Science Saturday 12/1/12 Overflow Edition

See if you have what it takes to claim #1 WCF Science Geek bragging rights

Just what the doctor ordered for another slow news day; another Science Saturday special, consisting of three items left in queu after publishing last week's Science Saturday feature

1) A 14-year-old New York student was named "America's Top Young Scientist" for inventing a solar-powered water jug that changes dirty water into purified drinking water:
Leave it to a highly talented kid to do what the scientist "grownups" ought to be doing.

2) Was Albert Einstein's great brain special?  This is interesting. Read up:
Too bad they hacked it up into little pieces.  Otherwise modern science would surely have been able to reactivate it, sooner or later, no?

#1 Science Geek Challenge
3) Attention Science buffs, here's a chance to earn your WCF science props! It's a robust mixed-bag Christian Science Monitor quiz to test your overall science knowledge:
Special challenge to our WCF readers:  Your blogmeister, who fancies himself to be a bona fide science geek, miraculously scored a respectable  88% score on this... even though he hasn't slept through a college level science course in over forty years!

Try your hand at this quiz, people. See if you have what it takes to claim WCF #1 Science Geek bragging rights.

Don't be shy.  Take the test and report your score.

I just scored 45 of 50, for a 90% score.  Just put my picture right up right now, Rudi!

As simple strategy for answering four part mulitple choice questions, assuming you've studied the question you'll be tested about.

1. Read the questions thoroughly. Two out of four will be plainly wrong. Eliminate them as possibilities.
2. Re-read the (two) remaining questions again, looking to select the one that's the best, which converts the whole test to a true/false question.

Assuming you know the subject fairly well, you'll do better on multiple chic tests if you employ this simple stategy.
