Science Quiz!

Since it's cheating to read the article first, I'm linking directly to the quiz.  Thirteen questions and any scientist worth their degree should get them all correct (excepting accidental clicks), and I was somewhat pleasantly surprised to note that in the actual national poll 7% overall notched 100%, also the ones that were most missed are not terribly distressing.  It was also nice to see that education improved the responses to every question (except maybe one, but that had a very high correct response rate). 

There were a couple questions that the responses to them implied better understanding than the public debate in those areas would imply exists, but I kind of wonder if the wording were a little different if the responses would have been worse.
