I always have to think of two episodes with my aunt and uncle when I try to explain Science and/or computing to the public:
My aunt always heard that Oranges are full of Vitamin C, so she assumed that when she cuts one open that the orange “stuff” you see is the Vitamin C. Makes perfect sense from her point of view (and is not completely wrong), but that is the level of understanding that you can expect from most people.
My uncle is fanatic about racing pigeons, and he saw a breeding app at a colleague’s home that he absolutely had to have too. So he bought it and called me to install it - which I did (it’s a simply database app). So when he sat down to use it the first question was a rather puzzled “And where are my pigeons?”. When I told him that this is a database app and he needs to enter the data himself he exploded: “YOU MEAN I PAID 300 DOLLAR FOR THIS AND MY PIGEONS AREN’T IN THERE?” - “Sorry, no.” - “CAN’T YOU DONWLOAD THEM FROM THE INTERNET? EVERYTHING IS ON THE INTERNET!"
So Bert needs to take more care with what he is writing (which is a lesson to all of us as well). The intentions are good, the facts are correct, but HOW it is written in parts will feed conspiracy theorists.
