Default I'm Like Harry Tasker's Boss

I want "hard data"

Not... vague recollections of where you (anyone) thinks they may or may not have read something.

We have all read - over and over - claims that we only use 10% (or less) of our brains. It is bandied about as common knowledge. Something that everyone "just knows." But NO-ONE can tell me WHERE they discovered this info-byte.

Where did you learn your 9 times tables? You can tell me. Where do you learn about the two opposing Axis in WWI? You can tell me. Where did you disect a frog? You can tell me?

Where did you learn we only use 10% of our brains? When was this "test" conducted and who conducted it? Where were their findings published? No-one can tell me.

Which raises an interesting point...

How easy is it to pass on false information as if it is true, and have everyone accept it without question?

Michael Ross

PS. Harry Tasker is a character in a movie (True Lies). Harry's boss is Charlton Heston. When Harry presented his findings to his boss, his boss said... "You're not blowing my skirt up... Harry, do you have any HARD DATA?"
