1 in 10 Americans think HTML is an STD

If you’re talking tech with Americans, you may want to avoid using any jargon.

Sweet baby Jesus, this is scary and hilarious.

    Well, the racist comments on this article, which seem to be acceptable on latimes (?), are even scarier…

    1 in 10 Americans being this stupid seems low.

    The other way of saying this is that 9 out of 10 Americans know what HTML is. That is a really large number. It’s almost impossible to get 10 out of 10 people to answer a question the same way. You can ask, “who loves ice cream?” and only 9 out of 10 will say yes.

      Why would anyone say “yes” to “Who loves ice cream”?

    As long as 1 in 10 Americans think that STD is a programming language, that’s OK.
