RE: Department of Homeland Security's Citizenshiptest
I want to be the Secretary of Weather when (and if) I (ever) grow up.

I like the Canadian question about : "Who was Sir Louis-Hippolyte La Fontaine?"

b. A champion of democracy and French language rights and the first leader of a responsible government in the Canadas.

Does that mean they had irresponsible governments until he got there ?

So during the unfortunately substantial timedifference, I looked online for the citizenship test that's been mentioned on TV shows.

Found this one.
http://www.uscis.gov/citizenship/quiz/le...elf-test-1

Did all 4 tests, all answers combined together, I got 90/96 correctly.
Not bad for a dutch guy.
No studying.
No Google or wikipedia used.
Now you try.
I did the first test, and got 24/25 questions. Stumbled on the "federalist papers author" question. And…. I am also Dutch (but living in the USA).

Hmm... Consider I could be Canadian with my 80%. I think the appeal for me was the Canadian history seemed somewhat more exotic.

The US questions were way too easy but then, I only took the 25 questions... good thing, too; boring! Shy

It occurrs to me that it seems kind of odd there would be a test to decide if one has the lawful right to live somewhere and contribute to a society. How can a test measure one's love of a landscape or appreciation of a cultural aspect? What if actual aliens came from another planet ... would we make them take a test? Blink

Instead of a test, I think I would rather know from a prospective citizen what they might contribute. In some cases, it could provide a more measurable notion of a person and be more useful to the progress of a civilization.

I want to live in a civilization where everyone is equally educated and foremost appreciated. I don't think it's too much to expect of my nation. I want be updated by my garbage collector about the graphic novel she just completed. If I call for an electrician he should be able to discuss the history of an artwork I have in my living room. I should be able to exchange ideas with my coffee barista concerning string theory.

Or maybe... I should make my prospective country take a test to see if it measures up. Dodgy

84% not that bad sadly, but I think that anyone who lives in a western country should have that score
