If you correctly answered:
  • At least 13 questions, award yourself an honorary doctorate. You can choose your specialty. For those of you who already have a doctorate, a second one can’t hurt (as Ned will attest). Plus, you’ve earned yourself a seat on the Einstein Meadows magic bus. Go to the Head of the Class!!

  • At least 10 questions, you’ve earned yourself a seat on the Einstein Meadows magic bus. Great job!!

  • 6 to 9 questions, (tsk, tsk) it’s time you reread the book. You are in danger of being listed in Brunnhilde’s dreaded Hall of Shame.

  • 5 or below correct answers:  Reread the book immediately. You are in danger of being placed in the community stockade. Remember in the Southwest, it gets mighty hot. And don’t forget about the scorpions, tarantulas, rattlesnakes, mountain lions and other unfriendly critters.
