    This test isn't easy. The web site reports that college professors average about 55%; the average American 49%. Take your time and see how you compare to both these averages as well as my own score.
    http://www.isi.org/quiz.aspx?q=FE5C3B47-9675-41E0-9CF3-072BB31E2692

    I got 79.87% correct. What's with these college professors? And the average American must be candidates for Leno's Jay Walking bit.

    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    There were only two questions requiring an educated guess. One was about international trade and specialization and the other had to do with the efficiency of markets (that one I used process of elimination so I didn't really "know" it).
