Test Yourself....How Panic Proof Are You?
During the 1950s, government officials were very concerned that, in the event of an atomic attack, law and order would break down irrevocably as the nation dissolved into widespread panic and hysteria. In its publicity campaigns the Federal Civil Defense Administration wanted to frighten people sufficiently to encourage them to take part in drills, but not to incapacitate them with fear. The following government-sponsored quiz appeared in the August 21, 1953 issue of Collier's magazine as a supplement to an article about human behavior during nuclear attack. It was intended to help readers from becoming "victims of panic." Click Here to take the test.

That's so cool! And I got 110.8 (which means I'm panic-proof apparently)

Apparently calling me would be a pretty big mistake, which didn't really surprise me as the test itself stressed me out
Your score is : 47.2
A score of less than 50 means you're likely to panic in an emergency. You're not very likely to panic if your score is between 50 and 70. If it's between 70 and 90, you're panic-resistant. Above 90, you're as close to being panic-proof as a human can be. Men should score a trifle higher than women.

39.9. . .I guess I'm a nervous reck if there's ever an emergency.
Because I am a woman, I must make unusual efforts to succeed. If I fail, no one will say, "She doesn't have what it takes"; They will say, "Women don't have what it takes".

First off, the "fill in the 0's" hurt my trigger finger......uh index fnger, I meant.
Interesting, the way it calculates your score.
Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.
