sdav:
Asmodeus: 100% because I paid attention in primary school ;)

Despite the score, when I saw the thread title I immediately said to myself, yup!


To be fair, while it's the trend to hate on the average American, I have little confidence most countries would get a higher average except for maybe some Scandinavian ones!


Yeah I know, but I assumed from the title that Americans didn't do too well in this test... (and that it would be at school level). Also, to be fair, I never learned about fracking when I was at school. The rest is all intermediate level stuff though. Whether or not you remember it all is another story

13/13. Fracking was the only question to give me pause, it was a toss up between coal and natural gas, then I mentally face palmed when I thought: how would you suck coal up through the ground with the equivelent of a giant straw?

I cruised through High School, doing ok but not applying myself that often. Now I clean toilets for a living. It an't what you know, it's what you do with it. (and who you know).

13/13 I'd have been concerned if it wasn't to be honest.

The nitrogen question was amusing. The new policy at work is all cars should have nitrogen in their tyres. The fleet manager didn't get it when she was asked if 78% was enough....

Got a chuckle out of this.
100% here.
There was a question above about how John Key might do on the quiz. I reckon it would be more interesting to test all the MPs. It would probably display quite a nice bell curve.
