"You answered 14 out of 15 questions correctly
for a score of 93%." I scored better than 97% of the people surveyed.

I flubbed 2 questions, although I would have answered correctly if I had thought a sec longer.

I realize it was designed with Americans in mind, but it seemed really US-centric, like the question about Joseph Smith.

Also, I bet you most Europeans would do miserably on a quiz like that too.

I'll have to take this later. I've gotten to the third question, and I get an error message that the "connection has timed out."

I had major problems with my connection. I had to refresh many times, and, by the time I made it to the end, it screwed up my results. I got 14 out of 15 (I missed the last one), but, with all the refreshing, it said I only got 3 correct. Is it possible that the poor scores being reported in the news are in part because of these connection issues?

Took me many tries to get through it. 14/15 for me too. I think they threw that last one in there to make sure there weren't too many 100%. I found the stats on religious affiliation pretty interesting.

I actually got the last one right, but I sort of guessed. I knew it couldn't be Billy Graham, so it had to be one of the other two and Edwards sounded vaguely familiar to that context.
