I have been reading rather thick tomes of physics since a young age. I suppose if you added them all up they would probably come close to the number of books on the subject that someone that wanted to get a degree in the subject might digest. In fact I suspect I have read enough of these to come closer to a Master’s, but that’s sort of beside the point, because I doubt the books I picked would form part of any specific curriculum. The point is that all that physics has served me well in many other spheres of life. For one, it fit very well with my actual choice of subject in tertiary education, which was civil engineering, but perhaps less obviously, it has served me well in practically every job I have ever done.

As some of you know, I will have another birthday in one week. Unless you are going to buy a LOT of my books, the other gift you could give me that would be even cooler (and that I promise you will make you feel great too) is to support my wish to sponsor 10 girls’ education for a year.
As regular readers will know, I love women. So wanting to improve their lot in a general sense is not a difficult idea to come to grips with. It has also been shown by many studies that educating girls in a region is the surest way to improve the quality of life for everyone living there.
Again, regular readers will know my non-PC attitude to certain topics, and possibly be familiar with my contention that encouraging women to express their natural talents and advantages; particularly in the context of social dynamics, at which they are far better than men. This is a skill set that has been honed by 2 million years of survival pressure that no amount of modern feminism will ever be able to compete with. Trying to make women into copies of men is a no-win situation for everyone, as is the general trend to feminise men. What is required is an intelligent approach that takes into context not just social structures that are often outdated, or worse, completely manufactured for political or economic gain, but also our differing physiologies and neurologies.
There is not a single neuroscientist that I am aware of that states men and women are the same. We are not. Neither is better than the other, but they are different, and for too long, the natural skills at which women excel when compared to men have been largely ignored. A strong sense of self-confidence is pivotal for a young girl, as they are more susceptible to social pressures than boys in general, furthermore, a confident woman is more likely to use her natural abilities rather than try to play catch-up with a male oriented way of doing everything from business to city landscaping.
If all of the above was too ‘deep’ for you then just go with this:
Besides a smoking hot body, the best thing a woman can have to become very attractive, is a smoking hot brain.
Help me make today’s little girls become tomorrow’s awesome women.
Go here to donate. It really does not matter how much you give, even 1$ will be greatly appreciated.
I would also really love it if you copy this link (right click on it and select copy link) and post it to your facebook, twitter or blog pages. Please help me raise the modest sum of $2,500 and help 10 girls for another year of education.
