Will and Jaden Smith
 Can't say I'm sorry that After Earth, the movie conceived by Will Smith for his precocious son Jaden to star in, has crashed and burned. 
  I recently had to listen to the unctuous Smiths, who fly around in a private jet,  holding forth at great lengths on the evils of pollution and the need to care for the environment. The same evening, at an outdoor pool party, the guests were subjected to Jaden Smith's noisy and grating attempts at rapping when he hogged the microphone for most of the night. 
 Smith senior insists he is not a Scientologist but gives money to groups affiliated with Scientology and set up a private elementary school that uses teaching methods formulated by L. Ron Hubbard. He claims not to be religious, explaining in a bizarre interview with The Guardian that his real worldview is all about "patterns"
  He said, talking a form of gibberish: "I'm a student of patterns. At heart, I'm a physicist. I look at everything in my life as trying to find the single equation, the theory of everything."
   Not surprisingly, he claims that not everyone understands him. "You know, the forum of media that we're in can't really handle the complexity of things that we say all the time," he says.
  Jaden Smith deserves some tolerance  since he's only 14 and has been raised by Will Smith. But it ought to be noted that his contributions to the emerging Smith theory of everything are in many ways more mindwarping than his father's.
    Jaden: I think that there is that special equation for everything, but I don't think our mathematics have evolved enough for us to even – I think there's, like, a whole new mathematics that we'd have to learn to get that equation.
   Will: I agree with that.
    Jaden: It's beyond mathematical. It's, like, multidimensional mathematical, if you can sort of understand what I'm saying.
    I don't think anybody can. And That's enough nonsense for this blog.
