Remember, folks, when I write about stupidity, you should listen — I really know what I’m talking about.
As bad as my score was on the Slate quiz — lower than the picked staffer’s very low score, and way lower than the average — I knew even less than the number indicates.
I got six right, as you can see above. But three of them were just blind, lucky guesses. And a fourth was a sort of educated guess. I could see a certainly likelihood that the answer I tried was right, and I got lucky again. But I had not idea on the other three.
So I basically knew the answers on two out of 12.
And having the staff guy perform poorly — but not quite as badly as I did — is little consolation. Those people at Slate have all been in a slump lately…
303 for me. Tough quiz
You answered 7 out of 12 questions correctly and received 303 points.
263 points- 6 out of 12 too.
Shocked by the correct response to that one question.
You mean this one?
I missed that one. Hard as it is to believe, I had missed that…
Folks in England knew about it — here’s The Guardian’s story — but I did not.
Of course, that’s just the sort of thing to get a headline over there. They think of us all as bunch of homicidal gun nuts. The Independent picked it up, too.
The State ran something — online, at least. But I didn’t see it at the time…
Yes, that one. I missed it because I sincerely believed he had some sense of decency left.
