It is fun. I didn't do too horribly and made 11/13 but I am ashamed of the ones I missed.

A bit too American biased for me I think

But I still got 11/13, which means I must be a pretty good guesser!

Oof. 8/13. The ones I missed were largely the ones that had to do with political parties and such (majority in house/senate, speaker of house, etc). Guess I need to have a CSPAN marathon.

12/13 and I too am ashamed of the one I missed, after all I work for the US Army! I really should know how many casualties we have suffered in Afghanistan!

I also hit the 12/13 mark. I knew I was taking a guess for the Prime Minister of Great Britain and picked wrong; I guessed Tony Hayward instead of David Cameron. Sorry Brits, I guess I am just America-centric.

12/13

I guessed on the first two. If I had given it more thought, I would have chosen Greece.

I knew Ben Bernanke was the Chair of the Fed, but wasn't sure that was his picture.

Just goes to show how much U.S. news dominates the average commercial news bulletin in Australia. 9.

I guessed on a couple of the US ones. 11/13 I got the "Speaker of the house of representatives" and the Prime minister of "Great Britain" wrong.

I found the questions quite easy.

After having no clue at all about "current americana", and therefore been randomly guessing on questions as "Speaker of the house of representatives, Sotomayor(OK, I know her by name and function, but didn't know her face) and so on, I actually got 11/13. I'm stunned of the laws of probability!

and apparently in the Egyptian election, because many can not read, they are using symbols of soccerballs, sunglasses, tanks etc. to represent political parties.

who will we vote for? Elephants, tanks or soccerballs?

9. I haven't watched a news program in years. I got the things wrong I should have. I had no clue on any of the people pictures except for Steve-o.

I missed:
Thinking about Congress, do Republicans currently have a majority in…?
Who is this?
Who is the current Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives?
Since the start of military action in Afghanistan, about how many U.S. military personnel have been killed? Around…?

Not overly surprised by what I missed.


In Canada we vote for colours: Red, Blue, another Blue, Green, Orange. And no, red isn't communist.
