Because apparently I was too busy passing notes, reading Teen Beat under my desk, day-dreaming about my high school boyfriend Kenny, or perhaps picking lint out of my belly button to have paid attention. As evidenced by the DISMAL scores I received on the Traveler IQ Challenge for the world in which we live. I seriously, seriously, SERIOUSLY avoid using the word "retarded" due to its incredibly un-pc and offensive connotations ..... but considering this site gives you an IQ score after each test, and since Wikipdeia states an IQ below 70 is considered mentally retarded .... well, I can pretty much do the math on my own shabby state of knowledge. Something tells me Jeopardy won't be calling anytime soon.
I thought I would kick butt in the North American test, but forgot how stinking big Canada is, and that my knowledge of Canadian geography is perhaps, if possible, just as terrible as my knowledge of world geophraphy.
The mocking little "try again, you loser" button is addictive, though, so I hope all of you enjoy these tests this weekend like I have. And thanks to Kristina in Ohio for sharing them!
