Tales of Staggering Idiocy!

The Arch-Conspirator points out some amazingly gobsmacking ignorance. Here's a taste:

Slade said that she called several of her colleagues to see how they calculate a two-thirds vote, and the answer varied widely.
"The answer varied widely." Because it's such an arcane branch of mathematics, yo, like imaginary numbers.

I can only hope that at some point someone thought to call MIT with this one, if only to give the person on the other end of the phone a story they'll be telling at parties for the rest of their lives.
