    Well, officially I guess this is a game, but given the holiday, it seems pretty timely and thus, a "Current Event." 20 of the 30 question come from the US citizenship test.

    Check it out!

    Sorry about that. I had an extra "http://" in there.

    Should be fine now.

    Thanks,

    I passed. Maybe without flying colors. But I passed.

    I got 24 out of 30 correct. I messed up on Amendment questions primarily.

    My wife did the same. I need to go through it and give it a shot. Interesting how much stuff that used to be taught in school isn't all common knowledge these days.

    I was feeling pretty good about getting 28 out of 30! (I missed the number of amendments that had not been ratified and Dwight Eisenhower's birthplace.) On top of that I can't even find a smiley that shows "Wailing and Gnashing of Teeth". I guess I'll have to settle for :tonofbricks: or :BangHead:.

    You know, it's not that funny. Next thing I know my son's going to want ME to enroll in summer school. Pretty obvious that constitutional amendments are not my strong point!!!!!
