I failed to remember which one was the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, though I did at least pick a current Justice. Also, I never could remember how many Constitutional Amendments there are-- I said 23



One of the Thirty-two (or maybe Thirty-four....)!

95% - I had to guess between 23 and 27 for the number of amendments.

The fun part of the quiz was humming the Schoolhouse Rock song to get the first words from the Constitution.

Missed being a citizen by just one question.

I like it better here, thanks

Great quiz, it's inspiring me to learn more about US government and politics.

I got 17/20. While I'm not looking to emigrate at the moment, it's nice to know I have options...

However, I will admit that I did do a two year course on American Politics while at school - without that I would never have scored that high.

Congratulations to the Canadians & Brit who did so well. I guarantee most of us wouldn't have done anywhere near that well on your respective tests! (Which is another thing that displeases me about the default public school education I got.)

And I'm a savvy American : On a good day, I can name all 10 provinces, & even some of the provincial capitals! (Woo-hoo. Where's that "rolls eyes" icon?)

Some of those questions are stupid anyway. Knowing that there are currently 27 amendements to the Constitution is pointless (knowing what those amendments are about is slightly less pointless). Memorizing by rote the first three words of the Constitution is not at all useful. Knowing useless historical information about whether Maine was one of the first 13 colonies, and that it was the Lousiana Territory that the US purchased from France havs no bearing on whether you're a good citizen in the modern United States.

I completely forgot about free comic book day until Sunday night. I went to a comic shop yesterday, and ended up wasting all my money on the Lone Wolf & Cub trade paperback, and the Astroboy one.
