    Default Civics Quiz

    I missed two. One of which I would argue. But I had already seen a lot of these questions when I was teaching at the continuation school last year, plus all my teaching stuff, so I had a bit of an edge.

    I am 49, bald, ugly, and don't own a single cool thing. Kids like me though.

    I got 47. A good quiz. It was broad. That's impressive to miss only two.

    This was basically a mix and match version of about ten quiz's they give continuation students in order for them to qualify for their degrees. They get as many chances as it takes to pass. And the actual sections are fairly tough, but pick and choosing the more difficult questions, would make it all that much tougher.

    Aside from my teaching experiences, I have a gift for remembering trivia and otherwise useless information. I usually win at trivia (I suck at literature). I would be competitive at jeopardy, and while I don't think I would often stump the Schwab under current rules, if you give me anything before 1990 (when life got too much in the way), I think I'd win.

    Funny thing is.... now that I am older, I don't even remember 'why' I know the answers to certain things anymore. It is just stuck in that grey matter.

    I got a 50. Missed 6, 18, 24, 31, 36, 39, 53, 55, 58, and 60.

    6 and 18 kind of irritate me to see that I missed, especially 6. I guess I maybe just mixed Jefferson's stealing from Locke, with actual Locke, I haven't looked at the Declaration in a while though.

    The other ones I pretty much just didn't know.
