I don't think ANYONE from Owensboro could even get ONE answer right...no multiple choice then.
Most people who come on topix can't even spell their name. They are all so ignorant.
I dare anyone to take the quiz and tell us their score.
Sure

Why do you have to have a FB account to participate?

Sorry, I choose not to help facilitate Big Brother's data collection scheme or his social engineering project(s).

It's ironic that sheeple cry about their privacy being invaded, but when given an opportunity to give up all their information voluntarily like FB, they go right for it!!..Then Big Brother is right there to archive it. The Data Center in Utah was meant to hold in excess of Yodabytes (YB) of information. This may not seem like a big issue since most of us aren't up to anything sinister, but as someone with a degree in mathematics, I can tell you that because the collected information is going to be kept INDEFINITELY, the probability that it will one day be compromised, stolen, and published is just about 100%.

I could take information provided by you over time on FB, and use it to predict what you're going to do or where you're going to be at any given moment in the future.
Your future chinese overlords might frown on those ancient posts about freedom, democracy, christianity, or human rights. Or any posts that suggest you're mentally ill or "undesirable" in any way.

Um..you do realize it is a 1912 test?
Did you fail the 8th grade because of a lack of reading comprehension?
Yes

They have found that dumbing a high school graduate down to the previous fifth grade level was what it took to pass most of the the kids when segregation of the schools was ended in the 60s.
Otherwise there would be way too many left back who had to repeat too many times for the teachers to enjoy extravagant pensions and benefits.
It just cost way to much to get them all smart for the teacher's taste.
That's where it stands right now.
Wealthy teachers and dumb kids.

I grew up in Queens New York. I moved out here about six years ago, and was shocked in how unprepared my students were coming into my classes.
