Make Bikes, Not Nano!

I’m not entirely sure what to make of the results of a recent survey that concludes the American public thinks nanotech is less useful and more risky than bicycles (but more beneficial than handguns). Is this an insight into public perceptions of risks associated with new technologies, a carefree ‘um, whatever’ to nanotech from Joe Average, or an example of how surveys often churn out results that don’t actually tell us anything useful whatsoever?
