In preparing a talk for a workshop I've organized tomorrow, I realized there was one simple experiment that would tie several pieces together neatly. Unfortunately, I hadn't run it. But I figured, hey, I can get data quick on Amazon Mechanical Turk.
Turk let me down. I don't know why, but today there aren't a lot of fish biting. So I turn to my usual, pre-Turk subject pool: you. The experiment takes 1-2 minutes -- it's really just 3 questions. As an added inducement to get people to run the experiment now, I'll be posting the results later this week or early next week.
Say that again? Why chemical names tangle on the tongue
