    Here's a fun civics test.

    http://http://www.americancivicliteracy.org...rces/quiz.aspx

    It's 60 multiple choice questions. I missed 11 and made an 81%. I know that some of you brainiacs will probably make a 100%, but I don't really care.

    Some questions are no-brainers and some will make your head hurt.

    Here are the ones I missed. You can compare. 3.....21.....35.....36.....38.....44......46.....50.....53.....55.....58

    No cheating and no taking the test more than once and posting your best score! Ha!

    Have fun! :applause:

    I missed 10 - 83% and also missed #58. In fact I missed almost 1/2 my total in the 50s.
