I don't see any answers, but I'm embarrassed to admit that I'm fairly certain I got them all right.

Must be true about the over 60's. I got them all as well.

I didn't want to put the answers right under the questions. I'll do another thread with the answers.

Well, I only got three wrong, thanks to several lucky guesses.

Btw, 17/20ths of 60 is 51, which is pretty darned close.

17 out of 20... and I am only 33. I am sure my score would go downhill with age. I am slowly becoming a goldfish.

- Missed Bob Denver, I made a WAG and missed.

- Missed Peter Pan... I new it was a woman, which narrowed it down to 2 - oh well.

- Missed Good night David... this one was also a WAG for me, never heard of it before.

Joanne missed only one (understandable, because she doesn't trust anyone over 10 ). One of my sons (age 28) got 14 out of 20.

Actually the "never trust anyone over 30" quote has also been attributed to political activists Jerry Rubin and Jack Weinberger.
