You have 8 minutes to correctly identify each US president based on the general category of their cause of death and the year of their death. Some examples of what would be included in each...Infection: Cholera/Sepsis/Dysentery. Respiratory: Pneumonia/Asthma/Tuberculosis. Heart: Heart Failure/Heart Attack/Coronary Diseases. Brain: Stroke/Paralysis/Neurological Diseases. Other: Natural Causes/Disease or Failure of Another Organ. Note- Assassinations are grouped by the ultimate cause of death(so if they died by being shot in the head, then it would be under Brain). Let me know if the time is okay, if I should include the specific deaths of each president in the answers, if you think I should put a president into a different group, or any other errors. Thanks and enjoy!

great quiz. maybe less time. 2 minutes less
Oct 14th, 2009 at 06:13 GMT
i think assassination should be its on grouping. also pneumonia and TB are forms of infections, so i think the quiz is somewhat incorrect by having an infections group and having people who died of infections like those in other groups, maybe just list every cause of death individually?

I was not aware that Jefferson, Polk and Taylor were assassinated.
Oct 14th, 2009 at 06:21 GMT
Jefferson was assassinated? when did this happen?
Oct 14th, 2009 at 06:24 GMT
It should be fixed now. So, adapt directions for new categories. Basically, infections is now spread between assassinations and other.

Fun quiz. It was pretty easy to guess how Taft died.

I liked this quiz! If it can be done, it would be interesting to have the "others" give the actual cause of death after you've typed in the name.

really needs to accept last names

No cherries and milk for taylor?

I always forget poor Garfield was assasinated.

I think 6 minutes would be enough time. As it was, I had more than enough time to guess all the ones I didn't know (which was more than half).
Jul 27th, 2010 at 06:43 GMT
I also agree...lopping off at least 1 minute would be a good idea. I had 3 minutes to ponder which President I was missing (was sure I had typed in Fillmore...so much so I didn't review the list...)

it took me 4:28 to basically guess on every one. I filled in the assassinations, then went in order.
