On the side of a hill in the deep forest green, tracing a sparrow on snow-crested ground,
blankets and bedclothes the child of the mountain sleeps unaware of the clarion call.
On the side of a hill, a sprinkling of leaves washes the grave with silvery tears,
a soldier cleans and polishes a gun.
War bellows, blazing in scarlet battalions, generals order their soldiers to kill
and to fight for a cause they've long ago forgotten

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.

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

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?
