Episode 148: Are You Smarter Than a 1912 Eighth Grader?
On this week’s SlightlySauced, we take a break from the doom and gloom of our last couple episodes to take a quiz. Some historical society in the United States has released a grade 8 test from 1912, and we decide see how our knowledge stacks up against that of old-timey school children who were probably taught in a one-room schoolhouse. Unsurprisingly, the knowledge required to navigate the world at the turn of the 20th century is somewhat different from the stuff that’s in our heads, and hilarity ensues. We also take a voicemail from Ernie and discuss how jealous we are of his access to gigabit internet.
