    it was fun anyway, thanks to roger for that!

    but of course, it was all just a troll and you really jerked my chain, didnt you???

    No David I did not jerk your chain. I just thought it would be a fun thing for anyone to try. The 8 seconds did seem to go by rather quickly. According to the testmaker, if you took the test a second time the questions were the same but in a different order. As I said, on the first time I got an 18 and the second 30. I guess I answered some questions too quickly instead of taking a little more time the first time around.

    That is most likely a major factor in the test. Some people respond better to an audio question while others respond better to the visual.
    I know I have a faster reaction to visual vs audio. I can file rally course signs much faster if I read the #'s on the signs vs someone else calling out the sign #'s to me.

    depending on where your from and which decade your from...Ice and Crank are the same thing...

    out west the most common term for meth is Crank...I know if your from the Hawaiin (sp???) Islands it is refered to as ICE...ICE actually refers to a VERY pure form of Meth....

    The third term was also if I remember a common name for meth, but it is a southern name I think....

    I got that wrinkled look when I read it and then figured I would wait to see question 2 and figure out if the test is a sham....I think it was as mentioned...a goofy "pop culture" "cross generational" 'hodge-podge" of STOOPID questions.

    I went back and took the test a second time since my memory was that they asked about "crack" (cocaine), not "crank" (crystal meth). .I was right. Questions seem to be the same each time. The order of questions and answers changes.

    The question was another name for methamphetamines. The possible answers were ice, crack or smack. Only ice is a name for meth. NCA thought the choices were ice, crank or smack, in which case he would be right that there would have been two correct answers since both ice and crank are terms for meth.

    true, but you were still mistaken. the question did not ask about coke/crack, it was a possible answer. the question asked about meth. - thats where the question mark was. you said "I went back and took the test a second time since my memory was that they asked about "crack" (cocaine),"

    i see what you intended to say, but you did not say it well. remember, we arent as smart as you so you have to be more precise so we understand your superior intellect from the get go.

    whatever would we do without your divine guidance?
