A "Science" Quiz that Blows It

LoL! Even the author(s) of the science quiz missed a couple questions:

1. The center of the Earth is very hot. True or false?


2. The continents have been moving their location for millions of years and will continue to move. True or false?

True that they have been moving. No one knows for how long they have been moving.

3. Does the Earth go around the sun, or does the sun go around the Earth?

The earth goes around the sun more than the sun goes around the earth.

4. All radioactivity is man-made. True or false?


5. Electrons are smaller than atoms. True or false?


6. Lasers work by focusing sound waves. True or false?

false- Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (fixed for Jerad)

7. The universe began with a huge explosion. True or false?

false- the big bang was a derogatory term. The event was neither big nor did it go bang. There wasn't any explosion.

8. It's the father's gene that decides whether the baby is a boy or girl. True or false?

false- it is the father's X and Y CHROMOSOME, not gene, that DETERMINES the sex

9. Antibiotics kill viruses as well as bacteria. True or false?


10. Human beings, as we know them today, developed from earlier species of animals. True or false?

It depends on what you mean by "earlier species of animal". If that is still a human then true. If that isn't a human, then false

"They" say the answers are:

Answers (% who got it correct):
1. True (84%); 2. True (83%); 3. Earth around the sun (74%); 4. False (72%); 5. True (53%); 6. False( 47%); 7. True; (39%); 8. True (63%); 9. False (51%); 10. True (48%)

Oops, both 7 & 8 are FALSE

    LASER - light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation.

  • At 6:49 AM, Blogger Joe G said…

    What's the difference between that and what I said? Please be specific.

  • At 2:02 AM, Blogger Unknown said…

    How can you stimulate emitted rays?

    Lasers work by stimulating emission of particular kinds of radiation.

    Masers are similar devices and have a similar definition.

    Look it up. The rest of the planet uses the definition I wrote NOT yours.

  • At 7:05 AM, Blogger Joe G said…

    How can you stimulate emitted rays?

    The same way you have stimulated emission of radiation.

    The words I used = the words you used. Or do you not understand English?

    Look, there isn't asny difference between what you said and what I said.

    Rays= radiation. When people are sunbathing they don't say "I am getting some radiation" they say "I am catching some rays"

    Emissions are something that is emitted.

    And stimulations vs stimuuated, again more of the same.

    So what is your problem?

    Looks like Joe blew* it

    *very obvious jokes ahead.

  • At 11:33 AM, Blogger Joe G said…

    Yes Richie, YOU are an obvious joke.

    Looks like English is not Richie's language. Strange that ignorant assholes think that their ignorance means something.

  • At 11:34 AM, Blogger Rich Hughes said…

    Oh if only I had YOUR command of English, Joe!

  • At 11:37 AM, Blogger Joe G said…

    If you had my command of the englich language then you would have known that what I said is no different from what "Unknown" posted. But you didn't and now you are spewing your ignorance.

  • At 2:14 AM, Blogger Unknown said…

    You said: stimulation of emitted rays meaning you want to stimulate them after they are emitted. How do you do that?

    You can't just substitute words because YOU THINK they mean the same thing. Take some physics courses before you pretend to understand it. AND bother to look stuff up. Can you find anyone else who uses your wordage? Nope. I wonder why?

  • At 2:24 AM, Blogger Unknown said…

    What's particularly funny is that you can not admit you made a mistake. You said what you thought LASER stood for, you were wrong and now you are desperately trying to cast aspersions on others who do know the correct definition. Because you're not mature enough to admit you screwed up.

    Your contempt for real knowledge is bolstered by your proud ignorance and assumption that you're always right.

  • At 6:50 AM, Blogger Joe G said…

    Whatever Jerad. I said it from memory and it isn't that far off. But I know why you would want to make a big deal out of my missing two letters.

    You are just a pathetic little imp.

  • At 7:17 AM, Blogger Joe G said…

    OK Jerad I changed my OP to say stimulated. Thanks for the correction. I guess you have found something that you can do- be my spellchecker.

  • At 8:55 AM, Blogger Joe G said…

    And Jerad, what I posted is NOT a definition. I made a spelling error and you made a category error.

  • At 12:18 PM, Blogger Unknown said…

    It's not "stimulation of emitted rays" it's "stimulated emission of radiation".

    You can't stimulate emitted rays.

    You CAN stimulate emission of radiation, you can provoke it to occur.

  • At 12:23 PM, Blogger Joe G said…

    LoL! I fucked up the edit

    Thank spellchecker but you are a little slow

  • At 12:29 PM, Blogger Joe G said…

    The reason I don't like the word "radiation" is that people almost automatically associate that word with the radioactive type of radiation. That is why I use "ray". If x-ray can get away with it.

    But anyway I chaged it to the proper terminology

  • At 12:33 PM, Blogger Joe G said…

    Lasers work by stimulating emission of particular kinds of radiation.

    But that is the same as what I said. You should have said:

    Lasers work by stimulated emission of particular kinds of radiation.

  • At 4:27 PM, Blogger Unknown said…

    It's correct now so end of discussion I think.

  • At 4:40 PM, Blogger Joe G said…

    Unless you have any other points of minutia to argue.
