meme: Am I Dumb?
How smart are you?

I saw this in a few different journals. Some of the questions are more random trivial knowledge - like the average height of a full grown man in the US - and I probably just got lucky on gut instinct. :-)

I got 21/25, thus only smarted than 3/4 of the population. I don't benefit from your great age. ;)

And, once again, I fail at basic math.

I want to know what I got wrong. I got 24/25...

24/25 here, too.
It's a shame that it does't tell you the correct answers after the fact. I probably got the average height one wrong but it would be nice to know for certain.

take it a second time and change your answer?

I took it and it said I got 25/25 right but I was only smarter than 98.1%. I wonder why you got 100% ?

I don't know - weird.

I got 99.06th Percentile for 25/25, so my theory is that a lot of smart people took the test after you posted it, temporarily unbalancing the curve, but the natural flow of American ignorance has since restored the natural order. Frankly, I was surprised this wasn't another one of those sites that shows you one result, i.e. "You are a genius!", while showing guests to your LJ another message; "Sleet01 is dumber than a box of rocks! He scored 0.00 out of 25!"

By the way, I saw that Megazone 23 bike you posted about way back when in a figurine shop in Akihabara the other day, including the rider, but it was over 22,000 yen and I didn't think you'd appreciate a COD :)

Thanks - I actually ordered it, it is sitting on my desk at work. ;-)
