Did you know?

In a 2014 survey, 7% of American adults believed that chocolate milk comes from brown cows,

whereas almost a half just didn’t know where it came from.

  1. Sadly there are dim-wits in every society and culture across the globe. It’s rather embarrassing to note that my fellow country men (women) would be so twit-ish, but given who they elected last time for President, it’s less startling. Now it shall be noted in the annals of this comment that I am in NEITHER group. 😆

    1. I’m sure the nationality is co-incidental. Not so long ago here there was a programme on tv interviewing people about the effects of climate change. “I don’t mind if the earth does warm up a bit, I sell air conditioners”. 🙄

  2. Often when teaching a new topic in my science class I practiced the K W L process of asking kids what they already knew about a topic. It was often shicking what they they though they KNEW. You accept all answers and they eliminate the incorrect information before beginning. The thought that some might believe chocolate milk come from brown cows is not a shocker to me.
    That being said, you probably don’t want to know what some kids explained what they knew about reproduction as 6th and 7th graders. Oh My!

    1. yup. idiots everywhere, the only problem is, they vote. The trouble is, though, otherwise intelligent politicians will pander to the whims of these people in order to get their votes. (Although in Trump’s case I’m not sure there is an “otherwise intelligent” dimension. It’s kinda like electing Homer Simpson as president.) But you know, all these politicians who will tell you that everything is the fault of X, and real life is way more complicated. I was already told during lockdown that the reason we got covid so badly was the immigrants.
