That explains a lot.

On. My. God.

I've seen horses put down for less.

Lets see, kilo's are how atomic bombs are measured so I guess there are 2.5 atomic bombs in that many grams.

Come on Steve, don't try to be smart

Well, I think we've found the new GOP 2016 campaign slogan.

KILLOGRANS ARE FOR COMMIES!!11!!!

Kilograms are for serious party people. Grams are for the dilettantes, everybody knows this.

Probably because there's horses that do better than this.

Holy shiat...it was even multiple choice.

Maybe they should have asked a question about kilopotatoes
 
2013-03-06 12:13:30 AM  
Honestly, when you only deal in megaDerps and gigaDerps, kilos are just a rounding error.

Reminds me of the Bible-thumpers who can't list the ten commandments while demanding they be put up in schools.

Do they fear losing their viewers if they can answer those?

Maybe let the GOP bring back literacy tests, if there's also a math test?

Nah....

According to their science textbooks the answer is "Jesus"

Or worse:

Stephen Colbert: What are the Ten Commandments?
Lynn Westmoreland: What are all of them?
SC: Yes.
LW: You want me to name them all?
SC: Yes.
LW: Uhhh.
LW: Ummmm. Don't murder. Don't lie. Don't steal. Ummmmm.
LW: I can't name them all.

Georgia Representative Lynn Westmoreland, a Congressman who's co-sponsored a bill to require the display of the Ten Commandments in the House of Reps and the Senate.

Did I mention he's a Republican?

At the very end: "my kids ask easy questions"

Why yes, I'm sure the little home schooled or church schooled snowflakes do. After all, they are probably no more cognitively active than the pet parrot locked up in the cage.

2013-03-06 01:42:52 AM  
How many Rhode Islands is that?
 
2013-03-06 02:34:14 AM  
The real answer is simplicity itself:

However many grams Jesus wants it to be.
 
2013-03-06 03:10:01 AM  
I am really more appalled at the difficulty they had with the basic multiplication. How can you survive in the world without being able to do basic math?

To preserve my sanity, I'm just going to pretend that this was from an SNL skit.

Carlson graduated cum laude from Stanford University in 1990, try and square that fact with this video.

They have to be drinking lead and mercury smoothies in the dressing room.

I don't know why people keep saying that.  Stanford doesn't award degrees cum laude.  At least it didn't while I was there...and, Carlson isn't too much older than me.  So, I doubt things had changed all that much from her time to mine.

You can graduate "with distinction" from the University or "with honors" from a particular academic department.  So, it's hard to know what is meant when it's said that she graduated "cum laude."  University distinction and departmental honors are are two different recognitions that mean two different things, they're awarded separately and they're not really equivalent to the latin honors of other schools.

2.5 kilograms is 1 million freedom pounds, duh.

It's in Wikipedia. Edit her article if it bugs you so much.

I wouldn't say it "bugs" me.  I don't give Gretchen Carlson that much thought.

It's just that it almost seems as if she's padding her resume with that claim.  If I had to guess, I'd guess she graduated with departmental honors rather than with University distinction.  "Distinction" is a pretty big deal; departmental honors, not so much.

The fact that none of them knew the answer to the second question in TFA bugs me more.  How hard is it to remember that the area of a square is the length of a side squared, which means to reverse the equation, all you need is the square root of the area.

I suck at math and I know that!
 
2013-03-06 04:41:09 AM  
Well since they are real Americans, they would have no concept of the metric system, that's for liberal drug addicts.

What sort of Commie bullshiat is this? "Reversing"? Sounds like "flip-flopping" to me!

OK, i'm gonna give them the benefit of the doubt and say that cause they're republicans they'd be against the Metric system and do their best to try and avoid it at all costs. I hardly ever come into contact with the system america uses (not even sure of the name) and i'd be damned if i could even guess the right answers in conversion questions for that system.

It's a stretch, i know.

And these are the people advocating cutting education funding and increasing defense spending, not being able to see the quality of the latter follows the quality of the former.

They're all crackheads, so they must have some rudimentary understanding of the metric system.

Hey, i wouldn't know, man. I'm just guessing from 1/2 way across the planet from the derp-event horizon over there.

You wouldn't know how to square a measurement because you're far away from the U.S.?
