I just did this quiz and got an 80/100 score. Try it, it's fun, even when you're not an American. Apparently, only 1 out of 20 Americans know the answer to most questions. Some are really easy - the others (about sports or industry) are more challenging, or at least were to me.

Have fun!

QUIZ: Do You Know Everything About American History?
Your Score: 98%
Uncle Sam is IMPRESSED
You are a true American hero [sic] who knows all about the great United States.

I'm not even American!!!!

I'm sure UnMask would get 100%. Most questions were dead easy. I stumbled on sports questions and... I can't remember what now. A couple of my right responses were educated guesses. But I found most of the knowledge involved elementary...

But then I'm supposed to be the "Ultimate Know-It-All", aren't I? wink

Though I'm not sure why knowing history makes one a hero or heroine. Confused

It isn't really 100 questions, just 50. You can do it in less than 10 minutes.

OK I will try and and let's see how someone who has never been to the US goes... I don't expect to score anything on sport and probably very little on industry.. And bear in mind I am now embarking on yet another glass of wine so will be guessing a lot of the answers with gay abandon as they say...LOL super grin

Nope even 50 questions took too long sorry...... super grin

Made my computer run far too slow between questions so got sick of waiting and wondered if it was because I have had nothing to do with the US travel or otherwise? Anyway who cares? Not me as my world does not revolve around the US thank gawd...

Now let the rest of us know how you did at least.. super grin

Got half-way through, got some right, some wrong, then the screen abruptly changed, and I lost the page. Lacked the energy to go back again. I probably would have gotten something like 65 or 70% - with luck!!

Keeping in mind that I'm not American, 55% isn't too bad, is it? super grin
