I got % 72.74 - which isn't actually too bad considering I'm not a U.S. Citizen.

Happy 4th everyone!!!

I'm impressed with anything more than 50 percent, especially if you are not a citizen. Several of the questions have little nuances in them that I think would trip up anyone who has had it hammered into them.

(My wife got 25/33, but she marked the wrong circle on one of them. I believe her. )

a lot of it seems to be more basic economics than constitutional history. the ones i got wrong were economic rather than history based.

The questions that got me were about government taxes equaling government spending and the one about the fiscal policy the U.S. government has followed during a recession.

I'm surprised that the average score was so low. Most of the questions were not that difficult.
Same score, missed Anti-Federalist and levee question.

Did ya see the guy lecturing the folks at the Amnesty International booth on American Exceptionalism?

Didn't get One Tree Hill in 1987 but I've heard it now. I read your review and we agree 100%

Thanks! It's slowly dawning on me what a treat that was. I had no idea the song was so rare. The version I heard in Japan which I got a bootleg of is my favorite version of that song--even better than real thing (pun intended).

Well, back to business. . .

I am sure you are not alone. (the others just didn't fess up)

America has some convoluted concepts that many would not be familiar with,
without living here.

I am sure I would not do so well on an Aussie or Kiwi quiz.

Ugh. If there is one thing that I learned as student, it was not to go back and change answers. More often than not the changes haunted me more than the originals would have. I missed being a National Merit Scholar because I changed an answer.

oh, fuck. that's awful. don't even get me started on changing answers. a bastard to me throughout high school. the best thing about university was pretty much every exam i took needed essay answers, so changing something wasn't really an option.

31 of 33. Missed the last question and the one on FDR appointing Supreme Court Justices.

I'm impressed I got the more technical economic questions right considering I haven't studied economics since high school. Thank you Mr Hill!
