Update: Poe’s Law.
Back in middle school science classes, when we finished all our work, we were allowed to read through my teacher’s old issues of Popular Science magazine. During this time I once heard an otherwise rather thick, snobby, and not particularly pleasant girl say the most truthful thing…
Popular Science is an oxymoron.
I then also realised that Scientific American is also an oxymoron.
I now have evidence for this…
Kids, study hard in science. If for nothing else so that you don’t fail like this and make the rest of your fellow humans feel embarassed that you’re a member of our species.
I know, I know. This is only one example of stupidity. I wouldn’t doubt that the vast majority of people understand daylight savings time.
But at the same time I’m open to being surprised… although I wouldn’t be surprised at all if 30%, 50%, even 75% of Americans don’t understand daylight savings time and think this way.
I would say that somebody should do some research, but the last time somebody suggested that the media blared that he was anti-Harry Potter.
