if you want a real challenge, why don't you just go fuck yourself.


I did not complete exam, but I project a score of 49.

Hey, I retook the test. 50 out of 50. It took me two tries but I am now smarter than everyone here and am "a fucking genius."

See? Being able to learn from experience is a sign of emotional intelligence.

I retook it once and got a 49, so while my science knowledge is for shit, my memory isn't too bad. Apparently, I'll never know what a joule is, though.

28 out of 50

I'm okay with that, I never had much book learnin. I only got a couple of outright guesses correct, I either knew the answer or came to an answer based on something. I'm a little upset that I didn't know how old the earth is.

Towards the end that smiling lady and her vials of dye was starting to get to me.

For figuring out how a pasty, paunchy, middle aged dude with a hairy back can continue to get paid for making it with young babes, we salute you, Mr. Hedgehog!

Due to a corny joke that a student teacher told my classes a couple of years ago, all of my students now remember what a joule is.

I'm going to miss being able to tell bad physics jokes. I doubt it is a good idea for ELL students, even if they have been taught in English since kindergarten.

Oh, I didn't finish the test. I got pretty bored with it after about twenty questions.

I didn't finish reading Galoot's entire comment. I got pretty bored with it after about the first paragraph.

This is Meade's way of saying that he's dying to hear that Joule joke.

So am I, out with it.

Yeah Galoot, that could be taken a couple of ways.

Like either:
Bill Joy got bored explaining Java to Narcoleptish..

Or:
Narcoleptish got bored trying to figure out how to attach a picture to his post.

And I would like to hear the joke also.

Newton was well known for being a confirmed bachelor, but his uncle had other ideas. He kept trying to introduce Newton to an eligible woman he knew. Newton kept coming up with excuses for avoiding the introduction.

Finally, his exasperated uncle cried out, "Newton, meet her, she's a jewel!"

45 of 50. Missed several of the space/astro questions. Damn, CSM is racking up some page views with these quizzes - minimum 100 page loads to complete the quiz!

Hmm, that's a possibility. I thought it was just poorly designed.

So, it appears as though this is more of a memorization of "How much do you remember from High School, and 100 level science classes." I got a few wrong because I didn't think hard enough, and honestly a few more did stump me. At least the Christian Science Monitor gets the age of the earth right. I hope you all did too. :) 42/50
