89%, though if I'm gonna be honest, I kind of guessed at a few that ended up being correct.

Although, in that same vein of being honest, it felt more like a history test then anything else.

Its  a history test and i am really bad in histoy , especially those of the USA ! So i won`t post my result here.

however i did get the most important questions right . I do know that it is recommended to study the american history a bit before you come to USA ( but i don`t wanna, europe(germany/france) is good enough for me )

Well, as your profile says you are from Sweden, you did quite well actually.

Quoting Jafo,

The direct effect no doubt would be an increase in the IQ of the gene pool........and a lot of open space to build a home.

lol ...

Currently [in Vic] we're trying to do an equivalent of 'The Knowledge' for Taxi drivers .... so far there's been about 70 people sit it...and only one passed...

Needless to say...we definitely don't have a Police charge called "DWB" for Taxi drivers.....they almost all are...

[you may have to look the acronym up....it's English]...

Most of that is caused by the education system in the US, it SUCKS BIG TIME!

Every year the education is the U.S. is getting worse.  They want drones instead of smart citizens.  They are not teaching like they did when I was in school.  They don't even teach the kids how to cursive write.  I asked the teacher why and she said most print or use computers.

Yeah, pretty soon no one will be able to sign their name! Hell, my son just graduated high school and the stupid place gives extra credit if you bring in boxes of tissue and treats at times! What an education system we have!

Hell, the Governor of the state I live in unfortunately said during his election campaign that he would bring back the trades into high schools so kids could learn a real job. But of course, he lied as usual. They taught trades when I went to high school in Michigan in the 1960's!

Yea,I got the same answer from the teachers where I live. I find it hard to imagine a world where people, if forced to write by hand, will only be able to print.

Quoting Borg999,

Quoting Borg999,

They don't even teach the kids how to cursive write

But that could be reality in some decades . The idea is interesting and also troubling. 

In germany i m one of the persons who did learn the cursive writing http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schulausgangsschrift#mediaviewer/Datei:Schulausgangsschrift_1968.png or

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lateinische_Ausgangsschrift#Lateinische_Ausgangsschrift . Something between the both, wikipedia is not so good here. And a year after i learned writing they switched the fontage ( 2002 i think.)

The new fontage for   for saarland germany looks stupidly and i don' t know if it isnt a handwriting pc font, simply prinitng  and connection them with / lines sometimes stupid.. http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vereinfachte_Ausgangsschrift#mediaviewer/Datei:Vereinfachte_Ausgangsschrift.png 

and one of my friends writes like that  ( nearly like comic sans ms to be honest ). and the number of persons who write like that is increasing constantly :

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grundschrift#mediaviewer/Datei:Hamburger_Druckschrift_ab_2011.jpg .

Of course that doesn`t have anything to do with the USA, but it shows that the education system has some faults and it begins with ahndwriting you are right here.  And these problems  are the same worldwide i think.

Do try to make a test about europe and test adult  europeans . it would be as funny as your test  ..

Upon completing this test I was told I got 0% correct.  All wrong.  Not joking.

 

Strange, considering *nearly* every answer I got correct while going through... maybe cookies had to be enabled.
