Well, I guess I can't feel too badly. I correctly guessed #'s 1, 2, 3, 5, and 6. I couldn't remember what tsunami meant, but I knew it wasn't "mountain and water". Knowing some of these answers shows a persons age. If I were to ask the same questions to my kids, they wouldn't even know what or who I was talking about, much less know the answer.
