To the ‘US Adults Fail Basic Science Literacy’ … that’s been coming a long long while… math and science is so under-appreciated here.
I hate when people (especially high schoolers) actually believe equations will solve themselves. -_- Personally, I think up to uni calc II, physics II, chem II, and maybe bio should be within the standard we call “common knowledge” … it’s not like any of it is new ^^
Yes, I guess the title should have been “continue to fail” 😛
Ask not what you can do to an equation, ask what an equation can do to you 😛
Yes, those are good basics 🙂
I like the new weekly feature. I particularly liked A Picture Is Worth 1000 Votes since I’ve always contended that people’s looks play a great influence on political elections.
Glad you like it 🙂
Yes, looks influence elections. Also other physical characteristics may play a role.
I really want to see that good nazi film. It looks great!
Yes, it is also on my watch list 🙂
