Study Finds 1 in 10 Americans Thinks HTML is a Sexually Transmitted Disease

Post by S7 Sticky on Thu Mar 06, 2014 11:49 pm

just LOL how stupid people are


Most people don’t have the same in depth knowledge of computers and technology as people that read this website, but a survey sponsored by Vouchercloud, found 11 percent of Americans think HTML is a sexually transmitted disease and 42 percent though a motherboard is a deck on a cruise ship.

In addition to the false belief that HTML, the Internet’s basic coding language, is actually an STD, the survey contains plenty of other amusing fodder, including:

  • 27 percent of respondents incorrectly identified a “gigabyte” as “an insect commonly found in South America.”


  • 18 percent mistakenly believed Blu-ray was some sort of marine animal.


  • 13 percent thought an MP3 was one of the robots in “Star Wars.”


  • 12 percent thought USB was the acronym for a country in Europe.

LOL honestly not that surprised. Ever watch the Jay Leno thing when he asked people random questions on the street? It's amazing how absent minded people can be.

Sounds more like the internet decided it'd be funny to make ridiculous answers to a survey than actual data.
