Hey, I only got two wrong. I'm a little surprised by that and I have to admit I guessed at one, even if I guessed right. I really didn't know it was Joe Namath. :)

Lil Mouse said...

Sandy said...

I am now officially old - 100%!

Kellan said...

So funny that you and I both have a post today about brain cells - as with most questions that are over my head - I just throw my head back and laugh hysterically until I pee my pants. This was fun, though - I was sure I got the Flinstones vitamins answer right - NOPE!

Have a good day - see you soon. Kellan

ChrisB said...

Well it seems I have lost a few brain cells as I only managed 70%

susan said...

I got about half right...it was fun remembering the ones that I did though. (I'm not quite to 50 yet!)

sirdar said...

I got about 60% right. Brings back memories. The problem with exercising your brain is deciding which equipment to buy...

dawn said...

It would probably help if I were over 50, and if I had a good memory. I think my short term memory is a bit better than my long term. I am sure that will change when I am 80.
