    The 'proof' is:

    a, In German.
    b, From a ****ing magazine which no one has ever heard of.
    c, from an author whose credentials are not mentioned. its just a name.

    That is not proof. That is bull ****.

    Ah bless, learn to use Chrome which auto translates.
    It is also amazing how if you can't read it you have come to those conclusions because:
    - the research was done by a creditable Professor and the paper was published :rolleyes:

    Some credible professors also say that Global warming is a myth and that 9/11 was an inside job.

    ....no they don't. Those are professors who got their degree from the internet and have never had anything published, unlike the prof. in question.:rolleyes:

    This has what to do with the question at hand again?
    I'm just displaying the lack of general knowledge that you, a guy, possess outside of world war two and 9/11.

    It would seem your general knowledge is rather specific.

    It is true that this is not strictly a proof in a mathematical sense. It is what may be called empirical evidence, conditional on a set of factors (such as samples etc.).

    It is, however, not bull****. Bull**** is difficult to write on, so the authors chose paper instead. So, strictly speaking its written words on paper. Let me shed some light on your points:

    a. German is a nice language. It is not the fault of Germany's researcher that the so-highly praised UK institutions can't come up with interesting research in education (other than "how can we change the syllabus so that the schools costs even less here"). The book itself can be bought here: http://www.amazon.de/Allgemeinbildun.../dp/3531172182

    b. The Spiegel is the German counterpart to the Guardian. Calling this a "***ing" magazine does not necessarily contribute to your reputation. If you have never heard of it before, how can you say that this is a "***ing magazine no one has ever heard of before"?

    c. The author of the article is a journalist. If you follow the link above, you can actually look into the book and you will see, unsurprisingly, that there is a whole bunch of authors of different chapters of the book who made the actual work. Please feel free to google them and verify their credentials. I sincerely doubt that these can in any way be considered of low quality.

    You're right, I guess England's population doesn't have any issues with mental health. I apologise for wanting to do something useful with my life.

    Besides, your responses haven't really addressed anything I've said, so excuse me if I don't hold much respect for you.

    Jimbo, this whole thread makes you look very thick.

    As you seem to like geographical blunders as proof of people's stupidity, I would like to point out that somewhere in the middle of this thread you referred to Alaska as a country :eek:

    I listed a series of provinces/states and countries. If it came across as anything else then it was probably poor grammar on my part

    Last time I checked only psychiatrist can help and dish out medicine, where as you would merely sit, listen, and read books.
    Either way, no need to edit you sig over it.

    Yet again, someone lacking the ability to get to the bottom line of a post. Now rather then blurting out more garbage, care to show me some proof to discredit the evidence I provided? ........thought not.:holmes:

    Oh, I'm sorry but is it just me or if someone knows nothing, then they tend to be very boring. Now lets also consider that we have to work and exists with these women, and even possibly marry, live, and have children with this person. So not only are you stuck with someone who is as interesting as a brick wall, they are almost guaranteed to raise your child to be the next generation of guests for Jeremy Kyle and the dole line.

    So yes, people knowing jack **** is going to be a big problem.

    You listed a few countries + Alaska and implied that they were all countries. It's either bad geography or poor writing skills. Both of these point to thickness.

    some girls I knew did not know where Austria, Alaska, Vietnam, Greece or pretty much any country was

    I agree with you here, but it's a shame you don't seem to recognise your own lack of knowledge and intelligence.

    You can't argue coherently, haven't shown any sign of real intelligence or knowledge, yet you have an overinflated sense of your own abilities. This is quite an irritating combination.

    Are you at university? Just curious, as you haven't put any info in your signature.
