    ----Answers----
    1. Thirteen
    2. Alaska and Hawaii
    3. An Amendment
    4. The Star Spangled Banner: "Oh say can you see, by the dawns early night, what so proudly we hailed, at twilights last gleaming."
    5. Nine! So no even votes
    6. Secretary of State (I think, somewhat of a guess here, its early!)
    7. William Rehnquist (guessed on his first name!)
    8. Tammy Baldwin and and and...Russ Feingold.
    9. four hundred thirty-sumthin
    10. Britain, France*sigh* :) , USSR latter half of the war, Australia(cant forget them, helped us kick the japs around!), those were the main allies. Other countries like Brazil declared war and aligned with the allies but didn't send forces, just supplies.

    I swear I didn't cheat. I'm just a nerd. Besides I probably got at least one wrong.

    I don't know anyone else my age that could answer all the questions correctly. There probably isn't a person in this whole neighborhood, regardless of age. So I get the point! :)

    I don't know how old you are but you did very good..
    Number 6 is "the Speaker of the house" now thats a scarry thought. Remember ole' Newt?
    you also did good on the allies Britan, Canada, Austraila, New Zealand, the Soviet Union, China and France.

    Now about the cheating part I know you did not cheat I detected no keystrokes to a search engine. However, we need to talk about what you did later, does your mother know???? lol................... :p ................. :cool:

    Very good, you got them all!

    a. It's actually Dennis, but the first name doesn't matter.
    b. It's President pro tempore of the United States Senate, whom is currently Ted Stevens (R) of Alaska.


    Now here's a really good question; How many females participated in this "test" that AKA Arizona started?

    I sent the same test (without my extra credit questions) to everyone in my office. There are 6 females and 2 males (including me). Only the other male even bothered to answer any of the questions. Could history and government be weak points for females?

    I have to say, since most of my friends are male, when they start talking about the History Channel, tanks, wars, guns, etc.... I tune out. I rail against anyone who says that girls aren't supposed to be good at math and science, but history...meh. I can't get excited about it. Government, though, can be more interesting and I'll gladly yap about that. (y) :D
