    Sage, … there is usually not a dare that I won’t take, including that of jumping out to the open sea in the bay in Santiago de Cuba years ago (and then finding that it was not easy at all to climb back on the row boat as I thought it would be). But, anyhow, on this dare … I impressed myself.
    I scored in the 69 percentile (69%) correct answers.
    I got two wrong questions. The one about the auto makers (question No. 7), and the one about the unemployment rate. (I forget which question No. that one was).
    All, in all, I am humbly NOT, flaunting my score.

    Can’t believe I got the treasurer one wrong! Already forgot what the other was, no coffee yet.

    OT- I am going on a vacation for a week or so. MT and OR. Leaving tomorrow night. The areas I am going rarely have cell reception let alone internet. Talk about a break!

    Thanks for sharing your outcomes. I thought it was kind of a fun thing to do. Break the monotony of fighting over health care.

    I did get a perfect 12 out of 12, but I should. I have the news on all day as I sit at the computer.

    Kudos to you Sage, for posting the link (which was fun to do) and for getting a perfect score. Wow! And I thought my 69% or 10 out of 12 was something to brag about. <:_)

    Sage Reply:

    Like I said, Sky….I SHOULD have gotten them all right considering the news is on for probably 8 hours a day in my office.
