    Default OT: Take test and post your score!

    I got 23 out of 30, so I don't feel too bad, but I am slightly
    embarrassed by the ones I missed.

    How well will you do?

    Okay you 'red-blooded Americans'.. let's see how you do on this test
    24 out of 30 is considered a passing grade. Supposedly 96% of all High
    School Seniors FAILED this test... AND if that's not bad enough, 50+%
    of all individuals over 50 did too!!

    Take the test and be surprised at what we don't know.

    Most of the questions were fairly easy, but a couple I can see many
    people missing. I scored 25 but two were lucky guesses.

    I'm not surprised HS seniors failed the test. They don't teach that
    stuff anymore! And I know how you felt. Me too!

    I didn't have noscripts turned off so it gave me a false result at
    first. I could check my answers against what it claimed I said by
    going "back". After I turned off noscript, wheew... I wasn't *that*
    dumb after all. 27/30, but it was pure guess on a couple of them.

    I missed 8, 21 and 22. All three had to do with the # of
    Constitutional Amendments. Better study up on that stuff.

    Whoo Hoo!!! I got a 28. And I dispute one of the wrong answers.....the one
    on impeachment. I thought they fell like one vote short of impeaching
    Andrew Johnson..just saying. The other one I missed was a dumb mistake on
    my part.

    You knew how many presidents had been assassinated? Congratulations,
    I had no clue. If I'd thought about it a long time, I might have said
    3.

    The one people would likely have forgotten is Garfield. I memorized
    all kinds of stuff about the presidents the Summer between 1st and 2nd
    grade (when a normal boy would have been playing baseball or
    something). Unfortunately, medical care had improved drastically in
    the succeeding 100 years, and the attempt on Reagan (may he rot in
    Hell) was unsuccessful.

    25. I blew it on the amendment stuff.

    I can't believe anyone would miss on a couple of those, like number of
    states and current Prez and Veep.

    Isn't history a public school subject any longer? Heck, we started in
    the 4th grade and it was repeated yearly with additional info.

    Civics was also a 7th and 8th grade requirement.

    You're wrong. They did impeach Johnson. They did not convict him, just
    as they did not convict Clinton. Impeachment is the equivalent of
    indictment elsewhere.

    For me, some were logic puzzles. I didn't know the answer, but I could
    figure it out. Like the one with voting at 18. I knew what the 18th and
    19th amendments were, and about when, so that left it pretty easy that
    the one higher number would be it. Had they thrown another in, like
    27th, I'd had to guess.

    My score was 26, the ones I missed were on the amendments and how many
    presidents were assassinated.

    Failure here but then I did not have any US History until High
    School. We learned Hawaiian History way back then. But to compensate
    for my weakness, my own daughter became a High School History
    teacher. She must have felt deprived growing up and so found US
    History fascinating- you know how that goes-lol.
