Didn’t think it was terribly hard, although deciphering the antiquated grammar/question formulation, the jumbled resolution of the pic, and unfamiliar abbreviations of the arithmetic section made it unnecessarily difficult. And the grammar section, which I never pay attention to and think it’s a lot of hoopla over arbitrary nonsense.
Everything else I passed with ease, more or less.
California would be in the largest states of the time, I think.
…Judging from what you’ve said, though, I’d have to agree w/ F_alk that your History instructor is an out-and-out Nazi!!! No one in Germany (without a shaved head & white bootlaces) would DARE publicly advocate something like “union w/ the territories ‘lost’ in WWI/WWII”! That borders on Nazi-type hate speech (and is definitely right-wing propaganda), which is illegal in Germany. Makes me wonder why he came to the US to begin with–you should ask him!
Well I dunno. If you asked me (when he wasn’t busting my chops), he was one German I actually liked. I don’t think he was a Nazi, because even as a European, he liked to put down Europeans himself. Always making jokes about German/French women with hairy armpits and how stupid they were for not listen to President Wilson after drinking coffee. He definitely wanted to expand Germany, but not in a shooting way – more like annexation. And he goes back to Germany every year, so it wouldn’t be like he was deported or anything. I think he came here to America because he likes it here (well except, like F_alk, he likes to put down American beer and coffee)
Maybe its just the way you put it but this whole account sounds distinctly creepy to me. “Sea shanties in Deutsch…”? WTF? “Germany can’t do anything about it 'cuz they’d look like Nazis…”? Like what exactly does he have in mind here? “If the Jews (BTW, Germany still has Europe’s lowest per-capita Jewish population; you figure it out) take action, Germany can’t be branded as Nazis…” OK that is just too wierd! What’s with this guy–how old is he? I’ve GOT to know!
For age, he’s a baby boomer, I reckon. But as I said before, he said that Germans are especially kind to Jews and want them to return to their homeland. As for the other comment he made, I can definitely see Germany getting branded as neo-Nazis if they try to restrict the flow of immigration. Remember all those German jokes from Family Guy?
P.S. TG– I’ll let it go this time, but don’t EVER compare Sonoma & Orange counties like that! Did we produce Ronald Reagan? Pete Wilson? The Duke? The Mighty Ducks?;it’s been said that everything bad that ever came from California came from Orange County. If you are from there, I will exclude you, but I assume by the fact that you put “L.A.” in your profile you are not…
What I meant is that many people expect Orange County to be this “model” of American suburban life, when in fact, it isn’t (or at least not today). It’s just as messed up along with the rest of California. Anyways, be glad you live in Santa Rosa. 🙂 And I happened to like Pete Wilson! Those stupid Republicans screwed us over, when they didn’t choose him! Now, I’m stuck with a “second stringer” to make due against Davis! :x
I view myself as a patriot. I love my country, I was willing to give my life for my country, TWICE, I lost 80% of the use of my left leg in defense of this country, I destroyed 3 vertebrea in support of this country, and I’ll vote for any ignoramous I think will slash government spending.
