What Do You Really Know?



So, imagine you get sent back in time. Do you actually know anything useful? Those people won't care how to set the page layout in a word processor. Try this quiz, and see if you'd help the cause. I missed one.

I got 5 correct. Hmm...I'd only advance civilization only to the 15th Century.

Six right. Looks like it’s the 15th century for me too. I’m particularly embarrassed that I missed the kiln question for making cement.

I'm even less help; I'd barely make it to the 10th century. Sorry, Dude..

By guesswork, I'd get to the 15th - but that's bs because I didn't know the answers to any of them. No surprise to my bunch.

10th century. but that wouldn't be my motivation for going back. i'd just like to witness some of the more innovative breakthroughs of each time period.

well, based on these comments and my own (15th century) i vote we send you back.
Remember that Star Trek episode where Kirk has to figure out how to make gunpowder?

Soooo, there'll be a bunch of us stranded travelers there in the Renaissance, looking kind of sheepish as Stucco Rex heads toward Edwardian England? Bollux.

Curt, if I knew anyone who knew all ten, I'd have bet on you. Nerd! (accusation rooted in pure jealousy, you see?)

I always knew I was on this planet as eye candy, this quiz just proved it.

I can however write with my perfectly pedicured toes..now that's useful.

7 right, but a couple were guesses. I'd be screwed without the multiple choices. That won't stop me from doing a victory dance to taunt Slag though.

I guessed on the majority of them but some of the questions were worded so they gave the answers away. But I guess guessing counts for something; I got 9 right just like you.

How many of these were discovered by a random guess anyway? You don't have to KNOW everything, you just have to know how to think and have a basic understanding of what makes sense.

TTQ- As far as I can remember, I always favored unusual over eye candy. Then I met Schmoopie and got a two-fer. This isn't to take anything away from what are surely your beguiling feminine charms.

Jilly- Much of live involves multiple guessing, like dealing with the fairer gender for example. Did I say that out loud?

Nic- "just have to know how to think"... Yeah. That's a common enough skill...
