Quiz

I just took this quiz. Scored perfect. It's a Pew Research quiz of only 13 questions. Only 8 percent have scored a perfect grade.

Most young people, and those pictured here, would fail.

How about you. Give it a shot and let me know how you scored.

It isn't hard, really.

H/T, PawPaw.

  4. My pleasure. Thought it was fun. For those with limited current event knowledge it'd be a bitch...

  5. I missed one question and I think that one was because I was going through the quiz so fast, lol! I missed the one about which was controlled by Republicans, house, senate or both. On the other hand...does it really matter? No matter who is in charge, it is business as usual, lol!

  9. I missed one, I mis-read the question about unemployment rate. I knew it was about 9% but I thought it was asking what actual actual (real) rate was and I guessed 15%

  11. 13 out of 13 although I admit I guessed at the Afghanistan casualties. 1800 seemed a bit high but 1800 seemed too low so I really shouldn't count a guess as correct.

    1. As I've said with others, I knew you'd score well. Guess or no guess. Thanks, my friend.

  12. Yeah, 13. I'm really sad to see some of the percentages that scored less than 5. They are out there voting.

    3. Corey, I'm so very sorry. It'll not happen again. I have a personal friend, a lady, with the same name and every darn time I see your name her face pops into my mind. Again, I'm sorry.

  16. Perfect. That worries me. Those people that got ten wrong should not be allowed to breed.

  17. I got two wrong but I think it was because I looked at the questions wrong...That's my story and I'm sticking to it! I got the unemployed number wrong and the deaths in Afghanistan.

  18. I got them all but they were way too easy. But someone who spends their whole day playing video games or occupying Wall Street. I could see where they'd only get 1 or 2 questions right.

    1. I agree, it was a easy quiz for those that read at least one newspaper a day. Thank you, my sweet friend.

  20. I got them all right. Number of dead in Afghanistan was an educated guess, I confess, but I was pretty sure of it.

    I've stopped by before, but I think this is the first time I've commented. :)

  21. 100% Interesting that so much of it was visual - photos rather than just names.

  22. @Hillbilly, I took a "voting test" once that was mostly pictures. The "tin foil hatter" in me thought is was geared toward making folks who only listen to talk radio seem "ineligible" to vote...

  23. ACK! I got 9 out of 13! I am so embarrassed.

  25. Got them all, but then I thought those were pretty easy questions. Some of those I wish I didn't know, (for instance I wish I had never heard of Sonia Sotomeyer)
    Thanks for the quiz though, and for you blog!

  29. I got 12 correct. I missed the symbol of islam. And that's just fine by me. But, Sonia Sotomyor and Elana Kagan are both really ugly women so that one was tricky...I barely got by on that one.

  30. Which european country is facing a massive debt crisis... I couldn't find the answer "all of the above".
    I got 10, but to be fair a lot of it's stuff we don't get much of on the news here.
    Sad that I did better than a lot of your local folks.

  31. Got 12 of 13 correct. Missed the symbol of Islam but I know one when I see one.

  32. I think they're wrong about 1800 lost in combat. I thought I did well to say 18,ooo reported deaths (as opposed to real deaths which I feel is still higher) so 12. My kids failed miserably though. They're over 21 but still... I must of dropped the ball somewhere...
