Whatis is right.

Even if you ignore the term soft science as being purely colloquial, Anthropology is a social science academically.

My "mkay" was genuine. I'd never heard of "soft" science before.

I guess to clarify, on the last page when I said "I'm not majoring in anything science" I meant any "hard" science.

You shouldn't be proud of any result less than 12/13. No matter what you major in, this stuff is high-school level.

I disagree... I learned most of this stuff from personal research. However, I do live in Utah, and we're the lowest-funded state (concerning education) in the country... So I guess that makes my case invalid :P

1,2,3,6,8,9,10,11 are high school.
4,5,7 are elementary or middle.
12 and 13 are if you pay attention to the news in America.

isn't it basically instantaneous?

but wouldn't it be mad hard to recognise any delay because it would be so minor anyway?

it is confusing shit.

but the minor delay does happen over a quantifiable timescale as compared to light in a vacuum, so 10000 times the speed of light is the current clocking.

also i just took this test again

i gotta say that this is high school level shit, but only if you really paid attention in high school science. i don't blame people at all for not knowing some of these things, but they are things you can work out logically: like the example of a chemical reaction question or the one about sunscreen. i'm not even a science buff by any means. i find it kinda interesting but i abandoned the study of science at the age of 16, but i still got 13/13. i just took it again to remind myself of the questions and i found myself thinking about them again because i forgot them and i'm stoned, but i still got 13/13. this isn't a hard test, but i think that's why it's good for testing an all-round knowledge of various scientific fields. it's a test of uncommon knowledge.
