I missed 5 of the questions. Not too bad for being born in 75.

Numbers, 1,7, 10, 11, and 13. I said Richie Valens (I think that was his name) And bras for what was burnt, it could fit, but its a stretch.

13 isnt quite correct on your answer. It was Richie, Buddy, and Richardson.

The day the music died.

I missed 6. Not bad for a guy that doesn't remember what he did last night.

Strangely the only one I couldn't get was the very first question. I was not a Lone Ranger fan and it was a little before my time. When I read the answer though, I realized I once knew that and should have gotten it. I'm very strong with slogan type things and 60s trivia so most of the rest were pretty easy.

Not a fair test. true test would be what is the answer of 5 + 5 on the 1 scale--like the computer logic.

Of course--I do hope you know that 5 + 5 on the 10 scale is 10
ok I will make it simple, how does the computer store the letter a or 0

I got them all except the draft card burning. I just said bras but had a bad feeling that the women's movement was the bra thing. I missed the draft card burning' I was in Vietnam.

A pretty good case can be made for Mick and the Angels killing fans at Altamont.
