Ah, too slow! And you call us morons...the answer was fish by the way.
A bluefish to be exact, I believe?

I don't know. It could be a jellyfish for all I know. I seriously doubt Dr. Seuss's mathematical theories.

I'll bump this thread.

Recently, just over the past few months, I keep running across people - usually Christian or Muslim fundamentalists who seem sincere in their claims that the earth is flat. They've thought some things out, to come up with some alternative explanation for phenomenon - best understood with a spherical earth.

Really!?!? Has science education pushed us back into the middle ages?

Another scenario for the end of civilization: Willful ignorance takes hold, destroying all scientific education, everywhere. Within a couple of generations, this would have the effect of eliminating all scientific breakthroughs over the past 2500 years or so. Books would be burned, electronic media destroyed. Eventually, that too would be a moot point, as there would be no way to read them. Literacy, which has been decreasing in recent decades, would again become very rare. As devices break down and products get used, there is no ability to repair or replace them. This would effectively put us back into the bronze age or perhaps the late stone age.
