My friends at the BBC report that some hidden texts containing works by Archimedes have been discovered.
I say that those who hid them knew what they were doing.
Archimedes was a famous mathematician (that really should be an oxymoron). His contributions to humanity were:
- To use mathematics to develop weaponry
- To foist his inane ramblings on generations of oppressed school students who should have been doing something more interesting, probably behind the bikesheds.
He is also apocryphally famous for being too stupid to realise that there was too much water in his bath.
Can humanity really benefit from learning more of the theories of this fascist?
I think that he has foisted enough of his tripe on us, and his ramblings should be left to rot. What will they discover next? Lost episodes of Family Fortunes? Three volumes of “The Wit and Wisdom of Iain Duncan Smith”? Turner prize winners from 1900 to 1920? “Grateful Dead – Just the Drum Solos”?
There is enough crap in the world already, stop looking for more
