  1. Posted this on FB…a lib friend of mine answered, “I got 7 out of 11. I feel ok with that considering I follow local news more than national news.” sigh…

  2. same here Deb,10out of 11!

    I think the one I missed was about electricity generation. In my state it’s all hydroelectric; but, I answered nuclear, probably because of the Ft Calhoun situation. What is it actually? Hydro?

  4. I got 10 out of 11. Really, pretty easy questions.

  5. 11 out of 11! Heck I even took a screen capture (I never do well on test so I’m a bit proud of myself! 🙂 )

  6. 11/11 (:
    That was fun!

  7. That was fun, I love quizzes.
    I got 10 out of 11 correct, too…I thought more Americans were obese than the answer said was correct.

    • That’s probably because you were thinking of “Over weight” instead of “Obese.” Obesity if a sub-set of Over weight.
      Percent of adults age 20 years and over who are obese: 34% (2007-2008)
      Percent of adults age 20 years and over who are overweight (and not obese): 34% (2007-2008)

      Which means in 2007-2008, 68% of Americans were overweight — half of whom were severely over-weight, i.e., obese!


  8. 10 of 11, missing a measly one. Rats. Gotta study more and stop watching those informative news-lies, and more on the real news.

  9. i got 10 of 11 but i don’t know which one i got wrong. maybe the obesity one i said 50% but that seems sort of high. also did you know that the budget to provide a/c to our troops in afghanistan and iraq is higher than the budget for nasa?

  10. 11/11 🙂
