Arrghh! Sorry about coming in late but based on this post I would like to
know what the Chinese Sparrow Experiment was. I am interested in these
kinds of stories to tell me students. I think they are illustrative of
what can happen when you know only enough to get yourself in trouble.
Thanks to anyone who will help.
