Submission + - Boy finds 1981 Smithsonian error

vieux schnock writes: "Yahoo News has an interesting story about a fifth grader who found an error in the museum's Tower of Time where the Precambrian was mistakenly labeled as an era. He received a letter of commendation for his discovery. The Smithsonian's solution to the problem? '(S)imply painting over the word "era"'.

P.S. No lame jokes about being less smart than a fifth grader. Yahoo News already did it. ;-)"
