But today we learn from the LA Times that a new poll found:
27% identified "gigabyte" as an insect commonly found in South America. A gigabyte is a measurement unit for the storage capacity of an electronic device.(Amongst other things.)
18% identified "Blu-ray" as a marine animal. It is a disc format typically used to store high-definition videos. 15% said they believed "software" is comfortable clothing. Software is a general term for computer programs.
This is according to a survey by Vouchercloud.net whom I had not heard of until now, and that may well be the point.
This seemed less likely to me, so I polled everybody who's awake at the moment in my house (one of the geckos, three hundred fifteen crickets and me) and asked them what they thought. The results of my sci-o-tiffic poll are as follows:
When asked dumb questions on the internet, 104% of respondents make shit up for the lulz.Also, a majority wanted another carrot as they're feeling a bit thirsty tonight, and a vocal minority said he fancied a handful of crickets. (Actually he said, "Gecko! Gecko!" but I think that means he wants crickets.)
A gigabyte, yesterday*
