From SciencePunk via Bad Astronomy:Can you spot the mistake (it took me about 3 seconds). This is from a school that offers engineering courses. Later,
John went insane today
You mean that those gears couldn't move? That's the first thing I noticed, and I've never had a enginering course (unless you count all the physics.)
I mean they couldn't rotate when making a triangle like that, not because there are no parts to rotate them.
Best guess: it's probably a piece of clip-art that someone thought "looked impressive" or "cool" or some such. Chances are that no one of a scientific bent even looked at the thing before it got put up.... things like this are probably why so many things get caught up in co many committees ... as this is what happens when they don't.
That boy's crazy. Put him in one of them crazy-buckets.
