I got 42. I know all the important justices – the chief and the women. Haha. I got all the old men wrong.

And I completely butchered the “civic text” section with the quotes. I’m ashamed.

Otherwise I got everything correct. Apparently I need to review famous speeches and not mix them up.

I got 15 πŸ™‚ So pathetic, I better stay here in Australia!

I just dont get why I have to memorise lines from speeches and inaugurations to be citizen-y enough. I know what they are, but I can’t memorise my 10-line vows, let alone multiple large documents! Also the pictures of Justices, does every American know these people by face and name? May I ask why?

@howsweetitis:  That was a bit of a trick question. Yes the olympics were held in London, but so were the (spoiler).

@FutureMrsHallam:  yeah I find it strange too.  But the picking of justices is a big deal in the USA. I couldn’t name our Australian justices, much less recognise them, and I think that’s how it should be. The process is (mostly) not politicised here, they’re just unelected public servants doing a job.

On a related note, mayors are pretty unimportant in Australia too, so I can recognise the mayor of London but now my own.

@howsweetitis:  53! Citizenship with distinction πŸ™‚

Since I’m from a family of immigrants, all the older people in my family had to take an exam such as this in order to become citizens. I was under the age that was required to take the exam, but I remember the adults studying for it. I assume that most countries have such an exam before naturalizing citizens.

@paula1248:  Me either, and I agree – I prefer our justices being un-politicized, non-elected etc. They should be there to just do their job, not be famous ahaha πŸ™‚

I do know our mayor (andthe mayors of the shires around us) but I live in country Vic, and I probably wouldn’t if I lived in a bigger city. They also don;t make speeches and things on the steps of the town hall πŸ˜‰ (that could definitely just be a movie thing, though)

50, and I am embarrassed I didn’t do better, as the quiz was not that hard…

@Rachel631:  Yeah those ones would be hard for a non-Aussie. And I’m impressed that you know about the Anzacs and 1901 πŸ™‚

@paula1248:  Oh yeah, we do that in school! The world wars are a huge part of our history course. I was also in the army for ages, don’t forget… and DH is so obsessed with military history that he insisted on going to a world famous tank museum… on our honeymoon.

Luckily I didn’t mind… because I was REME at one stage, I was interested in examining the construction!

@howsweetitis:  Ah, the (spoiler) was held immediately afterwards. There was a huge fuss because Chinese tourists and participants were issued special leaflets (by the Chinese govt) on cultural sensitivity training to prepare them which weren’t exactly so… sensitive! Google that one.

You would know the second one if you had ever watched the state opening of parliament on TV… although admittedly very few people do, either within the UK or outside it!

I still think that there are some very good scores all around the board here…
