Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that's taken over our lives.
We live in questioning times.
Some say the basis of the questioning is questionable, but there's little doubt that the very fundamentals of our existence -- democracy, for example -- are now subject to conspiracy theories believed by many.
Take the traditional notion that the world is spherical.
And now a YouGov survey of 8,215 American adults comes out that offers troubling results.
The numbers appear to show that only 84 percent of Americans have always believed the Earth is round and had no doubts about it.
Worse, perhaps, is that a mere 66 percent of 18- to 24-year-olds have always believed the world is round. Does this really mean that 34 percent have their doubts?
Well, 16 percent chose the "Other/Not sure" box. Only 2 percent say they've always thought the world is flat and another 2 percent responded that while they've always thought it flat, some doubts have crept in of late.
It's always wise to be a touch skeptical about such surveys.
If you're responding to one, there's surely a temptation to offer answers that amuse you, especially if it's a subject that doesn't actually interest you or you're being presented with questions that you find obvious or ridiculous.
