You get asked some pretty crazy questions, when you’re wearing an “Ask Me” button. The craziest I got today was, “What should I do with this $100 bill that I just found?” No kidding. Needless to say, it was an interesting conversation.
Another interesting question that I got today was, “So, what are the 10 most polluted places on earth?” In case you’re wondering, it was this news article that I was talking about in the bioinformatics course that I teach at UBC that prompted that question.
For more details, check out this map of the World’s Worst Polluted Places:
