Did some reading on the Richter scale just recently actually after the terrible events in Nepal. I was interested to find out that the Richter scale is not really in use anymore despite the media using the term. Most use the moment magnitude scale. Not that this information is in any way pertinent to this quiz...

sort of like the 'F' scale with tornadoes. Since the mid 2000s, meteorologists have used the Enhanced Fujita scale. The storms are now rated EF0-EF5, but likely because of the popularity of the movie Twister, media coverage still refers to them as F0-F5 storms.

I know a number of their hits and like to sing along when they're on the radio. I was even playing one of their songs on my guitar just yesterday and was reading about Stevie Nicks recently. Their album names have never really come up in any of that.

It's so sad to me that kids these days don't know Rumours

by Fleetwood Mac. I listened to that on my turntable back in the day... Oh man I'm really showing my age here.... God I'm getting old...

The fact that only 43% knew the classic album, Rumours, tells me that most people doing this quiz are under 30. 🤣

I'm quite a bit over 30 but Rumours was well before my time! Great album though, and I've even got it on LP somewhere.

Ritalin almost got me. I don't know if it's the same elsewhere, but where I live (BC Canada) we usually pronounce it "Ridalin," with a "d" sound instead of a "t." Kept trying different spellings with a "d", and then sure enough, because I've been burned with this "t" vs "d" sound before, I tried a "t" and got it right. Never seen it written out before! XD

Same! I tried one D, two Ds, but it never even occured to me that it might be spelled with a T.
