The trouble is that any such test would probably be based on what you know rather than what your ability to think.

Some people can store huge amounts of pointless statistics, etc,  in their heads - like the kids who can list every football player in the world, or tell you how many times Lewis Whatisname achieved pole position in every race he's ever driven, but can't be trusted to go shopping without getting lost or distracted.

We are expected to judge politicians now on what they say they are going to do in the future.  Also to forget the damned stupid mistakes they made in the past.

If we chose authors based on what they might do, as opposed to any established track record they may have,  there'd be an awful lot of crap books published.  Come to think of it...

(Who does his best to be apolitical, but can't help being amused by the sheer volume of garbage turned out by all sides.  Since they were foolish enough to televise the workings (?) of government it's become just another game show for morons.  A farrago of foolishness.  An empire  of inanities.)

   If the thought of 'Tactical Voting' bothers you then perhaps this will ease your mind.  This is 100% true. 

   A friend of mine recently wrote to her electoral office asking what to do with her mother's polling card as the elderly lady has recently gone into a home.

   The answer, which may not surprise many of us, no matter which side we support in the political bullshit.

   No capacity is required to vote.

I watched a video a few years back about a young lady who makes proper laminated wooden propellers for aircraft.  It was the family business and she gradually took over from her dad.

It's a good earner because there's plenty of vintage aircraft still flying, or being restored.  She admits that some of her orders are for collectors who just want a wall hanging, but she makes them all to the same standard, fit to fly.  You can tell she prefers them to be used properly ;-)

The fact that there's many an ancient Dakota still working around the world, hauling passengers and carrying freight off dirt runways which would make modern aircraft break, rather confirms Jo's statement.
