    Default For fun ... are you as smart as a kid in 1912?

    http://www.nationalreview.com/
    In the middle of the page there are a series of slideshows. One of them is a student exam from 1912. I wonder how many kids today could answer these questions.

    I went to school considerably after 1912, and while I knew some of the answers, I was surprised at how many I didn't know ... don't think I ever knew!

    Gerry,
    I knew a few, very few answers. I would have flunked this exam. I also went to school considerably after 1912.

    Kind of off-topic, but still fun. Can you imagine if this woman was in charge of Medicare or SS?
