This is a cute little tool for those new to scepticism or for those trying to promote scepticism to friends or colleagues.

Quackometer "reads" the website found at the URL that you provide and compares the use of scientific terms to the normal use of those terms to determine if they're playing the old "quantum bait-and-switch".

I tried it on a website that I don't think anyone overseas had thought of and it passed with flying colours! The SCIO website scored ten canards.
