I would have been very embarrassed to not pass this test, but a couple of the questions were a little tricky.

Take the test here.

A+ here, but some of those answers were tricky. There are 4 or 5 I nearly chose differently.

I only got 73% - a C. I think I got every single geology question wrong.

B+ (88%) ... going pretty fast and not spending a lot of time though

f*** fruit, mammals, and meteoroids

actually, just f*** mammals...preferably of your own species...

LOL, I screwed up meteoroids. And the velocity question, I can't remember what it was now because I did this a couple of days ago, but I had only a couple of minutes to take the test because I needed to get to the GS meeting, so I decided that its velocity was zero when it hit the water because it stopped -- I have no idea what made me decide whatever it was wouldn't still have velocity if it hit the water. :-P

I feel better about my B+ knowing that I also have a 67% chance of surviving the zombie apocalypse and can take up to 28 5-year olds ina fight.

That's a pretty cool site.

With all those stats combined, I think we'll be relying heavily on you when the excrement hits the fan. That is, if doomsday scenario action/horror movies are any indication of the future.

WHICH THEY ARE!

Man. I could only take 17 5-year olds. I'll have to check on my Zombie skills later.

Posted by: briwei at January 6, 2008 1:36 PM

Before you count on me, know I had to make a lot of compromises to push my zombie state - first, I counted my replica 1797 flintlock pistol as owning a firearm (it is functional, so I am technically correct). Second, I will be a heartless bastard, taking an every man for himself approach. Sarah and the kids have already been briefed.

Hey, Brian - you need to indicate that you will fight dirty and piledrive and eye gouge as many 5 year-olds as possible...that'll pump your stats up.

The alcohol quiz is good, as well...I'm 100% alcoholic.

C+

And I guess I'll shoot my eye out.

F!

Posted by: Patti M. at January 7, 2008 9:39 AM

B-. That's a bit disappointing given the percentage of my regular reading that involves science.

Posted by: Mike at January 7, 2008 11:42 AM

Sadly the site is blocked from work. I'll have to wait until we finally get high speed access at home (2 weeks, yay)

Posted by: B.O.B. (bob) at January 7, 2008 12:13 PM

The quiz is a lot of fiddly little factoids. I've spent a lot of time reading a ton of shallow-but-wide stuff like this.

Posted by: James at January 7, 2008 12:16 PM

And some of the stuff I could just as easily gotten wrong. I'd say I was sure on 18/26, confident on another 4, and coin-flip iffy on the last 4.

Posted by: briwei at January 7, 2008 1:54 PM

Bull - Thanks for the tip. I opted to only "do enough to win".

And I managed 57% on the survival guide. I opted for ruthless as well.
