In the last few days, a link was posted at the Garden, to the test that has to be passed to become a US Citizen nowadays, assuming you are otherwise legal to do so. Apparently you have to get 58/96 to pass, and seemingly about 92% of people do so. To be honest, the only thing I want to know, isup in how 8% failed to pass it! The request, mainly aimed at Americans of course, was to do it blind, without studying up in advance, but I took up that challenge anyway. You want to know, I got 83 right. would have been 84 if I hadnt tackled it late at night, and misread one question! And seriously, if I was taking it, to start a new life, I’d study, so probably get one or two more at least, with effort.
So come on US, let me in, to live and work lol! So alright, maybe its not quite as easy as that, but I can keep on hoping. I know there are at least a couple of people trying to help my dream come true, so fingers are crossed, and maybe a few other things as well, lol!
What really amazes me, is the miss rate. Alright, I’m pretty intelligent, but I found more than enough that was ‘pretty easy’, to score at least 58. And 8% couldnt do so, yet wanted to be US Citizens, quite amazing to me.
The music, what could be more apt under the circumstances. than the Star Spangled Banner? And showing total bias, and sucking up to Kate, what better version to use than the one from the Fenway Park 100th Birthday celebrations, played by the Boston Pops. And if that doesnt work, well, I dont know…lol
