Ok, compared to I'm sure many university intellectual types I'm probably a moron...but still, I mean how could you miss some of these questions? ...Seriously?

Considering that U.K. (and many other nations) follows USA like a river follows a sea, you'd really have to NOT be paying attention to miss some of these.

Others I am just astounded at the lack of basic cognitive ability to deduce and put 2 and 2 together.

Lastly, most amusing is how some are practically hit over the head with the answer and STILL miss or can't guess. rofl
They wouldn't know what a snake was if it slithered up their toilet and bit them square in the arse. I'm dying of laughter at some of these.
