  7. Hi Bob,
    I got 10. I am either very young....or being from UK put me at a disadvantage ....or is that an advantage as it makes me seem like I'm younger?

  12. I really like this kind of test. But I only got 6 right. Almost the lowest score here. Perhaps because a) I grew up in UK; and/
    b) because most of this was way after the time when I took much notice of this kind of thing.

    For example what exactly are M&Ms? And I can guess what NFL means but it has never meant anything to me

    1. Malcolm, you make a very good point. Many of the references are American, and I only know the answers because of the American TV stations we had access to. I'm sure I wouldn't be able to do a comparable test using UK equivalents.

      M&Ms are like Smarties (do you have them in the UK?) or Cadbury mini-eggs. Small chocolate candies covered with a coloured candy coating. Sometimes also contain a peanut.

    2. I am sorry I put my over the pond friend at a disadvantage I thought every old folk new the answers to the questions.

      Do you have questions similar to this one I would love to try my hand at your quiz.


      thank you Hermione for explaining what m&m's are

  13. I think it was 17....I hate standardized tests. I did cheat and ask hubby the sports ones. So even though I am old, I stink at certain questions.

  14. Hi Bob. I'm Canadian and I got 16, so it's not just America. I am surprised I got the Bob Dylan one wrong though. 30 seems really young an age not to trust anybody older than.

  15. Well hello there Duke glad you stopped by.

    I was amazed at the difference in our cultures between us and our neighbors across the pond.
    I thought every one knew about M&M's :(

    1. LOL. We all know that HOH's don't cheat so it must be that I am really old but not as old as a tree. :)

      Is it even possible to spank or what ever you were referring to to a HOH? That's inconceivable WEG
