I'd give you one if I had the power to do so. It's good to see so many well-informed people.

I Scored a 91, I missed only one question. The one about the Dow. I thought I would have missed more. At least I know that while i'm reading or listening to the news some of it sinks in.

Don't give up Allyna! Take it anyway, you may surprise yourself. Even if you don't do well, the answers are given at the end of the quiz, and then you will know them.

I got a 48%...and I still don't like politics! This figure really doesn't surprise me though. I don't really keep up with the federal reserve chairman, or the who all is the house majority holder, etc. I'm sure I got the sec. of Defense right. Oh well...I still don't care


So be it...

I think a person's education level or place of birth are not so much a factor in the quiz as is their desire to know more about the World around them. Everyone's scores so far seem to speak to that fact. I've known many people with less than a diploma who knew much more than I did about politics and current events.

ATS members are not you're average person. They are curious, intelligent, and don't take most things at face value alone. They want to know the who, the where, and the why as well. Great job guys!

Anyway...great post...quite popular.

I had one wrong and received a 91% with one wrong. I guess you didn't take the test at all if you got a 97%.

83 here. missed 2, one of which I shouldn't of. oh well.

you know, it reminds me of those questions-on-the-street things that are occasionally on TV.

"So, where are Pakistani's from?" "uhhh... Saudi Arabia!?"...

I've always liked to think they are fake but... sadly a simple questionnaire of current events says they are not fake at all.
