badger

        I avoid modern “music” at all cost lol. Along with most TV. But from what I can see on the dinosaur news about these “musicians” I’d rather go deaf in my good ear then listen to any of it.

        • Reverend Draco

          Gave up TV almost 5 years ago, and don’t miss it a bit. Have netflix if I want to check out for awhile & watch a movie – otherwise it’s the net or a good book.

  • Ken, Megapolis

    Does this clock keep ACCURATE time? I don’t give a fuck what it looks like. My teachers in my old school are STRIKING due to draconian measures and workloads placed on them. Then their managers (I used to call such people Headteachers) called them ‘lazy’ and ‘Irresponsible’.
    Some places still welcome science practicals and students who wish to excel can.
    Have I ever had an accident in a chemistry class?
    Yes and I was the World’s worst pain to my teachers LOL

    • BigGaySteve

      in 2015 a kid takes apart a 120VAC clock and mounts the display in a briefcase and BathHouse Barry & Zuckborg call him a genius. I have been to a moslem oil nation and agree he is a genius for a moslem just like Sotomayor is the smartest latrina in the US, but couldn’t make it into the top 20% of her high school class.

  • bozotoo

    “A potato-powered clock would have been much better,” I bet Ahmed Mohamed thought to himself later.

  • anonymous4u4me

    And these people that did this are teaching your children? Let me see you think they are responsible enough to do that when they make a disgusting decision like this? And now the question is will you continue to allow your child to be in this school with these imbeciles? Or will you get them out while they have a chance at remaining safe and sane, and home school them like you should?

            I am a tradesman, electrical contractor. I train apprentices for to test to be journeyman and like myself , Master. i try new ways and methods that profess the “better” method. If they work I adopt them if not I return to what I know works. Why is school any different? We however fall from one failure into another without any thought of first returning to what is proven and works. I wonder what my customers want me to do if I am sent someone from high school with a diploma who cannot read or write? Would they want me to let them work on their home? We have put our trust in teachers and government to educate and they have failed. When someone panics and arrests a young man who is obviously smarter than the instructor then he needs a new school that can understand his abilities.

          I agree. The whole system needs an overhaul. The teachers are only a symptom of the larger problem.

      When I was 14, it wasn’t unusual for me to give an ignorant teacher a good ass-chewing.
      Now that I think of it, it’s still not unusual for me to give an ignorant shitbird a proper reaming.

        Parents need to defend there kids from stupidity. Show them how to be a parent instead of a spineless jelly fish.

          My mother was a former Marine and a Catholic – her deference to authority, no matter how witless, caused me actual harm on more than one occasion.

          It eventually drove us to hate each other for nearly half of my life, by the time she passed.
          My dad passed when I was very young.

          I pretty much had to defend myself from stupidity.

            I guess as a former jarhead, I understand. My old man didn’t put up with crap from anyone. Don’t know if it was the farm, depression, or Omaha Beach. He died while I was stuck in the suck. Asbestos. I remember when my mom took a giant dump on my 2nd grade teacher. That was memorable. That was one thing I did learn in the suck, was what a great pair of parents I did have. Most the guys I knew in the Corps that wasn’t true.

            I did hear some stories about them nuns in Catholic schools. But that was a different time in our history.

    I it still true that the average public school teacher’s SAT is below the national average.

    It’s getting to be just pulling out your handkerchief to blow your nose someone of Authority might suspect you are drawing out a Weapon!
    This draconian Orwellian paranoia is all part of the NWO- plan.

    Anything to crush intelligence and innovation. Exceptionalism is dead. King Barry killed it.
