Right!
Well, not everyone can remember every event from over a decade ago. Many of those things fell out of the public eye soon after they occurred or came out, so your score is understandable in a way. At least you got a few easy ones!

Right!
You got a respectable amount of these, good work! 2000 was fifteen years ago (almost sixteen), so some of those memories are going to skip through the cracks. Definitely an understandable and ultimately still impressive score. Good work!

A+, Millennium Maestro

Right!
Your memory of the year 2000 is as vivid as your memory of what happened yesterday must be. You should take some of our similar quizzes on years much further back into the 60's, 70's, 80's and see how those treat you!
