Which one did i miss?

You Passed the US Citizenship Test
Congratulations - you got 9 out of 10 correct!

Damn! I missed one of the questions and I don't know which one it was! They don't give the answers.

I stole the test from this woman. She whipped my Cracker ass by scoring a perfect ten. Of course, she IS a perfect ten herself, so I shouldn't be surprised. (Heh. How'd you like that sycophantic suck-up, darlin'?)

I suspect I missed question #9. I guessed Connecticut, but it probably was New Hampshire. I'm pretty sure about the rest of them.


I only managed 5 out of 10. In my defence, though, I'm British (and therefore answered the Revolutionary War question with 'Britain: but we let you win anyway').

I failed also. 5 of 10. But then again, I'm not a citizen either. Guess I should go back to history class and bone up.

Jefferson was the main writer of the Declaration of Independence...

Vermont was NOT one of the 13 colonies...

Constitution was written in 1787....

The introduction to the Constitution is called the Preamble....

The other questions I would think most US citizens wouldnt have any problem with....

There were three states who were republics before joining the union. Vermont. Texas, and Calf.

Vermont was the 14th state.

Here's a little useless trivia for you...

Vermont (14) and Kentucky (15) were the only two states to add a stripe to the flag as well as a star. That's right - for a very short period of time in the 1790's, Old Glory had fifteen stripes as well as fifteen stars.

Apparantly, the powers of that time saw that as more and more states joined the union, the flag would take on a decidedly "pink" tone as the stripes got thinner and thinner. So with the admission of Tennessee (16) to the union, they reverted back to the original 13 stripes and continued adding the stars.

History was never my strong suit. I only got 8 out of ten. I'm guessing I got the war questions wrong.

I just took it and got a 9, so I went back and checked and realized that I got the question on who has the power to declare war wrong, I said the president, but it's Congress - changing that answer gave me a 10 of 10.

Ha, 10 out of 10. Not bad for a non citizen.

I get to stay, 10 of 10 and I have exercised for forty-five minutes this morning so I have lots of blood sugar flowing in my mind...

Posted by: Earl on December 6, 2005 11:16 AM

Ok Jim, Earl
I got 9 out of 10 right. What were the answers? So both me an Rob know what we missed.

Suck-up noted.

Love ya, darling.

Posted by: Juliette on December 6, 2005 02:04 PM

9 out of 10

Do not know which one I missed.

Posted by: Timothy on December 6, 2005 06:29 PM

I also guessed Connecticut, but damn, I only scored 7 out of 10. Coming from a former History major, I think I am going to have to whip my own ass tonight.

That and look up all of the answers.

You may have missed the same one I did. It's to do with a date, and the exact dates of historical happenings always get away from me. Go back and choose a different number.


Posted by: Ric Locke on December 6, 2005 07:17 PM

I got 9/10. I put 1786 instead of 1787. Oh well, I was close.

Posted by: Ralph Gizzip on December 6, 2005 08:47 PM

I guess this is not a bad score for a Scotsman!

***You Passed the US Citizenship Test***
