Scientific Idiocy of the Populace

The University of Florida published a study recently indicating that microwaving sponges would kill common bacteria. The news media and general public, however, largely failed to note that the sponges had to be wet.

The home of the Gators has received a bunch of complaints from irate…uhm, “scientific-minded members of the public” who managed to destroy sponges, stink up their houses, and damage their microwaves — after sticking dry sponges in the microwave.
