Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Revelations 6:1-8; 4 racist Horsemen of colour, each
given 1/4 or quarter of the Earth to rule (Time Cube
Value), with each quarter rotating to its own 24 hour
day - all 4 quarters rotating 4 corner Days in a common
24 hour rotating invisible, but imaginary Cubed Earth.



Thread is now changed.

Who is crazier:

Time Cube Guy vs coked out Charlie Sheen. Discuss.

    Huh, imagine that. I don't remember answering any questions like that. Maybe they just ignore people with basic intelligence.

    Well, I guess you can't expect people to care about science when they spend most of their life more worried about love or money.

    If only they know much science actually helps in both cases.

    I want to meet the people who failed to correctly answer these questions and shake them. The only answer I'm willing to accept is that they were trolling the survey.

    It's from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, what do you expect.

    Most of the surveyed people who thought astrology was a scientific fact probably came from the greater Pittsburgh area.

    The tomato genes question is just weird. I can only think that people didn't understand the question? Or maybe people really don't understand what DNA is at all.

    Just think of all the bullshit people believed in 88, though.

    no I think it just means people ain't know shit about genes or genetically modified foods so maybe they should all just shut up about it

    I seriously have to know who was in this sample pool. It can't be normal people. Normal people understand the earth's core is hot and that the planet goes around the sun once a year, right...normal people know that shit.

    How do you not understand that question?

    Do normal tomatoes have genes?

    A) Yes

    B) No

    C) Only genetically modified tomatoes have genes

    If you answered C, are you currently licking a window or breathing from your mouth?

    Besides the "antibotics" thing, that chart in the bottom left should really be a line chart instead of a bar chart, since the x-axis is a continual (i.e. time) rather than categorical variable. And the values on the x-axis should be spaced out to allow for the differing intervals of time between each measurement, otherwise it's not an accurate representation of the trend.

    This article on scientific literacy is itself failing at scientific literacy pretty hard.

    Maybe the "once a year" thing was because they asked a bunch of over-analytical people that were counting the quarter-day Leap Year throws at us?

    I hope so.

    No, that's more of a graphical representation of data thing.

    It could be a graph about ass fucking vs does it count at camp, and it would still be a bad way to display the information. That doesn't really reflect on the data itself.

    Knowing that the centre of the Earth is hot is not exactly the same as knowing Calculus

    Not many people know Calculus because it is hard and advanced. But everyfuckingone should know that the Earth has a hot core.

    does anyone remember that movie with Hilary Swank and the dude that plays Harvey Dent and they go into the earth's core to nuke it and "jumpstart" it to restore earth's electromagnetic field

    I LOVED THAT MOVIE

    it had so much ridiculous fakescience in it that it was AWESOME
