Hey, Gord, you must be one of the folks who writes trick questions for the Regents' Exams.<G>
" 1) Who won World War II, and who finished second?"
Considering the relative economic shifts to the Axis and Allied
powers? One could argue the Allies won the battles--and lost
"2) Explain Einsteinís "Theory of relativity", " Hmmmm....Can you say, it was his BEST GUESS as to how parts
of physics might be integrated? Or do you have to get into the hybrid that philosophy/religion/physics has gone into today? Including why the speed of light can drop to 30mph in the fifth state of matter (Bose-Einstein Condensate) and even why it has been reversed? Or, why "discrete" particles have been split--and then proven to still be linked, by means no one can fathom?
"3) How many commandments where handed to us by Moses (approximetly!)"
Counting the lost
third tablet?[g] Or ignoring the one most often incorrectly translated? (There's no commandment against killing.)
had 6 Kings named Georg. The last was George VI."
Georg versus George, huh?[g]
"6) Which person does not fit the pattern?
a. The Pope
b. Martin Luther
c. Jack the Ripper
Obviously the Pope is the only one who has not somehow promulgated mass murder and violence--openly--or had it done in his name, without protesting.
"8) Who build the great Pyramid of Giza?
a. Blackwater USA
b. The Pharaos
Trick question, the Pharaohs of Egypt
were royalty and didn't build anything with their own hands. The Pharaos sound like a 50's doo-wop group.
"9) What is the starting time of the 10 óclock news"
We don't have any 10 óclock anything. But we do have TV Nooze at ten o'clock. (Apostrophe, not accent.)
Extra question to collect additional points if you think you haven`t done well so far!
"Here's a list of the countries that the U.S. has bombed since the end of World War II: "
Bonus round: Name all of the illegal military incursions that the US has been officially involved in since WW2, and then name all of the legally declared wars that have been declared by Act of Congress in the same time period. Discussion of the War Powers Act is allowed and encouraged.
"In how many of these instances did a democratic government
In the 20th Century, name the number of times that governments fell to foreign military occupiers, resulting in a border change, absorbtion, or total government
change of any sort. Civil wars, juntas, and similar domestic overthrows by force of arms may also be counted.
Sad state of affairs, isn't it?
