    I got a D!

    Jenny,

    I got a “D” and I am so mad about it!!! I always thought I excelled when it comes to math and science. In the end when I knew I was doomed I just angrily answered the last seven questions only taking 1 millisecond to think about the answer and of course I got them all right! Maybe If I had been mad for the whole test and just answered the first and most obvious choice I would have done better. * sigh *
    I’m pissed off! Well, I tip my hat to you fair science goddess hailing from the Vancouver area! 🙂

      It’s all about answering on instinct! or something… I may just have a memory for random facts, I do fairly well at trivia games too. 🙂

        Trivia is not my strong point!

        Well, I deexcel (a word?) at Trivia Games so thanks for giving me an “out” for my less than stellar performance! Some of the questions I thought were pretty silly. Like the difference between a “meteor”, “metoroid”, and “metorite” I mean comeon!!! This is really silly and not delving into a persons understanding of scientific concepts. But some I overthought and made some really dumb choices. For example, about the snakes rolling into a big ball to conserve heat that was my first thought but I didn’t select it because snakes are coldblooded. Then after, I was thinking the rules about heat transfer exist for all objects whether organic, inorganic,
        warm blooded or cold blooded. I wanted to slap myself after! And I got the Rose reflects red light only question is wrong, instead
        answering that Red is the only color is absorbed. Then after, I realized if it “absorbs” the red color then how does the “red” light
        reaching my eye come from! That is a Homer Simpson “Doih” moment.
        Oh, well! Can I retake another test to heal my shattered self-esteem?
        That is why I rarely take these tests! You have everything to lose and nothing to gain! hahaha
