Inventing the past  OCT 13 2009

As stated previously, I love this kind of thing:

If you were to travel 2000 years into the past, how useful would you be in jumpstarting technological advancements? This 10 question quiz will help you figure out your technological usefulness.

I got a 6/10, which is probably more than I deserved...the invention of "new" technologies is not multiple choice. I wouldn't have the faintest clue where to begin in actually making concrete or steel from scratch. (via ettagirl)

Update: Phew, I'll just wear this shirt when I go back. (thx, runyon)
