I appear to have gotten 44/50, pretty much my usual. A couple I should have had and blanked, a couple no chance, and a couple I could have guessed right but didn't.

Is it distillation or fermentation? I think I might have gotten exactly 35 with distillation, I had a brain fart with Kelly Ann Conway. She was in the news today too...Also missed easy neuron and Arno (I have been there too...)
"boiling a liquid & then condensing the vapor" in the clue seems to point only to distillation.

If neurons was correct, I got 35.

Ditto. What's really frustrating is that there were several more I knew but just couldn't get out in time. Only a few i had no chance on whatsoever.

Thanks, Big Daddy!

One possible correction: "Our" in #26. Our/hour are homophones.

Also, the answer to #36 is "La Raza".

Isn't synapse the process and neuron the cell? I could be wrong. FTR I'm taking tomorrow's test.

Synapse is the gap between the neurons.

Seemed harder than usual, mainly because I started by missing 5 of 19 (and it felt a little worse) before 16 in a row put me back on track. A slow finish put me at 40. My last 7 or 8 tests have all been 39 to 42, so I guess that's what I end up with no matter what test.

In the context of having given her husband's first name, they should. Still, I put Barrett Browning.

What's the verdict on 'ours' instead of 'our'?

Argh...I thought I got 35, but that was when I thought Harrison was the right answer. Now I see I only scored 34. That is painfully disappointing.

This is what I have as the correct responses. Feel free to correct.

26. Your

or 'Our'
I had to check back on the question to verify this, it says "homonym of a period of time". If it said "time period", then your/yore might be a perfectly cromulent response, but for "period of time" I think it needs to be our/hour. But who knows, they could be generous!

Ooh... the way I remember that question being phrased, I think either would be acceptable? But I may not remember it right.

Likely to be a BMS on the show, but I think the online test questions are scored somewhat generously.

I'm kicking myself for missing chalet given that there is a Chalet Street right down the street from my childhood home, and in a neighborhood with multiple Swiss-themed street names.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

Doesn't technically match the clue as "a period of time" points to singular rather than plural but on the show they generally don't neg for a singular/plural disagreement unless the category is something like "4 letter words" or "ends with -ur", so you should be fine here.

I'd neg it for the exact reason you stated.
