Are You Stupid?

March 20, 2012

I was browsing aimlessly and found an interesting article about how stupid American adults are.

According to the national survey commissioned (3 years ago) by the California Academy of Sciences:

  • Only 53% of adults know how long it takes for the Earth to revolve around the Sun.
  • Only 59% of adults know that the earliest humans and dinosaurs did not live at the same time.
  • Only 47% of adults can roughly approximate the percent of the Earth’s surface that is covered with water.
  • Only 21% of adults answered all three questions correctly.

I’m encouraged by this. I truly thought way more than half of adults were stupid.

“Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.” – Albert Einstein

“If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write things worth reading or do things worth writing.” ~Benjamin Franklin

Either is good. I’m gonna try both.
