"Are you one of those people that get called stupid all the time just because you put a cat in the microwave once (hey, it's not like it's in the manual right?) or don't know when World War two ended?" Well take the test and find out how stupid you are!

It's not the worst result achievable with this test, but it's still pretty stupid. Don't feel bad though, at least you can say 10 to 15 percent of all the people who took this test are more stupid than you. Sad part is some 80 percent can say the same about you.
Tough break huh stupid?

I got "Truly Moronic" too. And some of those questions aren't phrased right, have two answers, and so on. It isn't a very good test.

Mine said “Not Stupid”, and being that the questions were stupid I'm not too excited.

Average dumbass

You're an average dumbass. The good part here is that you're average (it could be worse), but the bad part is that it's at being a dumbass.
It's not much to brag about actually. Well maybe in your case it is.

Hm... that's unpleasant. Not good when the question just fades out halfway through, though... I think whoever made that must've been somewhere around moronic.

That test is definitely one of the dumbest creations I have encountered on the internet. (Though I do mostly avoid such things)
I find it curious that the test will happily announce that you are average if among other things you tell it that you can explain the theory of relativity.

I agree with you, though I got "Truly Moronic" too. so you shouldn't listen to me

Please explain clearly, succinctly, and in terms that can be understood without an extensive background in physics, Einstein's General Theory of Relativity.

People trying to make a career out of this, please stay away. Thuryl, please stay away also. We know that you can not only explain it but probably point out all the misunderstandings we are likely to commit.

Does this also exclude me? I am not intending to be a professional physicist, but somehow I think I've become a subset of Thuryl in people's minds.

I put 'a bit' for being able to explain Einsteins theory of relavtivity. I can, kind of.

I claimed I could, which is probably what raised my score. I can comprehend it, but I would not be able to explain it very well, and would likely look foolish if I tried.

A side not: If no one else answers it, or even if they do, I would like to hear Thuryl's explanation.

A brief explanation.

After reading it, I decided not to bother tryin to explain it, so I will, like Dolphin, wait until some one else does. Then I will know.

Misspelling "dumbass" doesn't exactly help your case.

As regards relativity:

http://www.muppetlabs.com/~breadbox/txt/al.html

Einstein's theories of relativity explained entirely in words of four letters or less.

(The above isn't really a simple explanation; you need a basic grounding in physics to figure out what it's even talking about. It's still fun if you can make sense of it, though.)

It was a typo.

Average Dumbass was my rating.

Oh well.

Theory of relativity = all motion is not motion unless it's measured relative to something and light travels at the same speed relative to anything and everything. My best explanation.

The first part doesn't really have to do with Einsteinian relativity (it's Newtonian), and the second is not quite correct.

Also, neither of those statements include General Relativity, which has to do with accelerated motion.

Having just gotten through trying to explain General Relativity to non-physics-majors for money, I am happy to be left out of this challenge. It would be so nice to have a senior year class of physics majors who would be interested in doing it right, and actually understanding the subject, rather than just absorbing some half-assed caricature.

Of course most of what I think I know is also a half-assed caricature of some sort. That's the nature of knowledge. But it's just so very hard to figure out how to make the best possible caricatures, and right now I'm tired of the effort. Purism can be such a relief.

As succinct as you can get:
G_mu,nu = 8 pi T_mu,nu
G_mu,nu = R_mu,nu - 1/2 g_mu,nu R

Well, you won't get the right answer from them! The sci.physics FAQ explains lots of this kind of stuff, and a lot more.
