Pocahontas - i think i am rebellious every day, but certainly not in a traditional sense. how rebellious was that statement? but also true.
Jasmine - i thought hard about this one, and i don’t think i would ever want a destination. i would love to own a large boat and nothing off of it’s deck would have a thing to do with me. surely, i would port in amazing places, but never for too long. :) i would probably invite many people to join me for a soiree on the seas aboard the SS My Boat Has a Clever Name.
This is worth your time. See how you do and send it on….
This test is not an easy one. The website reports that college educators average about 55%. The average citizen averages about 49%.
I got 20 out of 33 right
You answered 19 out of 33 correctly — 57.58 %
Holy shit! 8D
You answered 12 out of 33 correctly — 36.36 %
hahaha, that test was ridiculous.
18 out of 33 correctly — 54.55 %
17 out of 33 correctly — 51.52 %
30/33 - 90.91%
21/33 - 63.65%. I feel like an idiot >.>
i got 31 out of 33, and one of the questions i got incorrect was pretty bogus. this test is very culturally specific. gotta say.
31/33 I was surprised about a couple that I got right, because I had no fucking clue.
28/33…not THAT bad :p
I quite agree with Fightingpokemon above, it was very culturally specific to the point that the questions came down to opinion rather than actual fact. the test was good for like the first 20 questions and then they turned into a lot of bullshit about “why markets are better for democracy”.
That all said: You answered 29 out of 33 correctly — 87.88 %. I learned most of that in American Studies this past year. It was easy, dudes.
Why was there a question about Sputnik in this without actually asking what it meant to the US. Also, yeah, seriously, love the loaded questions about capitalism.
“International trade and specialization most often lead to which of the following?” I don’t know, I’ll get back to you when I get a fucking degree in economic history but this isn’t a question about civic structure this is a question about something completely different.
30 out of 33.
Side-note: their answer for what a public good is shows they know absolutely nothing about what a public good actually means. “A resident can benefit without paying for it” tells you ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about the non-rivalled, non-excluded status of a good. Though I guess they’re trying to discuss the free-rider problem, which is a subset but not the full story about what actually MAKES a public good.
Their answer on the result of taxes and spending is also skewed because, if taxes = spending then government debt for that budget is 0. This is a mathematical fact.
11- a hobby: my hobbies vary based upon my mood. if i’m downtrodden, i will write, or meditate, or collage paper bits together like mosaics. something simple and repetitive. if i’m in a positive mood, i might do any of those things, or any number of other things. examples include bicycling/walking aimlessly through the outdoor world, building something, fixing something, “investigating,” (which is a blanket term for my infinite quest for knowledge) or even just chillin at home with my roommates. you never know.
2 - an obsession: i frequently become obsessed with new things. i would say, in a broader sense, i am obsessed with trivial knowledge. i try desperately to obtain more knowledge at any cost, and at all times.
4 - an insecurity: though i am very unusual, and admittedly very flawed, i am seldom insecure. i present my true spirit at all times, especially if i think someone won’t like it. i love to push people’s buttons.
