manners in the victorian period

I came across this pretty cool game on the Musee McCord Museum's website that tests how well one knows how to react in certain social situations in the Victorian era.

Being the dork that I am, I played both sides.  Oddly enough, I did better as a male than as a female, scoring nearly 300 points higher on the former.  As a female I didn't know that it was more appropriate the shake hands in the park and how to use the restroom in a train.  And yet for both, I managed to be "the picture of politeness."

Try the game and post your scores in the Comments section of this blog.  :)
