Should the average person care about science and the discoveries that scientists makes?
Yes, the “problem” is that the average person for understable reasons, do not understand what impact science has on their life. For the past 150 years our view of the universe has drastically changed, humankind has uncovered many laws of nature that explains phenomenons, that were unknown before.
Technologically we have changed society drastically even over the past 50 years, especially with the invention of computers and networking, which enables me to write this blog entry.
Supporting science helps us discover new ways of thinking, that in the end can help society.
Decreasing funding for universities can in worst case halt the progress of a nation, specializing is another thing.
Should we be better at telling the public about the latest scientific discoveries?
Yes, numerous times I have seen papers misquoted or twisted to fit an agenda of a newspaper or a private blogger.
I am not claiming to be any kind of expert in any scientific field, but if I read a story in a newspaper about a scientific discovery, I try and get to the original papers and reading their conclusions.
As the illustration belows demonstrates, findings can be twisted and scare the public.
I feel like I have been hit in the face with a lemon wrapped around a gold bar.
2 months ago I thought I knew where my life was heading.
Now… I am single with a child and got no place to live. This is surely a fucked up situation.
I found out today that I would at best get a new place to live at 3 months from now. At best!
Fuck my life!
All I can do is take life one step at the time and in the long run it will be great.
Put my chin up high and whistle like a mad man. Always look at the fucking bright side of your fucked life.
Started in school again and it is nice to get my brain working again. Also I can meet new people. I like the teachers. My chemistry teacher within the first 2 hours told us about how he had made explosives and nerve gas for the military and some by accident. He is a former explosives expert. Jolly fun.
Geography teacher, well not much to say. He couldn’t find Hungary.
Social Studies, same teacher I had last time, she is awesome.
But no more awesome than the almight Eva, the english teacher from a place where grammar and pronounciation rules.
I am looking forward to this year.
Also because I want a new place so I can get out of this fucked part of my life.
