Tests prove it: You're dumber than a quark


  1. I was doing research on science literacy and came across a test from the National Science Foundation. It had a bunch of questions like these:

    ● Does the Sun go around the Earth or does the Earth go around the Sun?

    ● Radioactive milk can be made safe by boiling it. (True/False)

    ● Which is smaller, an electron or an atom?

    Well I took their test and and got 60% right, which is nearly half. That made me feel smart, so I went looking for another test in hopes that I would feel even smarter.

    Unfortunately, I found one:

    Cracking open this new test, I was like: HUH? I thought this was supposed to be about science! So what's with all the nonsense words?

    Gluons?
    Dwarf Stars?
    Telomeres?

    Dude . . . whuddafuq?? This is science? How come nobody told me?

    What a nightmare! It was like I was back in high school, flunking out of Geonometry all over again.

       

    God damn you, Alfred Einstein!

  2. You didn't pass this? Everybody knows Gluons are sparkles 8 year girls put on their clothes, Dwarf Stars are the best plyers in Little League and Telo Meres is a linebacker at the UW.
