Science is in our daily life.... It is everywhere. There are times where we don't think scientifically and be ignorance of this thing call science. Like in our daily life, we eat lots of different types of food. There are food that is more acidic and some food that are neutral or alkaline. This are all related to science. We cannot just study everything in school yet fail to apply it in life. We know that food that are sour are acidic then people who have gastric problems should avoid taking food that are acidic. I find that some people are so ignorant of simple knowledge such as this and end up rolling on the floor because of gastric pain.
Science is not a subject by itself only. It is link to all kinds of things in life. We need to learn that different stuff works differently and it is good to have the knowledge yet it is even better if we know how to apply the knowledge in our daily life. If not it is a waste studying in school.
There is this quote that I really like... It goes like this:
If you think Education is expensive, try ignorance! Derek Bok
That is really true! For the gastric person, if he knows that it will hurt to eat sourish things then he will try to avoid it then.
If a person knows that touching electrical points with wet hand will get electrical shock then the person will be cautious to wipe the hands dry before proceeding to on the switch or anything else.
The list goes on and on.... So we must learn to apply what we learn to our real life. And never be ignorant and proud!
