Celebrities flunking science: 2011 edition
Snooki has earned her spot on an annual list of celebrities who sprout “bad science” by declaring that the ocean is salty because of whale sperm. The charity Sense about Science releases a list of the most egregious celebrity peddlers of pseudoscience every year. Bill O’Reilly, Michele Bachman, Gwyneth Paltrow, Simon Cowell and Christian Louboutin also made this year’s list.
In this animation, we explore the wacky beliefs of the celebs, from Bill O’Reilly’s utterance “Tide goes in … tide goes out … you can’t explain that” to couture shoe designer Christian Louboutin’s statement that wearing high heels can be an orgasmic experience.
For these celebs, maybe their new year’s resolution should be “Be Less Stupid.”
