ok, since this quiz was clearly designed by a yankee, i'm going to enlighten ye folk: all classes are easy classes in mid-atlantia. we piss our childhoods away in montessori school, for the most part. (unless we're psychotic and invent our own languages so we can converse with our other personalities more easily, in which case we get homeschooled until swarthmore will consent to take us off the school district's hands.) my homeland alone has a collective IQ of 11 1/2. our average SAT score is 430 COMBINED. it's not like we spend our formative years reading wittgenstein or anything...christ.

16. The second syllable in pajamas sounds like:

The A in jam
