Its an exercise in brainstorming. I don't recommend anyone use the whole 30 minutes or try to get all 500. Just guess as many as you can and then kick yourself when you see all the obvious ones you missed. I think 50 is a good score.

I scored 170 the first time. I wouldn't want one of these everyday, but it's a really good way to clear out the cobwebs from the brain storage files, - spring cleaning for the brain. (Or fall cleaning for those of you below the equator.)

strange, took the test twice, over 200 each time, but I think because the time is so long my sign in timed out, so my score did not count and JetPunk had me at Level 1

As a Norwegian I'm more than happy with 74, even though I missed quite a few obvious ones like Miller and Jones. I got a lot of the -son's though because of Norwegian family names. Fun quiz, 5 stars!

This is a great quiz. I thought I'd kick A on it but I only got 140/500. A real challenge! I'll rest my brain awhile and try it again soon.
