How did you do?:
  • If you got all 211 right - You've been hanging around me too long.
  • 161 - 210 - Very impressive, 70's "guru" -- you have disco balls and lava lamps in your bedroom.
  • 111 - 160 - Nice job -- you own "Saturday Night Fever" and you are a 70's "guru-in-training".
  • 61 - 110 - OK, but you spent most of your 70's free time watching "Brady Bunch" episodes instead of listening to AM radio!!!
  • 11 - 60 - You need to get rid of all those Pearl Jam CD's!!!
  • 0 - 10 - You are un-American!!!!!
