Woohoo, I still have the lowest score so far!

We're playing with golf rules, lowest score wins. Thought you all should know

It would be fun to see a similar quiz on other countries for Americans to take


That occurred to my while taking the test... I would fail miserably! And I think most Americans would.

I'm VERY impressed by the people on ATS who live in other countries and pass this test. Good on you!

I'd still do it out of curiosity to your own knowledge, the majority of the questions are practically common knowledge, and the other questions (of which I did poorly on) are the inner workings of US history and politics (which area also not terribly technical questions either).

I care little about politics and modern history (Ancient history is so much more interesting to me), so I wasn't surprised I god many of those questions wrong.

I couldn't remember, but logically it couldn't be an even number otherwise you'd have split decisions. That's how I narrowed it down to 9.

I missed the one about Ben Franklin. I knew he was a diplomat, but given he was also a genius I thought he might have been the youngest signer too.

I missed the original 13 colony question. I just answered too fast and overlooked that Kentucky was not one.

I can't remember the other two I missed.

There was one question about who the Senate represents. One of the possible answers was state legislatures. The correct answer was the senate represents all people of the state. However, Senators were originally elected by state legislatures, not the voters. This was changed. I almost answered state legislatures, but figured was over thinking it even though technically one could make the argument that is the case.



Before the adoption of the Seventeenth Amendment in 1913, senators were elected by the individual state legislatures.[19] Problems with repeated vacant seats due to the inability of a legislature to elect senators, intrastate political struggles, and even bribery and intimidation had gradually led to a growing movement to amend the Constitution to allow for the direct election of senators.[20]

Thanks. I like Aphex Twin. Their videos are delightfully twisted. I'll look that one up.
ETA: I just watched it but I have no effing clue what I watched. Did somebody just hit me over the head with a brick?
