    That "study" used multiple choice questions. It's less a measure of how many people actually know the terms than a way for the company to get some amusing answers to send out in a press release and promote itself.


    Such a large percentage of people couldn't be wrong in such a specific way otherwise - 27% of people thinking a gigabyte is an insect commonly found in South America my arse.

    Pretty sure a high number of Britains wouldn't know what HTML is either.

    Oops. Sorry - didn't look at it really, just thought it was an amusing headline. Someone here told me about these fake stories before, which -as you say- are basically marketing.

    1 in 10 really isn't that bad anyway. It's not like HTML is all that useful to most people.

    A more measured headline would be "1 in 10 people don't know what HTML is", which really isn't interesting at all.

    Republicans in the US Senate have blocked a Democratic bill aimed at closing the gap between what men and women are paid.

    This is pretty dodgy. Serves only to increase the corrupting power of wealth in US politics.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    So they went down after the law was passed, or am I missing something?

    Look at the y-axis. It is the reverse of the usual.

    Tennessee has passeda law making buses illegal.

    Senate Bill 2243 forbids “constructing, maintaining or operating any bus rapid transit system.”
    A pair of billionaire brothers who made their money in the oil industry founded a group called "Americans for Prosperity" to lobby for the ban, as is American democracy.

    P.S. Some other states prohibit public funded transport. I get that distances and demographics are different, but what? Incredible.

    It's not even that unprecedented. City planners are often nudged into making distances between residential and commercial places awkward enough to ensure public transport won't really be available. The nearest bus to take me to Walmart is actually farther away than Walmart itself is.

    The House and Senate in this state are trying to give Florida and Arizona a run for their money in the utter fucking stupidity stakes. While this Senate bill is dumb the House likes to pass bills which are blatantly unconstitutional.

    Cunts like the Kochs are only making matters much worse. At least the Supreme Court is doing its best to keep democracy even and fair.

    /can't wait for Ginsberg or Bryers to retire while Obama is in power.

    Are they actually making buses illegal, or just the specific Bus Rapid Transport system that had been proposed in the article?

    I don't know much about the issue really, but after reading a bit further, the opponents' objections to the Amp project don't seem inherently unreasonable.

    Senate Bill 2243 forbids “constructing, maintaining or operating any bus rapid transit system.”
    So I guess it comes down to what your definition of a bus rapid transit system is. I'd say it was intended as that specific product though.

    I wouldn't have been surprised if there actually was a drop in murders, as with the "stand your ground" law more killings would be ruled self-defence and not murder.
