I did notice that the “M” (Math) was missing in the PSA. I did find it interesting because Math is at the core of sciences, technology and engineering. Personally, I’ve seen an improvement in the math curriculum at my own kids’ school over the last few years. It’s advanced concepts into younger grades and the rudiments of algebra is apparent in the 4th grade level. By the eighth grade, we’re seeing the beginnings of trigonometry and various aspects of geometry. Science is making some advances as we’re seeing chemistry concepts such as Lewis Dot diagrams and chemical equation balancing – things I didn’t learn until Honors Chemistry in high school (along with other Gormogons).
The smartest advance in education in these areas might be the reordering of the sciences in high school. Many high schools in the 1980s were teaching Biology then Chemistry then Physics. However, recently, schools are moving to something along the lines of Basic Physics then Chemistry then Biology with later options of advanced Physics topics.
With regards to Hollywood jumping in on this – sure, it is amusing but I’ll take this over the “I’m on a drug….it’s called Charlie Sheen!” crap.
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
