Some of them were guesses, but still, clearly I read too many fantasy/sci-fi novels.
Just shared this on Facebook, hope you don’t mind.
I’m thrilled–please feel free to share!
And sometimes I think people who come up with medical terminology read too many fantasy/sci-fi novels. Or maybe vice versa.
68. Not bad considering all the guesses. 🙂
Not bad at all. I’m impressed that you, or, for that matter anyone, actually took the test. Maybe I should have made it harder. 😀
I read through the terms and was surprised at how many I knew. I didn’t take the actual test to see my score (’cause lazy). However, the word placenta reminded me that a friend with a four-year old daughter recently told me that her daughter has decided that she likes the name Placenta for a girl and that someday she is going to name her child Placenta. I mean, why the hell not? If you’re going to give your kid a noun name like Cotton (which was a kid at my son’s preschool) there should be nothing wrong with the name Placenta. Or Labia for that mater.
I never thought about it before, but Placenta does sound like a nice name. It sounds very nurturing. If I met someone whose kid was named Cotton, though, I had have to ask, “So, is he named after the 18th century Puritan minister or the Texas rock band?” Because surely they were thinking of Cotton Mather and not the fabric. Naming your child after a fabric would be so wrong, unless you have twin girls and name them Polly and Esther.
I didn’t score my answers, but I did reflexively utter “Gesundheit!” after reading several of the test entries.
That’s a winning answer.
