Found this on MSNBC and thought it would be a good educational test for everyone.

Good Luck scored 94%

After reading the first question, the survey is completely uselss:

1. Three of the following ARE crucial to terrorism preparedness, but one is NOT. Which one is not?

A. Creating a family plan

B. Stockpiling antibiotics

C. Becoming knowledgeable about types of potential attacks and responses

D. Making an emergency preparedness kit

94%, but the survey is flawed. Where's the info about guns?

The military always told us once exposed to a chemical contaminate to stay put and await de-com. MSN wants to you flee the area to spread the chemicals to others. I think it depends on how likely you were to have been exposed. If the area is 400 yards away then I'm running away. If the area is the courtyard at the building I'm working in and I'm in the courtyard then no. If you avoid the vapors/droplets and stay put to see if you get violently ill I would think that would be better than spreading the chemicals around the area.

I didn't know about the government's ready.gov web site.



In the military you have protective gear, so you are safe in the contaminated area. Stay put trust your mask and protective suit. Average civilians have no equipment; they will die if they stay in the area. Scored 100% but NBC was one of my specialties in the military.

This question is misleading, A and B will not make water safe following a chemical or nuclear attack.


9. THREE of the following ARE ways to find or create water that is safe for drinking. Which ONE is NOT?


A. Boiling water for 3-5 minutes

B. Adding 16 drops of bleach to each gallon of water

C. Draining water from your radiator

D. Draining water from the hot water heater, if the hot water heater has not been damaged

I agree.
It is more of a "choose the best available choice" type of quiz.
Safety is not guaranteed.

Guns and self-defense are verbotten. Look at ready.gov. Use the search feature. I could find no reference to guns, firearms, self-defense. I guess the 'sheeple' don't need no stinking guns.

94%. Missed the one about the last resort when you're trapped under debris.

94% I mised this one:


True or False: If a disease could become an epidemic, then it is always contagious.
True is not correct.
The answer is false. Anthrax, Botulism and Salmonella are all examples of biological agents that could create a non-contagious (i.e. non-communicable from infected person to healthy person) epidemic
