lets see how old you are

A 20 question quiz so get a sheet of paper and number it 1 to 20. Multiple choice questions. I missed one...#11

First you get with the horse, then you get the horse with you.

I missed 4 & 5 but got #11 right. So how old does 18 out of 20 make me? I hope I fell out of the Methuselah range. LOL

R.I.P. JC 5/19/85 - 12/9/14. You made my life better.

I lost interest because the darn thing took so long. Seriously, make it an online quiz that I can take in five minutes and check my answers in five seconds ("Get out a pencil and paper and write your answers down"? Are you kidding?). I think my impatience with the archaic medium makes me somewhat less old.

I fast forwarded it and got 14 correct and 6 incorrect. I am no where close to being baby boomer age but I do like a lot of music from that era so I got many of them due to the fact I know the music even if it isn't from my generation. The Bob Dylan one is actually wrong in this quiz as to its origin, it was Jack Weinberg that said it. I read it in an article and remembered the age he made the statement about. You can look it up and see I am right even though I wasn't even born yet when he said it, I read the article many years later.

@AndyTheCornbread I believe you. That is the one I missed I choose anyone who says "Trust Me". Have got bitten by that one a few times.

@JCnGrace Yea you are more of a modern classical play

@Tiny lny seems like we both were not into Dylan that much. LOL

@ACinATX patience is a learned behavior. As you get older you tend to have more of it as you don't want to rush the final curtain call.

@Foxhunter while the questions were for an person who lives in the U.S. I suspect we American's would not do good on the same type of questions for a person living in the U.K.

@boots well if you think about dirt it has somewhat always been here and will be here after we all are gone. So that is ageless...

My guess is that we oldies could do way better at most general knowledge questions than a lot of the youngsters!
