    Science wasn't one of my strongest subjects when I was in school and therefore I bailed after question 20. I knew my final score wasn't going to be good.

    What? The Earth isn't 6015 years old? 3.5 billion? What kind of satanic hogwash is that?!

    I was feeling pretty good after getting the first 5. I ended up with 34.

    No regular person knows that. None.

    It goes to your own score. I clicked the link and thought "Holy shit, we missed all the same ones and picked the same wrong answers.... Oh, I get it."

    Yeah, fuck that one. And the one about the mass of a newton.

    And I thought I knew the one about Pluto and Eris, but what threw me off was the Greek goddess it was named after. Can't believe Motorola named a smart phone after the goddess of strife and discord. Engineer nerd inside joke?

    After the lying test lied about 6015 years and about Pluto being a planet, I spanked it to Elizabeth Harbron. I win.

    I guess I'm not looking too bad if teacher grades on the curve. And no one tells VMS about this thread. :icon_cool

    Fuck you, sinners. I'm not touching that quiz. Science is the devil's craft!

    I got the first one wrong and bailed out in shame

    I was never taught most of that shit (I got a few of them right just by analyzing how the question was phrased) and there were at least 7 that I got wrong because I answered against my instinct. For some reason, when I'm sure of something in a quiz like this, I tend to assume I'm wrong.

    Still working through it (Ponderous site), but two that I've missed so far (Two planets where you weigh the least, and the continent where the earliest humans were found) threw me off. I was sure that planets increased in mass away from the Sun, so Venus would have lower gravity then Mars. And the scientific name for the early human said "Austrailius" something even though I would've guessed Africa normally.

    On to finish my quiz.......

    I knew the answer to the first one from a sci-fi book, and the answer to the second from the Maxx cartoon. Nice "science" knowledge. :haha7:
