    A bit unfair on us non-Americans (well, I mean the quiz, not because we're not Americans (which is actually a good thing))
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    Pretty interesting to see an observation one for a change instead of the standard IQ tests but the fact that a lot of the questions were biased towards American culture doesn't make it a good exam to use on an international board.

    This seems very similar to the IQ test set to both american & foreign soldiers by Gould in the early 20th century.
