Just took this quiz to see how I rank. I had more knowledge than 75% of Americans. How do you rank? Since you all have 200+ IQs I expect you'll get a perfect score.


Edit: Many of you did pretty well. I have to be honest, I was surprised when I saw that so many Americans must have scored so poorly. Like many of you, I was pretty sure I was wrong on the two answers that I was incorrect on.

To a few, I have to assume there is some level of accuracy based on who it is attached to.. ie: The Smithsonian and Pew Research.

I got the same result but I'm too stupid to figure out how to do a screen shot on my phone. LOL
