I am eighty-six years old and realize I have never known a great deal about science. When I was in high school I enrolled in a biology class. The first day of class we were informed that our first project would be to dissect a frog. I immediately quit the class and enrolled in a geology course. There was no way I was going to cut open what was once a living creature! NO! NO WAY!
What I have learned about science has come mostly in my later years from watching public television. It wasn't until my 75th year that I learned that the "power grid" wasn't my...crotch!
