By the way -- it's a good thing it wasn't a math test. I meant 145 years, not 125. I could stick with the 125 because it coincides with the end of the Reagan era, but I'll give the nation credit for still thinking fondly about Lincoln's words -- even if we disagree about pretty much everything else.
You accuse us of getting distorted facts from Fox, geez... take a look around Kos or Huffington Post can't get any further left than that! You need to stay away from those sites - they're doing a number on your head!! I suggest watching some Fox to balance it all out.
There's no way I can believe Civet got an 87.8. He doesn't understand the importance of the Gettysburg address, can't figure out what "surrender" means, and doesn't seem to have a lot of depth behind the rhetoric.
The only way I can see his score going that high would be if he pulled up Wikipedia in another window while he took the test.
What does "gauge" mean anyway? As used here gauge means the number of round lead balls the same diameter as the inside of the barrel (aka the bore) that it would take to weigh one pound. It takes 12 lead balls the same diameter as a 12 gauge barrel to weigh a pound. The smaller 20 gauge would require 20 balls of that barrel diameter. The larger bore 12 gauge would require 12 lead balls of the bore diameter to weigh one pound.
In general the number of pellets in a shotgun shell...
