Science Saturday: Are You Scientifically Literate?

Here's a fun quiz from the Christian Science Monitor: Are you scientifically literate?

It's a fun little waste of time and a refresher on high school science I haven't yet forgotten (joules and ohms and horsepower, oh my!), though I contend that they say this constitutes scientific literacy. This is science trivia. Scientific literacy isn't just remembering facts, it's also about the right mindset. A true test of scientific literacy would be open-ended problem solving questions asking you to, say, evaluate some given data and give a hypothesis, or what have you.

Still fun, though!
