    A tough one without reading the booklet first. I know they are not the same but "similar"? I suppose a guess would be 'yes'.

    It's not unusual. Really. I am a nice guy. And I like to be helpful where I can. But I don't suffer fools gladly and I tend to retaliate if someone has a pop at me, especially if I feel it is unwarranted. Anyway, this is a top half thread ..
    NO FLAMING, NO ABUSE OR ANY NASTINESS tolerated in this section.
    So I am following the "top half thread protocol".

    As Davis says .... it's a shit way to examine somebody's citizenness .

    Your score was 17 .

    Missed out on getting your Passport by only one !!!!!

    The Bessemer process asked for 2 answers and that cost your Citizenship Certificate .

    It's truly crap isn't it ? And massively unfair.
