THANKS for posting this. I follow the US Navy on one of my private lists and they were posting short videos that I watched.

I saw several vids on YT of him being interviewed but never watched any of them.

This looks like it may be more interesting, especially with the actual war footage. :)

4th July fun.....

Can you pass this citizenship test? Some questions are easy and some are not.

I got 70%… so I pass….

Not bad for a NZer/Welshman… but I was a bit disappointed to not do better

I KNOW there are US citizens who would do worse than me :)

I got 86% , 26 out of 30 but asked C for two answers. So should have been 80%.

Spoiler:
Year Constitution was written, knew 18?? but there were two of those dates.
I had no idea who was President during WW1. :roll

I missed N Mariana Islands as part of US. Never heard of it.
Missed high taxes as reason colonies fought Britain.
Didn't click all four of State run laws, thought land & zoning was Federal.
Can't remember the 4th one.

You did fantastic, Rumpole. But I've always known you know more about the US than MANY of our citizens... no doubt about that!

F U N!
Thanks :)

I dispute some of the questions/answers.

The US Territories one we discussed at CTH... the correct answer is NONE are not territories. There is no friggin answer that gets you a "correct" :doh

I think that as well as high taxes the revolution was also about no political representation.. and I got a fail for checking that as well as taxes.

The one about State responsibilities... I checked all... but figured that there must be one that was not correct... so unchecked one... I think it is too sneaky having all options that need checking.

Yeah I saw the discussion.

I went ahead and posted my poor score at CTH. I don't care. No one likes me over there anyway. ;)

Chris agrees with you about the revolution question.

I bet MANY at CTH will get poor scores... there are some genuinely stupid people there... but they wont reveal their true scores... because they are also dishonest.
