I missed three, and one of those I should have remembered. I guess that means I am old. Or watch too much TV.

17, and there was no way I could have ever gotten the three I missed, but then I’m from the tail end of GenX so most of these are well beyond my time.

Wow! I impressed myself with that test! I must have been glued to the television, as my dad oft said, and also must be years away from developing a mass of senile grey matter.

Scored a 19! The missed item was #10. I don’t have an inkling at all where that comes from. Can someone clue me in on that?

Maybe I can make it up with an extra point….. DaN, is your new avatar, Rob Reiner as Michael ‘meathead’ Stivic in ‘ALL IN THE FAMILY’?
