    Edit: 11/13 You scored better than 91% of the public, below 4% and the same as 5%.

    Got 10 right. Pretty good considering I never watch the news. Not sure why I'm supposed to know who the yahoo ceo is but I'm pretty sure she must be the best looking CEO of a fortune 500 company.

    Got 12 of 13. The only one was the DJIA graph one...

    Also sad that people don't know what Egypt looks like.

    I live my life on the rim. How am I supposed to know that more women are graduating? Or about stupid stuff like the Dow Jones and supreme court justices. My brain can only handle so much and right now it's full of GTA stuff and my fantasy football roster.

    Yeah, but that's because I've seen those graphs before, know what they mean, and know that Europe and Japan are getting a lot older.

    I thought Nigeria seemed too obvious an answer so I went with Israel.

    I did, just on deductive reasoning and stereotypes. Nigeria is a relatively poor African nation so I figured the odds of them having a lot of older citizens was pretty small.

    10/13, I missed the Nigeria, swing vote, and Dow Jones.

    I picked an upward trend on the Dow Jones, just not the right one.
