Nice little quiz especially if you’re a volcanologist and the quiz’s outcome says you’re a volcanologist :-)
However, there are a few little typos in the questions, the most significant being “Tambor” (question No. 5), which should read Tambora, actually.
Let’s hope there’s only one Jindal out there, and that even this one will quietly disappear from the scene, after his latest “gaffe”. There should be only so much ignorance displayed by politicians in public without being punished.

I got 9 out of 10. The 10th was a 50/50 for me, and I guessed wrong. One tricky question (for me) was about the “recorded history”, and how they define that, though I got it right.

Nice quiz. I got 17 out of 20. I can’t believe I missed the “makes 80% of earth’s surface”. Forgot about the ocean (d’oh!).

In that case you’ll have to punish every politician in Washington, including Obama.
