I'd be interested in knowing how other folks do on the news quiz.
Having accessed a PC that works (
) I got 12 out of 13 for science (I thought you fracked for coal, rather than gas.....Frack!).
On the "news", I got 6 out of 13 - coincidentally (or maybe not!), the questions that weren't US-specific I got right, the ones about internal American issues I got wrong. But I'm confident that if I asked the average americans questions about the current Speaker of the House, which constituencies voted Lib Dem, and who the MP for Southend and Rochford East were, Citizens of the US would do equally poorly.
