That was not the question lol. Are you smarter than an 1912 8th grader? There is a lot of stuff on there (mostly the facts) that I have no idea the answer to, and I am a college graduate.

I have a master's degree.  And, no I couldn't answer all of those. I was just commenting on my observance of the article pertaining to what I know.  I've taught 5th math, 6th math, and 7th math. That was the first thing I noticed. Guess I will keep my thoughts to myself.

No...you don't have to keep your thoughts to yourself. Don't be so defensive, I was just teasing with you, hence the lol :)

The math, yes, because I work in accounting in the construction industry and crunch numbers.  I use a calculator though.  Honestly I could pass most of it.  I don't know wtf kalsomining is though.  Anyone?
