Why did 31% of people get more than half of this wrong? If this was a test worth a 100% grade, 63% of people would have failed. That is atrocious.
I got all of them right.
How do people not know Nitrogen is the most common gas in the atmosphere. Seriously, even college grads only got it right 31% of the time.
Sure, we "breathe" oxygen, but that only means we process oxygen through our blood, not that we don't breathe in nitrogen and hydrogen either. Nitrogen is the reason why you can't fly in an airplane and scuba dive within 24 hours of each other.
But really this isn't a test about how stupid people are. Rather how terrible the American science education is.
my best guess is that nitrogen is mainly inert as a gas around us and doesn't do much unless its hit by lightning or put through the haber process, and even then its put into solid form
I knew that nitrogen was the most abundant gas in sixth grade, and the majority of collage graduates don't know it. Only 48% of people said false to: lasers are made by focusing sound waves. WTF?!?!?!?!?!??!? HAVE YOU NEVER SEEN A FREAKING LASER POINTER?!?!
maybe they are thinking of scifi lasers
to be honest, I am surprised more people didn't get the chemical reaction question wrong, I had to think about that
yeah i got the chemical reaction question wrong wanna fight about it
One out of one
Science is one amazing piece of shit that makes you want to explore more about the framework each time. Haha.
That's a very easy test.

Also, how the fuck could only 58% of college graduates get the laser question wrong? I can understand the nitrogen mistake, but seriously, LASERS being made from SOUND WAVES? Come on people.
It does bring up an interesting argument. Making sound conversion to light energy commercial.
Maybe they were thinking of sonic screwdrivers.
or maybe i have overly analytical mind that makes strange connections
