I was emailed this today- it's some of the questions included on the test for citizenship. It's kinda interesting to see how much you know. I'm ashamed to say that I only scored 5 :eek: Well, at least I'm honest!

9, but I have an argument with one of the ones they say I got "wrong," I think there is more than one correct answer to that question. Can you tell I'm an American - I believe in my right to argue with authority! :)

catland

I got 10:) (I must admit I was guessing a couple of times there)

mugsy
05-07-2003, 12:18 PM
Ok, how dumb am I?? I got 10/12, but, misread number 4 and thought it said Congress...ok, how do you misread Congress for Supreme Court.... and number 6 was one of those "How many animals did Moses take on the ark?" questions....I read what I wanted to read. Oh well, I guess 10 isn't too bad, but I should be ashamed since I teach my 8th graders this stuff every year. *mugsy goes and hides in the corner.*

I love these too. History is my passion. 11/11 right!

yorkster
05-09-2003, 06:08 PM
Well I did better with that one! 11 of 11 :D


I did well with history in school (LONG time ago).
Now, if there was a test about psychology/sociology, I could ace that one! That stuff is very interesting to me ;)

mugsy
05-09-2003, 06:18 PM

kohala
05-10-2003, 01:20 AM
First one - 8/12 - I gave the President the power to declare war - no comment on current events; OK, so I added two Supremes to the 9; 1787 - needless to say I got it right the second time :D ; and DUH - of course you don't have to be elected by the people.\
Second one - 10/11 - hmm, got more interested in geek - oops, Greek Mythology and forgot the one I missed
Third one - TaDa 9/10 - OK, so I didn't know heacles had to face 12 challenges (or something like that)
Good to find this area again - now I know where everyone's hanging out!

mugsy

catland
05-12-2003, 06:27 PM
what if I said that the cat clawed my homework?;)

mugsy
05-12-2003, 07:14 PM
OH PLEASE!!! lol But, then you would be amazed at the excuses I get. My usual response is,"Deal with it!" lol

catland
05-12-2003, 07:54 PM
WHAT? You're a teacher that expects your students to develop moral character and be responsible for their actions?

mugsy
05-12-2003, 09:04 PM
I know....I guess I should apologize eh? My rule is that if you don't have it in class on the day that it's due then it is a zero. You can't know how many times I've heard, "Mrs. Kendall, may I go to my locker to get my assignment?", my response, "No." lol

babolaypo65
05-13-2003, 05:30 PM

Edwina's Secretary

8/10. Got the budget wrong and the number of employees at the Pentagon. I was low on both.....

catland
05-13-2003, 05:47 PM
I got 7/10 on the military quiz and 5/10 on the politital jargon quiz. That second one was tough - I was guessing at most of the answers.

ChrisH
05-13-2003, 05:50 PM
I got 6/10 but I have to admit I only actually knew the answers to two - Iwo Jima and Green Beret- I guessed the rest.
Molly, I do have a good excuse, I am British not American...does that work!

ChrisH
05-13-2003, 05:59 PM
6/10 again on the political jargon. I knew 4 out of the six this time, whip, lame duck, bandwagon and pass the buck.

Well the military quiz I got 10/10, but the political jargon I only got 4/10...that sucked! lol Chris, you don't have to apologize to me. My students wouldn't do that well and they were born in the U.S. (except for one born in Bosnia).

RICHARD
05-14-2003, 12:33 PM

This is a IQ test a lot of us Brits took part in a couple of weeks back, it was on tv and those of us on computers could contribute to the results. It was real good fun!:D

Here`s the link, it takes about 20 minutes to complete.

Test the nation (http://www.bbc.co.uk/testthenation/)

My IQ result was 110. I suspect a lot of Pet Talkers are going to do much better than that!:)

lolololol

05-15-2003, 09:05 PM
Well in England I only have an IQ of 98, but the pounds and stuff like that really threw me off, but, I really am NOT that smart! lol

yorkster
05-16-2003, 02:27 PM
Here is another IQ test that I took a few weeks ago on the emode web-site. There won't be questions in pounds, kilos, etc. so for the Americans here it will be a little more reflective:

Is everyone here taking the same test? I got 136 - I'm supposed to be a visionary philosopher. ok. sure.
Now let me tell you my philosophy on animals being the true source of our intelligence and how they will eventually be the ruling factor in a society where humans supreme function is to serve them. My vision :cool:
