While you missed some of the tougher ones, you definitely showed yourself to be a true blue hippie. Or at least a fan of that particular culture. Not too many people could remember the origins of this many hippie slang terms, so great job!

B+, Happy Hippie

Right!
You're a real-life hippie...or you at least know as much about their culture as an actual hippie would know. Some of these were pretty difficult phrases to remember the meanings of, but that proved to be no task too tall for you to knock down. Great job!
