I think taking it in 10 minutes it unreasonable though.

I'm an intelligent person with great reading and comprehension skills and I'm unsure if I'd be able to accurately get every question right in the ten minute time frame. 

On another note, I feel as though we should give this test to individuals before they can vote on Gay Marriage... I think we'd have a better outcome in the end. lol

I can imagine that being hard for uneducated people in the 60's, but that was some fun for me to read/do!
