Dear George Mason and James Madison, Please contribute to many more quizzes. Thank you, -wasteoflawtime.

Obviously, the second amendment states that every american has the right to hang a pair of bear arms on their wall, how can that possibly be misinterpreted?
Apr 26th, 2011 at 02:54 GMT
Outstanding idea for a quiz. The plurals in the Fourth Amendment nailed me -- I kept typing "search" "seizure" "warrant", etc., until I finally decided I had mixed up my amendments. Gotta run, the 42nd Infantry is knocking on my door asking if they can crash here for the night.

The bill of rights is pretty great.

A well-regulated Quiz being necessary to the Solvency of a free Site, the Right of the Sporcle to seek and pose Questions shall not be infringed !!

Despite the fact that I'm fairly neutral on gun control, I somehow knew the second amendment far better than the others.

Um, what's with the period thing? I ran out of time typing "grievances" over and over, knowing it was correct, but never thinking to put a period after it.
Apr 30th, 2011 at 04:34 GMT
The old-timey wording being difficult, I did not perform in the manner prescribed by my expectations, nor did I correctly spell "peaceably" thereof.
Apr 30th, 2011 at 04:55 GMT
Nice quiz! It actually forces us to think about the content of the Amendments, not just the pull-quotes!
Apr 30th, 2011 at 04:57 GMT
Count me among those thoroughly thrown off by at least three plurals.
Apr 30th, 2011 at 05:40 GMT
I want to know who the 3% are who didn't get "a"
Apr 30th, 2011 at 07:25 GMT
I stopped at 69 correct, I'm not an American and have no idea what words to guess next. =(

The First Amendment
states that members of religious groups, no matter how small or unpopular, shall have the right to hassle you in airports.
The Second Amendment
states that, since a well regulated militia is necessary to the security of a free state, you can buy high-powered guns via mail order and go out into the woods with your friends and absolutely vaporize some deer.
The Third Amendment
states that you don’t have to quarter troops inside your house. “You troops are just going to have to sleep on the patio” is a perfectly constitutional thing for you to tell them.
The Fourth Amendment
states that if your aunt had testicles, she would be your uncle.
Having learned my Bill of Rights from Dave Barry, I did terribly at this quiz
Apr 30th, 2011 at 10:15 GMT
I got almost all of the second amendment, most of the first, and fairly little of the third and fourth. It shows how successful the gun lobby is even in comparison to the press. Sobering. By the way,Dave Barry was wrong. The fourth amendment only allows for your aunt to claim she has testicles without the state checking or confiscating said testicles.
Apr 30th, 2011 at 11:54 GMT
I would have gotten more, but I kept wanting to spell Congress with an f for some reason.

You mean with a ſ
Apr 30th, 2011 at 19:45 GMT
The Third Amendment protects us from quartering soldiers in our homes, unless it is "prescribed by law." Basically, this Amendment can be violated by the government anyway if a law permits it.
Apr 30th, 2011 at 23:33 GMT
@adamnvillani: So true. As a brit (and not a particularly well-educated brit), I was pretty much screwed after entering 'right to bear arms' and 'freedom of speech', aside from obvious ones like 'the' and 'a' and such.
Apr 30th, 2011 at 23:34 GMT
@zamboni: It depends on what the meaning of the word "had" is.
May 1st, 2011 at 04:16 GMT
They left out the * on the fourth amendment. (*Until terrorists scare the bejeebus out of everyone - then government agents shall have the right to monitor your email and molest you at the airport.)
May 1st, 2011 at 04:30 GMT
It was good to read these again. It had been too long since I last did.
May 1st, 2011 at 13:14 GMT
It's amazing how many people get "bear" and "arms" but don't know the rest of the contents of the Bill of Rights. =)
May 2nd, 2011 at 07:28 GMT
It's quite worrying that someone said this quiz teaches you to think of the bill's content rather than just quote it; if the constitution is as reveered as most Americans make out, shouldn't it be the content that is most obvious...
May 3rd, 2011 at 01:39 GMT
@robotos: No, soldiers can never be quartered in a private home during peacetime. If Congress actually declares war (hasn't happened for a while now, we tend to skip that whole "declaring" part) THEN the government can proscribe a procedure for quartering soldiers.
May 3rd, 2011 at 02:44 GMT
It is both troubling and comforting to know that, in the earliest moments in U.S. history, warfare was as close as the soldiers sleeping in your living room for the night. And those would be enemy soldiers.
May 9th, 2011 at 08:42 GMT
Jonnywardy -- my point was that it makes you think more deeply about the content because you have to consider every word. The content isn't "obvious" no matter how you slice it. A lot of people have legitimate debate over the precise meaning of the Constitution, and what is and is not constitutional. That's why we have the Supreme Court.
May 10th, 2011 at 00:53 GMT
this was too hard
May 10th, 2011 at 17:07 GMT
'regulated' is what the militia must be. only missed that word in the second amendment.
Jun 18th, 2011 at 05:15 GMT
I kept coming up with synonyms of words, not the actual one. On the other hand, I forgot to try 'and' and 'be' so I guess I deserve my score.
Sep 3rd, 2011 at 08:22 GMT
I missed Militia because I didn't think to capitalize.
Jan 25th, 2012 at 16:14 GMT
I can't believe I missed the word "government."
Jan 31st, 2012 at 19:10 GMT
only word i missed was "state," kept trying "nation, country, people, etc."
