                I've made my mind up. I'll be sure in the future to tell people, as a rule of thumb, "Long time no see," upon meeting them. If they respond with hysteria and reach a tipping point, going off the reservation, I'll say, "Boy, you have drunk the Kool-Aid and are clearly a moron or maybe just a basket case. It's no can do on your mumbo jumbo, so don't spaz out make comments from the peanut gallery..."

                    Can You Answer these 40 History Questions?

                    Trivia facts, historic milestones, ranging from Sports to US History to Nature and Celebs, can you answer these 40 history questions correctly?
                    http://www.historybyday.com/brain-tease/can-you-answer-these-40-history-questions-2/?utm_source=ya&utm_campaign=brmsquiz-D-US-hd-ya&utm_medium={deliverychannel}&utm_content={tact i cid}&utm_sid={campaignid}&utm_term=&utm_referrer={ publishername}--{domain}&utm_eid={placementid}--{site}&firefox=1

                    I'm sorry. I should have taken this before posting. The second question shows this is a shoddy "test"; QUOTE: 2. Who was the first man to orbit the moon?

                    Next Correct Incorrect Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin was a Soviet pilot and astronaut. On April 12, 1961, he became the first human to orbit the Earth on the Vostok 1 spacecraft. This was a significant victory for the Soviets in the space race with the US. American cosmonaut Alan Shepard was second to make it to space less than a month later.
                    ...................................
                    When question(Moon) and answer(Earth) don't match, suggests we're getting some poor results out of our current education system that produced the persons that made this "quiz".
