9 out of 10 for me, too. I had to guess on 2 that I wasn't familiar with.

8 for me (I had to guess on 3 but got only one of those right).

There is a little link on the page after you take the test to show the answers and the ones you got wrong.

Some of those I've never seen so I suspect they are twitter related since I don't use twitter (or FB)...I guess then...Throwback Thursday...it's used that often that it needs a short form :S

I didn't attempt to take the test (what's the point of guessing to increase the score - you know them or you don't) I knew 3 of 10 and one I learned on Justified - a character's name (YOLO). Guess I need to go back to school or at least move into the 21st century. Second thought: Nah! YMMV
