You must be well under the age of 60, because you didn't know the answer to most of these historical questions! Worry not, just because you aren't quite old enough to remember the culture of the 40s, 50s, and 60s, doesn't mean you're not still a total trivia pro. Try again soon!

Right!
We highly suspect that you're a total baby boomer! It's obvious that you remember the events of the 50s and 60s as if they happened yesterday. You're either around 60 years old or fast approaching, because you know the facts everyone 60 and over should know well.
