    Default If interested take this very short history quiz

    For fun take this very short history quiz, they brag that to pass it you must have a PhD.
    I found it a bit too simple and not long enough to make that determination, at least by my ancient view of what a PhD should represent.
    My results from the test shown below. And I have no PhD, never went to college, but I have never stopped reading and history was my favorite subject....--Tyr

    A+!! You definitely have a PhD!!
    A+!!gettyimages
    You aced a test that only Americans with a PhD pass. You are highly intelligent, well-read, and passionate about history. Share the news with every American you know.

    As a general word of warning - these kinds of quizzes are used a fronts for data hoarding companies that use the quiz as ways to get permissions granted to store whatever data you agreed to sharing in order to access the quiz. They can later sell the company (and all data attached) to an interested buyer.
    If you also agree that an animals suffering should be avoided rather than encouraged, consider what steps you can take.

    The very instant I see these things and asking for FB permission, away I go!

    You would know better, and I haven't done it it a long time, but isn't there a way to go through all the apps and what not you gave permission to, and then you can go there and remove all those pages/apps?
    I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat…You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength God has given us, and to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs - Victory in spite of all terrors - Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.

    ** I just clicked on settings - then "Apps and Websites" and I see the list of things I gave permission to!

    A+... wasn't hard.

    I deny all requests for personal info, just as a rule of thumb.

    The test should be called: Did your ninth grade school fail to educate you? The vast majority of this was covered in my ninth grade American history class. I also got 20 out of 20.
