Why Do I Always Forget to Title My Posts?

Happy Day internet! I forget sometimes that I have a blog. I figure if I can post once weekly I'm pretty much ahead of the game. Then I look and notice that I haven't posted in two weeks. Dang.

Regardless, I found a short quiz online that I tweeted recently. It's 13 multiple choice questions meant to gauge our general knowledge of science. Afterwards, they compare you to everyone else that has taken the same quiz. So far, the results have been discouraging. Take the short (3 or 4 minute) quiz and see where you fit in.

How'd you do? I put my results below.

Crap, I shouldn't do these things first thing in the morning when my brain hasn't engaged. I missed one, so twelve out of thirteen. I guess not bad though.

I answered one question (#12) wrong and was 85% in my age group. Fun quiz!

Dang I got the one about red blood cells wrong. Otherwise that was much better than I figured I'd do. Yay science!

I'm too chicken, congrats on being so knowledgeable.

Most of those are hardly even science questions.

I got one wrong. But most of the questions were pretty simple... however... it no longer surprises me to hear, "Which one of those is our star?" from adults at the observatory.

Jo said...

I got one wrong. Did better than 85%. Got the nitrogen question wrong.

12/13. Stupid atmospheric gases.

13 of 13! I'm as smart as Rusty!

You know: you almost never post anything and then when you do, it's a homework assignment. You're the meanest teacher in this school, Mr. Carl.

A quiz first thing in the morning! Are you subtly hinting that I should go back to school?

Jay Noel said...

12/13 here. Duh, I shouldn't take these quizzes until after 11 AM.

Dangit all. Two of them I should have gone with my first instinct. I got a measly 11 right. So embarrassed. I love quizzes and stuff like that. I like showing how smart (I apparently just think) I am...boo hiss.
