Aced it.  But then, I took five science courses to graduate HS and have active subscriptions to Wired, Popular Science, Discover, and Scientific American.

Hey, I was being honest with my score. I couldn't decide what defined a chemical reaction and rushed my answer to the most common element in the atmosphere.

A Pew Research Center poll found nearly half of Americans hold the false belief that TARP was passed under President Obama, while only 34 percent know it originated under Bush.
"Oh yeah?" Bush replied. "50% of the people were wrong."

Heh. If the atmosphere held a lot of free hydrogen you can bet it would be hot. As in, on fire.

I got 13/13, although I admit I hesitated over the sunscreen question.

Hey,i was kind of right....if it was set alight,it would raise the temperatures Tongue

I hesitated on a couple because i thought they were trick questions(especially at the beginning)...the Nanomachines one,i thought it was too obvious so it would be wrong,LOL...same with the Ultraviolet one


Some things i didn't know but pretty much worked out/took the obvious route-the 'taking too much antibiotics=causing antibiotics resistant bacteria' one for example

13/13 here as well, helps to be a chemistry technician as well as a radiation protection technician, I knows me some radioactivity and atom structure along with the composition of air.  I think I would have missed the fracking question if one of the choices had been oil, that's what I thought is was for.

They do use frakking for oil as well.  I know it's widely used for that in my home state of ND.

12/13 - The fracking question was a pure guess though, since I'd never heard of that, outside of Battlestar Galactica. I answered the Atmosphere question wrong, sadly.

I knew this because they are Fracking a few miles north from me,and although I don't think its been confirmed people are complaining about it as they think that it causes small Earthquakes

13/13, but it felt a little "fixed" as a number of questions dealt with geology and pharmacy, ironically two subjects I have a bit of experience with.   SCIENCE!

If only today's pharmacogenomics final would be along similar lines as the questions in this quiz.  retard

After Thursday's final in chemotherapy of infectious disease I'll have finished my first year of the Doctor of Pharmacy program.  Three more years to go.  Then hopes of completing a residency in clinical care for a year (although that will at least be paid, albeit at a lower salary point until completion).
