At the US State Department's website I came across the Foreign Service Officers Test. Cool, maybe my kids can use this to gain access to the gateways of power and so assist me in my quest for Total Global Domination [tm]. As if. I took part of the practice test (until I got interrupted by the dinner bell). It's kind of cool. It asks some fairly obvious stuff, along with some not so obvious stuff. Along the way I encountered this question, which I thought was interesting, since I seldom hear it phrased this way.
