I got 16. That campbell soup one was tricky, I missed the gold color. I cannot believe I missed which color stripe on the American flag came first, thought for sure it was white, paper clip threw me too, thought there were only two bends, matches question threw me too. Fun though!

24. I thought I was clever to get yellow and gold on number 4. Who knew there was blue on the Campbell's can?

I got 22. I missed:

#4. Blue? Oh well, haven't open a can of Campbell's in a long time.

#7. Don't smoke.

#12. What the **** is a VHF TV?

Even though I got it, I don't think the seven dwarf question qualifies as a test of ones observancy skills because watching "Snow White" isn't a part of supposed regular activity for most people. Driving, using a phone, turning on a fan, looking at cars, etc. is.

I have a feeling that refers to my grandma's day, when tv channels only went from channel 2-13.

Here's a descrip:

Very high frequency (VHF) is the radio frequency range from 30 MHz to 300 MHz. Also known as the meter band or meter wave as the wavelengths range from ten to one meters. Frequencies immediately below VHF is HF, and the next higher frequencies are known as Ultra high frequency (UHF).
Common uses for VHF are FM radio broadcast at 88–108 MHz and television broadcast (together with UHF). VHF is also commonly used for terrestrial navigation systems (VOR in particular), Marine Communication, and aircraft communications.

correct, there`s no VHF TV now, that was way back in the old days of thermionic valves (vacuum tubes I think the Americans call them).
now all is UHF for terestrial TV broadcasts.
415 and 625 lines I think are the standard protocols used AKA (NTSC and PAL).

although you DO get the occasional Ham Radio TV-DX signal on VHF TV (if you`re lucky enough to still have a working model).
