Are You a Dumb American?


Well no I am English.

Apart from that I got 6/10 correct. = You Are Not a Dumb American

You got 6/10 correct.
You know a good deal about American history, but there's some basic facts you have wrong.
Time to go back to history class!

Anyway what I want to know is; Are You a Dumb Card Guy? I know I am, I can’t even find the test or know if it exists or not. Is there one? If such a test does not exist can some one kindly make one up so at least I can have a go?

:)
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I am a smart american (10/10). I'm not sure I can say that I am a smart card guy. I'd like to see a cardsharp test also.

Exactly which questions did you miss, they were pretty easy?

Well darn, now I can't be a part of the stereotype.

Here is my result:
You Are a Smart American

You know a lot about US history, and you're opinions are probably well informed.
Congratulations on bucking stereotypes. Now go show some foreigners how smart Americans can be.

And why is this in the card section?

Well I am not an American and I got 8. Not that hard. Not sure if I will get 8 for a card quiz though.

Hah the stupid program called me a "Smart American." Everybody knows that I am a dumb Canadian.

I think that here in Europe most people would define a dumb American as one who only knows things about his/her own country and nothing whatsoever of the rest of the world. Kind of amusing to me that a quiz with that title only have the same old questions about the constitution and independence. But of course I realize that it's only meant as fun.

But seriously, if you learn all of this in school and have it around you all the time in your culture, how can you get this wrong? Even I got 7 and I live on the other side of the planet. I knew 2 of my answers had to be wrong (so I guesses), but I don't know what my third mistake was. Perhaps I need to buy that John Adams DVD series after all.

John,

A smart American is equatable with a dumb Canadian. We rock THAT hard.

Also a 10/10 here. What I find really amusing is this line from the result page:

"You know a lot about US history, and you're opinions are probably well informed."

YOU'RE opinions? I guess the person who wrote that wasn't as smart as whoever formed the questions...

10/10 here, as well.

That wasn't the toughest quiz on American history I've ever seen, though.

Well, apparently I'm a "Smart American," but I must be a "Dumb Computerguy" because I can't figure out how to find out what my score is! It tells me I can post it to Facebook and see a preview before posting... but I have to log into Facebook and I don't have a Facebook account!

Well, I got it onto Tweeter (I have a Tweeter account because I'm following a story being posted there.) But this is all it says;

Didn't show me a total, guess that means it's a perfect?

I aced the first one and missed two on the second. The questions I missed was the one about which admendment didn't address voters rights and the one asking which form you complete to become a citizen.

Was expecting a cute parody of the Bowie song but no- just some questions which have nothing to do with America as it is. They might as well have asked things like:

Which sock did George Washington put on first?

Where did Betsy Ross get the cloth for her flag prototypes?
