There's a cute little logic test here...

http://www.think-logically.co.uk/lt_answers.htm

I went back and forth on one question, then finally clicked on the wrong answer.

Except maybe it wasn't incorrect. This guy below convinced me our answer was right, so I'm going to say I aced it. :rock:

Tragically, your link directs everyone to the correct answers.

80% in the first, 100% in the second. Therefore, the harder, the better :)

Tragically, you didn't bother to cut the "answers" part off the link, but decided to only bitch. So, lazy ass, here is the link to test 1:

And here is the link to test 2:

Thanks for noticing that I am smarter than I look. :P
I have heard Mr. Stein say that Logic will only get me from A to B though. :?

Happy Splatterday! :D

That was exactly what I was wondering.
I just re-gifted.

My comment wasn't supposed to be taken as rude or hostile or even sarcastic.

It was just a comment.

Perhaps the "tragically" part gave the illusion of a snark response?

I am sorry that because I got such high marks, everyone else is afraid to take the test. 8)
Or else they think it's a test for dummies.
It could also have been a fluke, but I did not cheat. :evil:

Wait, I bet you guys did take it and all got perfect scores and just don't want me to feel bad. That's sweet. [B-o]

Oh and Mr. D, next time say Tragically Hip, that usually works best for me. :D

I missed one question in the first test, so 93%. In the second, I missed 2 questions, so 87%.

SPOILERS
The test instructions explicitly says "deductively valid," which is why the water question is invalid. It is inductively valid (in fact, "past observation predicts future observation" is a textbook definition of induction), but that's not what the test is about.

## The Questions I Missed: ##
Test 1, Question 8 -- The assumption said "could" and the conclusion said "should" and I read them as the same word. I should've worn my reading glasses.
Test 2, Question 2 -- I didn't distinguish between "no proven need to" and "must not." Sloppy reasoning on my part.
Test 2, Question 10 -- I failed to make the distinction between "procreation happens" and "creatures are motivated to procreate." My bad.
END OF SPOILERS.
