East Texas 9th Grader, Ahmed “Big Bang Theory” Mohamed hopefully has the math chops for MIT

By ann summers

Too many anchor babies contributing to national educational advancement, packing heat sinks.  Kid didn’t even bring a Glock to school. In Irving Texas, it’s make a clock, go to jail.

HOUSTON — Ahmed Mohamed’s homemade alarm clock got him suspended from his suburban Dallas high school and detained and handcuffed by police officers on Monday after school officials accused him of making a fake bomb. By Wednesday, it had brought him an invitation to the White House, support from Hillary Rodham Clinton and Mark Zuckerberg, and a moment of head-spinning attention as questions arose whether he had been targeted because of his name and his religion.

As a result, a 14-year-old freshman at MacArthur High School in Irving, Tex., who is partial to tinkering, technology and NASA T-shirts and wants to go to M.I.T., found himself in a social media whirlwind that reflected the nation’s charged debates on Islam, immigration and ethnicity.

“Cool clock, Ahmed,” President Obama said on Twitter. “Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It’s what makes America great.” Mr. Obama’s staff invited Ahmed to the White House for Astronomy Night on Oct. 19, an event bringing together scientists, engineers, astronauts, teachers and students to spend a night stargazing from the South Lawn.

  1. fear and ignorance fuel the destruction of the world. Careful with the matches, there are idiots everywhere.

  2. This is making the rounds of the Internet today. I thought of this last night, but didn’t think to write it down. Hell, I am trained in explosive ordnance reconnaissance and knew it didn’t pass the smell test from the gitgo.

    I said: It’s sad they thought that kid had a bomb.

    She said: They didn’t think he had a bomb.

    I said: Yes, they thought he made a bomb and even called the police.

    She said: They just wanted to humiliate a little Muslim boy. They didn’t think he had a bomb.

    I said: Don’t be a conspiracy theorist. They might be a little prejudiced, but I’m sure they thought he had a bomb.

    She said: OK.
    But they didn’t evacuate the school, like you do when there’s a bomb.
    They didn’t call a bomb squad – like you do when there’s a bomb.
    They didn’t get as far away from him as possible, like you do when there’s a bomb.
    Then they put him and the clock in an office: not like you do when there’s a bomb
    Then they waited with him for the police to arrive, and then they put the clock in the same car as the police.

    Then they took pictures of it.

    I said: Damn…..They never thought he had a bomb.

    The Irving PD, & the School Administration will be sued.
    They are going to get to pay Ahmed’s way through Harvard or MIT. Possibly both.
    The taxpayers will foot the bill.
    They never thought he had a bomb.

  3. Mayor Beth Van Duyne is one of the reasons there are “blonde jokes.”

  4. A blonde calls her boyfriend at work.
    “Can you come home? I’m getting really frustrated with this jigsaw puzzle I bought today. None of the pieces fit together and I think it has the wrong picture.”
    He goes home to find her close to tears over the puzzle. “What’s the problem,” he asks.
    “It has a tiger on the box, but I can’t get a tiger or even find the pieces that fit together. I think I’ve been ripped off!”
    He takes a look at the box and says, “Honey, put the Frosted Flakes up in the kitchen where they belong.”

    It was a “dry run, a “false flag” and part of “Jade Helm 15”. Code name “Denali”.

  6. pete says:

    A blond says “All I can spell with my Alpha-bits are “Ooooo”.
    Her redhead friend said “Those are Cheerios”.

    I don’t know, I thought it looked like a bomb.
