I took the test live on Tuesday. Not happy with that score.
I took the Wednesday test later on and I got a 40. Now I wish I had taken it live on Wednesday.
Must finish my time machine.

That La Raza question seems obscure to me. Never heard of them.
But thanks for clearing it up for me.
BTW Don't you think they use al dente a lot? It was on a recent show.

Can someone explain #36 to me?
I said Labor Relations, is that correct?
This was not one of my better results. Oh well, wait until next time.

Re: May 30 2017, Adult Online Contestant Test Discussion

Well it looks like I studied all the wrong things. This was my worst performance in five years. And why did my brain not coordinate its' action with my hands? I typed in Catcher in the Rye, when I knew that Great Gatsby was the needed response. P.S. When they asked what river Washington crossed to g...

Re: Retirement

Since I have been retired for several years, let me offer some advice. 1. Even though you are retired, continue to save some money each month. 2. Don't watch tv more than you used to when you worked. 3. Find a part-time job or volunteer to keep your mind stimulated. 4. Stay in contact with your form...

The same for me. My heart leaped out of my chest, only to fall to the floor with a thud. Hey TPTB you really shook me up! I need a doctor!

I am glad that I took the test for real on Tuesday. This one was harder for me.
And once again Pop Culture was weak for me. And two questions on colleges did seem odd to me.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), October 4, 2016

As I stated before, Pop culture is a weak area for me. I knew the Trainor song, but could not get the name out. The same for Top Chef, I said Iron Chef. Never saw either of those two shows. But I still would like 20 seconds to answer. I can think faster than I can type! So I got 35 and now the waiti...

COLA stands for "Cost of living allowance". I worked for the federal government for 30 years and everyone knew it as such. We never heard the word adjustment used to refer to that acronym.

Re: Practice Test for Next Week's Real Thing

Thanks. That was fun. I got 38 because I do not know enough about current pop culture. I don't think I have time to learn very much of it now.
I guess it will have to be enough for next week.

I'm 39, just like Jack Benny. I'll be celebrating my thirteenth 39th birthday this Saturday.

I have been 39 longer than you. It is a great age, enjoy it every year!

The Chevrolet SS is not the same as a Camaro. It is a separate model. It has four doors and the Camro has two. And yes these racecars do not really resemble the public cars. With the SS they are coming close. But in the auto industry they say "Win on Sunday and sell on Monday."

I got the FJ instantly anyway, but wanted to ask, why is the "2004 disaster" bit a clue for Thailand? There were lots of countries hit by the tsunami, and Thailand was only the fourth-most affected. I remember it being mentioned constantly mentioned during news coverage because it was a big tourist...

I have seen Psycho so many times that this FJ came to me fast. Poor Janet Leigh! That must have been a lot of long days.
