Oh, I should have mentioned that our beloved Leader is offering a prize to the first person who can honestly say she or he got 13/13.

So go ahead, Mystery, tell them what they've won.

I received 12 out of 13. Guess I need to look at my middle-east map more closely.

I can honestly report 13 of 13.

Looking at the results, 65+ test takers fare worst on the Euro symbol and the Twitter logo.

That 'splains it.   I'm pushing 67....in fact, I can see it from here.   

PS:  I was going to guess Euro, but clicked yen.  LOL!   

And I thought the blue bird was Jet Blue.   ....and Jet Blue should buy it from whoever has it.

 :pondering:   Not to be unduly critical but you folks, especially Truth Seeker and DCPatriot, are giving away some of the answers.

I believe this may cause Mystery to withdraw her very kind offer of a prize but I don't know for sure.

Hey....they should read the article (take the quiz) before reading the replies.    LOL!

Maybe should you put a "[spoiler]" warning in the subject line?   :patriot:

It helps when you have been to most of them.
 
BTW, from what I can tell of the results, my long held beliefs are in fact true.

Mornin' Alice. I guess all that pot smoke didn't make us stupid yet.
 
It hasn't made me want to kill my cat or jump off my balcony either. I must have some bad stuff...lol

Good morning to you 240B - I'm having a pretty good morning myself, listening to some Marvin Gaye before I head out to work.  Glad to hear you don't want to kill your cat - don't want to get ahold of that stuff.
