Not to be outdone by Wiz, I also scored 4/10. But don't tell anyone that mine were all guesses. (>;)

.. oh so I can't count guesses Ken .. then make that 2/10 .. the other two I like to think of as "learned" guesses rather than just take a stab guesses ..

Three out of ten and one of those was a guess. I can't say that I am at all disappointed.
