    Does that mean I am smarter than a 5th grader?

    11-12 the question they say I got wrong was on the unemployment. They say it's 10% put when you figure in everyone it is close to 20 %.So I say I got 12-12.

    Did greater than 66% but less than 25% at least my math is better than theirs.
    66+25=91

    12/12 I agree, it would be fun to ask a few random folks these questions. This was an interesting post. Thanks, Curt.

    I missed two but they were wrong on their answer, according to today's news. Unemployment rate is at 17% and they said "closer to 10%. My major and masters weren't in math but 17 is closer to 20 (my answer) than 10. I also answered several questions they didn't ask so my true score is over 100.
    Question: what direction is the US headed politically?
    correct answer: socialism
    Question: what president has caused more debt than any other.
    Answer: the present person sitting in that office
    Question: What scares liberals more than anything else?
    Answer: the truth
    Question: What would be a good replacement for AARP?
    Answer: Angry Armed and Pissed Off.

    enjoy..
    Stan
