    Thanks for sharing Cezar!!! And Sam, I agree....if they had asked other questions it could've been embarrassing for me.
    I'm right around the 5 mark as well...

    I was uncertain about whether or not a skater can drill a hole in the ice and fall through.

    Better indicators:

    You still debate the outcome of the Ladies Olympic event... from 1980.

    You can name all the Soviet/Russian Olympic Champions, as well as the Americans and Canadians, from all skating events, off the top of your head.

    Although a piece of skating music may seem original, you recall that a junior used it 20 years ago.

    You're very excited when skaters from countries like Brazil qualify for the Olympics.

    You have actually kept up with the goings-on of Charlie White's and Jason Brown's hair.

    You care about Meryl and Maks.

    I would also add:

    You watched all of "Tessa & Scott" or "Ice Diaries" and care about what happens to those people long after.

    You attend your local symphony's performances based on whether the music was used in a memorable free skate.

    You dismiss bad fashion on gossip websites by saying "that's so figure skater!" in design, and can match the bad outfit to a costume.

    You still think the best piece of gossip in sports in the last twenty years (besides Nancy vs. Tonya) was the Maia/Sasha/Pasha love triangle that ended with Maia bashing Pasha's head against the bar at, of all places, Spago.

    You still debate the following Olympic results: ladies 1994 / 1998 / 2002 (and in 10 years' time, 2014), men's 1988 / 1992 / 1994 / 2010, pairs 1994 and 2002, ice dance 1994.

    Your YouTube subscriptions include at least three dedicated to only figure skating competition and exhibition clips.

    8/13 on the other test and 2/6 on this one: NOT EVERYONE IS INTO THE MERYL AND MAKS THING, GUYS. Quit it already.
