From the Guardian: scientists and non-scientists attempt to answer basic science questions. Example:
Q: Roughly how old is the earth?
A: Oh blimey. Well, I know that human beings have been going for about a million and a half years, so … I’m just grasping here. Something like 60 billion years or something like that, but that’s a grasp. I’m not a physical scientist and it shows. I’m probably not scientifically literate.
That answer was from a professor of neuropharmacology. (I’m not good with numbers either, so I’ll shut up now.)
