I got a 64, but I did mispell a couple and they took points of for that. I'm happy with my score, I can't believe I could actually knew as many as I did. But, I know that is only because I read poetry. So, to all the people in my life who tld me poetry is a complete waste of my time, BLAH.

Exactly!!

Well done. I got points taken off for spelling, which is a but unfair because the spelling used was not the traditional spelling, and there is no exact, agreed spelling of transliterated Greek names or words, but most people know the traditional spellings used since the 16th century.

Well, I know what my strengths are not now. I got a 35% - Not a visual learner. Maybe I missed the class on Greek sculptures...I kept thinking of Roman names. Put me at the bottom.

Yes, I missed Aros because I could only think of Cupid. :(

Thanks, lol. I've only watched Clash of the Titans 50,000 times since I was 8 years old. :D

90 %

I must admit I am surprised I still know them all (well, almost all ;)) quite well.
