What other words could RK use to describe price=clown and company's dumb as rocks chatter about that Kizil Ayak chuval we have posted in the "MAD or just Ersari Bershir" thread in the Pictures for Discussion Thread here on RugKazbah.com.
The rug challenged attendees of that rug-numbskull Virginia Commonwealth University professor steev price=clown's website wouldn't know a Kizil Ayak from a dish-towel with a Turkmen design printed on it, nor would their leader price=clown himself.
RK has seen enough their dopey opinions and we had a good laugh over the following 2 posts, which are the most recent additions, the first by sue zimmerman, a woman who believes after a few years of corresponding with the clowns of price's website she is able to understand the hidden mysteries of oriental carpets and the second by Virginia Commonwealth University's steve price the rug idiot.
Hi Winston(the owner of the Kizil Ayak chuval, ed),
Apparently, if your chuval were to lap dance for the originator of the word pistiche it may surprisingly age it 25 years. No one would probably be surprised at that. Yawn. Sue
I've seen the thread to which you refer, a conversation between a guru and his worshipful student. The student explains his objections to C-14 rug dating. The method isn't scientific, true science (in his world) consists of universal truths like those of elementary trigonometry. The guru explains that C-14 dating of rugs is unreliable because it gives only relative dates and requires calibration standard rugs. I suspect that he's confused C-14 dating with thermoluminescence dating of things like terracotta, which is usually calibrated by C-14 analysis of organic inclusions in objects from the same location.
The absurd notion that the guru could date Windsor's piece to the nearest quarter century if he had the opportunity to handle it is actually less ridiculous than their understanding of science. Still, pretty ridiculous.
I recall somebody saying something in this thread about morons with computers. Wish I could remember it.
Ms. zimmerman can't even copy the correct spelling of the word - pastiche. We are not surprised as the rest of her cockamamie spiels are equally stupid. By the way, we are sure no-one would ask sue to give them a lap dance, needless to say request her consultation on anything other than making cupcakes from a Betty Crocker mix.
Like the rest of professor clowns fools, ms zimmerman’s overactive imagination and spare time would be far better spent pulling the hairs out of her nose than commenting about old oriental rugs.
And speaking of pulling hairs, professor clown might also benefit from some serious mirror gazing.
Turko-idiots all, and their belief david reuben is anything other than a mediocre rug dealer, who's often nonsensical ideas about Turkmen weaving are not much more significant than the best of the amateurish wordage contained on price=clown's website, is just another sign of how little they know.
Like many others, reuben is a poser whose ideas and opinions are as unfounded and ridiculous as those often advanced by price=clown and many others.
Go see for yourselves, read price=clown's threads and links to reuben's website. Have a good laugh, we did.
