    Pretty pess poor..but the minutia of much of it escapes me. If I need to know it, I will go look it up...and in nearly 60 years, 99% of what was asked never came up.

    The 10 year/potus one got me too.
    I feel I should have gotten 4-5 more correct on the second quiz.[V] Some of those questions were very obscure, but not many.

    Cool website picken, good find.[:D]

    I got a 10 on the 1st one and 38 on the second. Not bad for a guy that has not really studied it in a few years. *L* Im happy with it.

    Marc, you got the prize right. [:D]

    I didn't forget to post mine, just waiting to see what others posted for scores.
    I got them ALL RIGHT..........up until I missed my first one. [:o)]
    10 of 10 on the first batch. I knew the VP could serve some time, but not the whole term. Given the choices, 10 was the logical number. Out of 50 I got 37 right. Shouldn't have done that bad. On #14 I knew it was Morris, but I checked the wrong Morris. Some of the rest that I missed, once shown the right answer, I said DUH, I knew that. There were some that I didn't have a clue. Figured that is not too bad, never having studied it in school. (long story)

    I thought it was an interesting and informative quiz and would fit well in this forum.
    I stole it from TRAP55.....don't tell him.

    Got to go back and edit the first post.
    Let people know NOT to read the thread before they take the quiz.

    Don't feel too bad,.......I picked the wrong Morris also!
    I won't lie and say that I did not guess on a few. Some of the dates were so close.

    Glad you posted this,.....it made me think again, and I found out I still know quite a bit. Thought I was starting to lose all of the things I was taught long ago when these facts were part of going to school.[;)]

    If I remain the "weiner",just mail me for my address.
    Nevermind,...I can close my eyes without instructions![:o)]

    yeah hey it was a great post. Kind of fun seeing what you remember and what you don't. To be honest I am really surprised by how much I do know. I am one of those guys that couldn't tell you squat in a conversation. I would get dates mixed up or something. But in a mulitple choice test, if I see the right one, I KNOW it is the right one most of the time. And like someone else said when I am wrong and they show the correct reply it's like DUH!!!!! Your idiot ! *L* But it was a good test thanks.

    This is a great quiz.
    I can not wait to give this to some of the know it all's at work.

    ol' plowboy got a 9 on the first test and a 41 on the second test. Not bad for 30 years out of High School, if I my say so myself.

    Thanks Rack. But I am staying out of the politics room. I am finding a better class of debate in these other rooms. A LOT friendlier and much less insulting. So far anyway. I still look at the postings in the other room. I see nothing that would temp me back. Same ol' hate filled name calling.

    I may not post as often as I used to but I will jump in sometimes. I really liked that quiz. I emailed to a couple of friends. So far I have beat them. *L*

    10/10
    49/50

    I missed the recognition of an other foreign country question. I thought too long and too hard. I should have just gone with my gut.

    This was a great quiz. Thanks for sharing!

    What does knowing who our first VP was has to do with knowing the Constitution?
