17, btw question 9 is wrong. 87.5 is the lowest number on FM (which is what I guessed)

See, that's what I thought, too. Stupid answer key.

In that case, then, I got 16 right.

The one about the fan is kind of subjective, too, because the fan in my room, it can spin both clockwise and counter-clockwise.

I knew them all, but that is because I did this quiz like a month or two ago out in Cali. :)

I got 18 of them right.

The lowest channel my old radio would get was 87.7- then I got a new fancy radio and it wouldn't go below 88- and then the one in my new car lets me get 87.7 but not 85.

Damn BASHFUL dwarf. What was he ever good for anyways?

20 for me. Yay trivial knowledge. Should have been 21 but I confused VHF with UHF. Oh, and the "pound sign" (#) is also called an octothorpe.
