I thought I guessed chlorophyll... must have spelled it wrong. Still did well. Etymology always was interesting to me.

Anyone missing Brontosaurus was never 4. Also? Average score 9 is just embarrassing.

it took me a while to remember Brontosaurus. I think I tried dinosaur first.. which means terrible lizard, I think? Then tyrannosaurus even though I knew that was wrong (tyrant lizard). Then I got brontosaurus. But I probably learned that when I was five or six not four.

I knew I knew what it was, so I tried the first thing that popped into my head, which was "Godzilla." That doesn't work, by the way. Then I tried dinosaur. Then finally remembered Brontosaurus.

Same here. I first tried dinosaur, then godzilla, then trex. I just knew it was some dinosaur-ish thing.

I find it hard to believe that nearly 90% of the people who've taken this quiz somehow managed to skip directly from age 3 to age 5. Perhaps there could be some other explanation...

Apparently, it was a case full of mostly-Greek (and some Latin) rooted words. Sure, go ahead and rest it. Just don't leave it unattended for too long, or it may have to be treated as a capsabombus.

OBJECTION! Your Honor, this is ridiculous. The prosecution has not even given a viable statement. This is hearsay and does not belong in court, and is irrelevant to this case, which the prosecutor, sadly, has not found it necessary to establish. If they have no charges, the defense must be innocent, and therefore this gathering is moot. Your Honor, I rest my case, which, as it must be noted, is as established as can be under the circumstances.

Automatic translates to "willing to self-perform." Willing to move is not exactly the same thing as moving.

I think I would have done better if I had known whether it was Latin or Greek. I'd get stuck on something such as viridis for green or visum/vista for view, and then couldn't think of anything else.
