    Quiz: Not All Americans Are Stupid

    http://www.netcartoon.net/naaas/doquiz.php

    You scored about the same as the average 10-year old in any country other than America. Your understanding of the world and its history is very poor. It is unlikely that you form many opinions of your own, and when you do, you probably soon bow to peer pressure. However, all is not lost - read a few books, visit some other countries, and you could one day become a reasoning human being.

    And that was 10 out of 20

    For an American, your knowledge of the world and its history is surprisingly good. About the same as the average school-age person in any other country. If you are at school, congratulations. If you are an adult, try harder. Read books, visit other countries, and watch less television. Learn to understand the world better and you could become an ambassador for your country, demonstrating that Americans are not all stupid.

    Interesting quiz... Really, if you pay any attention to foreign affairs, it's not impossible. However, I think that the '10 year old' comparison might have been a tad too much... it seems that it would depend on the country.

    13 out of 20 for me. I'm not an American, I didn't get any bit about 10 year olds or anything. Just said I had a fairly good understanding of world and it's history. Funny really because my memory is so poor, I was going mostly gut instinct, not proper remembering of facts. I suppose my subconsious moved my instinct some.

    I tried to take the test, but I ran out of time on each question.
