You'd be surprised...

Postby OneLoveBoomer » Wed May 21, 2008 9:17 pm

...how many people do not know the answer to this question:

"How many stars are in the solar system?"

I have been finding this lately. I think it has a little to do with the fact that we are brought up thinking that the sun is one thing and that stars are another. Then in like the third grade they clue us in. I have been finding that people seem to think that we're surrounded by stars ... like in between planets, etc. etc. :-?

You mean in our solar system?

Did you grow up thinking that ours was the only solar system or something?

"the solar system" most certainly refers to ours. "A given" or "a" solar system would refer to any given generic solar system.

Other simple things tend to be overlooked -- I still can't believe this video:

I mean, the AUDIENCE got it wrong too. Or at least a large amount of em did.

EDIT: Oooh. my 3000th post :-D
