Gullible Brits Believe You Can See Gravity, and That Light Sabers Exist

You've got to wonder about the sanity of some of the 3,000 surveyed people who believed that light sabers actually exist—and that memory erasers, in the style of the Men In Black neuralizer, are being used.

One fifth of the people polled at the National Science and Engineering Week in Birmingham believe light sabers are real, with a quarter of them also believing in teleportation. Half of the people believe in the Men In Black memory erasers, and a further 40 per cent of the people took Back to the Future II too seriously, by believing hoverboards exist in our day and age.

Hilariously, 18 per cent of the people who took part in the survey believe that you can actually see gravity. [Birmingham Science City via AOL via Neatorama]
