    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.

    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.

    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?!?!

    to be honest, I am surprised more people didn't get the chemical reaction question wrong, I had to think about that

    Chemical reaction is easy, it just means that the thing actually changed molecularly. Sugar dissolved water is not a new substance, just a combined one. :3 You can still filter out the sugar from the water.

    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.

    Only one I got wrong. Some of us never took a chemistry course in high school and went to Catholic school prior to that so... you can imagine how utterly amazing the science education was.

    But really this isn't a test about how stupid people are. Rather how terrible the American science education is.

    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.

    i made 100%... the whole test was easy. maybe we're a group of awesome people. come to think of it, pokemon and biology go kinda hand and hand. if you like animals, biology tells you some cool stuff about them... with the help of science.

    if you like animals, than you might like pokemon too. and if you like biology and like pokemon, you may have had fantasized how pokemon would exist in a real world.

    also, biology is the "gateway drug" to the rest of science stuff. photosynthesis and genetics got me into chemistry. the growth of cells and muscle got me into a bit of physics.
