    It's getting worse - only about 48.5% (83 out of 171) got it right so far.

    Nice question, but it's rather startling how many got it wrong. Could it be that people are mistaking page compaction for data compression? Of have half of use learnt something which is totally false?

    Near enough equal again now. Which is what you'd expect if everyone guessed (as I did).

    But since many people must have known the correct answer, doesn't that suggest that many other people "knew" that the wrong answer was correct?

  • Nice question. I'm surprised more people haven't gotten it correct, as it wasn't too hard to verify.
