Though we share this humble path, alone
How fragile is the heart
Oh give these clay feet wings to fly
To touch the face of the stars

Breathe life into this feeble heart
Lift this mortal veil of fear
Take these crumbled hopes, etched with tears
We'll rise above these earthly cares

Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me

Stop, Drop, and Roll with it, Baby

Random Michelle K and Janiece are doing it, so I thought I'd do it too.

The American Civic Literacy test.

For giggles I scored a 90.91%, missing three questions (Lincoln-Douglas Debates, benefits of International Trade and Specialization, and I mixed Debt and Deficit in my head, so got that last one wrong too).

Hey, how come it seems to be showing you guys what you missed and all I got was the score?

No fair.

Steve Buchheit said...

Hey Nathan, below the score they gave the correct answers in red (for the ones you missed), then they displayed your quiz answers. Hope you still have it up in a window.

Stewart Sternberg said...

I think some of the answers in that quiz were biased. Especially those dealing with trade policy and markety policy. Just saying.

Todd Wheeler said...

A mere 78%. Back to the books

Rick said...

You know this sounds like a cool test. I wasn't going to take it, but since Stewart says its biased, I'm going to give it a try. Will they revoke my citizenship if I fail completely?

Rick said...

Steve, you and I scored the same. We should be appointed to something or other, don't you think?

Steve Buchheit said...

Stewart, yeah the international trade question seemed a bit off to me. And the prevalence of the second amendment answers seemed a bit odd.

Todd, well, you did better than the average, so not bad.

Rick, I can haz ambassadorship now?
