  2. Uh, yeah, a couple of nit picks. This first one is fairly pedantic, but the sun doesn't rise. The rotation of the Earth makes it appear to rise, but it is actually us moving in relation to it, not the other way around. And this one is flat out wrong. 100 Kelvin is by far the coldest temperature on that list, as it corresponds to negative 173 degrees Celsius. 100 Celsius is 212 Fahrenheit, so the correct answer is 100 Celsius.

    According to the way that quiz was scored, I am 30% unstupid, but I think I should have come out better than that.

  3. I'm with Paul. I missed the sun and the temperature one, too, for the same reason. my score was 40% as it stands.

    I got 30% unstupid too.
    I ditto the previous comments about the sun question. Still it was a fun test!! Reminds me of that show "Are you smarter than a 5th grader?" At which I would have to answer no.. ha ha.

    I'm 40% unstupid. I thought the sun question was a trick one so I didn't go with my gut.

    Now quit making quizes and go wash the dishes.

    I got 30 and I agree with the other "nit pick" comments...at least if they're in my favor, that is.
    Do you give partial credit??

  9. I'm 50% unstupid. I have to admit you got me with a few (the next letter in the sequence--didn't read it properly; the bowling--no idea, the fruit--no idea)

    However, I have to agree with a few sentiments already stated: the sun does not rise. It stays put and the planets orbit and rotate.

    Also, the shot glass: I looked up the standard size of one (since I'm not a drinker and don't know); it is 1.5 oz. 3 shots would be 4.5 oz, way over the limit. Hmmmm......

    And to argue about the Kelvin. It IS the hottest: 212 F = 100 C = 373 K. (8th grade science)
