    BTW North America and South America are not 2 different continents. [​IMG]

    40% ...yeah, localisation issues [​IMG]

    Ignoring the US questions I still got 5 wrong so that's just dense on my part. Who pays attention to when the equinoxes are anyway? (that's what TV guides are for) [​IMG]
    Um... yes they are. (edited cuz crackpipe got there before me)

    Lets not start a war over this, some people consider North America and South America as being a single continent, others don't. There isn't a consensus.

    Really? I didn't know, that's cool. We were taught it as fact, schools have a habit of doing that to avoid confusing the kiddies. Don't mind me, carry on [​IMG]

    I`ll stay with my 6 continents planet:
    *America
    *Antarctica
    *Africa
    *Europe
    *Asia
    *Australia

    Who make this "2 Americas" thingy? I bet it was the same people that make "Pluto not a planet".

    It's called the metric system people, get with it!

    I did know the Imperial units question, but more in a 'useless trivia' way than a 'I measure things in yards' way [​IMG]

    45% here although I think some of those were somewhat of a lucky guess: US history (I am not sure such a thing exists), US geography and the imperial system are not my strongpoints.

    Also I want to get my conspiracy theorist on about the man on moon lark, there is strong evidence the vikings made it there.

    45%, it's hard if you don't live in the US and have/use other units

    I got 45% too.

    The test is a bit unforgiving on non-US peeps.

    75% - I was playing some PKMN while taking it, so I wasn't on my A game. Ok, I'll stop making up excuses... I ate the toxic crayons as a kid.
