Go to: Why smart people are stupid

Comment 23 by QuestioningKat :

I'm waiting for someone to try explain why stupid people are actually smart.

lol

...is about a millimetre askew....Perkin-Elmer ignored warnings ...

To be accurate within less than a millimeter...this is a pretty high standard. How many people can do this?

1mm is a chasm in the optics world, but I know very little about this NASA error.

I like the topic but not the sadness I now feel at being implied stupid, although I cheated as much of this has been covered in Dan Ariely's books which I think are brilliant.

Comment 6 by papa lazaru :

What would be the point? We can't even keep the current wildlife alive.

Perhaps this technology can be used to save the animals we will inevitably force into extinction in the next few decades? I personally think it can be achieved, but since most animals are dying out due to habitat loss it does beg the question of where they would survive once 'saved'. But for other creatures...I am all for it, since prevention seems to be lost on the majority of the world.

Sinister Weasel, I believe the laser was a U.S. invention.

Well once human history has been re-written by our glorious future overlord's, I won't need to make this apology for not reading properly. God bless china, from all of the God's...or possibly aliens returning again to fly about a bit and build big stone buildings.

A good list, I would add the laser as a scientific discovery of significant importance too, although I am certain we will find many more incredible uses in the next 60 years. The laser really has connected the world like never before with fibre optics, the medical applications are incredible and the research benefits are seemingly endless. It is a good time to be alive, I hope the future generations say the same.

""But he does not love your sin. And homosexuality is the most tolerated, petted, pampered sin in the United States of America."

I would personally give that crown to obesity.

I think I would be a fundamentalist, but crikey do I love sodomy
