Congratualtions! You have failed miserably on this quiz, which means you have far too fulfilling a life to be bothered with learning trivial junk like this.
11-25
You've been stood up on enough Saturday nights to read a few Entertainments Weeklys and watch some E! Television once in a while. Nothing to be concerned about.
26-50
There's still hope. You may have thought of going to Utah to attend the Sundance Film Festival, but you didn't go through with it. Try not to think about it and join a dating service.
Over 50
It's too late. You spent your entire childhood watching old movies on the Late Show, and have missed the opportunity to develop even the most rudimentary social skills.
