120.  not saying he didn't 'not know'
just saying, we all misinterpret answers, or questions sometimes. This guy is very intelligent, I would think he's heard of it, quite often. I guess we'll find out in the future for sure. It's late... Sorry if I missed something in the story. Interesting article, indeed.
