I got a 19...

This one is just for fun, but good luck! It seems like basic info, but do we really pay attention to detail in our day to day life? Some of these are easy, some are tricky. No cheating allowed! That means absolutely NO looking around (even at your own self), no getting out of your chair, no using anything on or in your desk or computer!

There are 25 questions based on US information/knowledge concerning things we see every day or have known about all our lives, but the average person on gets 7 correct!

Write down your answers as you go. REMEMBER - NO CHEATING!!! BE HONEST!!! Look only at this screen and your piece of paper as you write down your answers. Check answers (a link is at the bottom of this post), AFTER completing all the questions.

Then, leave a comment here letting us know your score and, if you have one, a link to your online journal where you place your results.
