Put Niels Bohr for the binomial nomenclature inventor (WRONG country [Bohr is Danish?!], wrong invention)

I went to the wrong end of Africa after racking my brain for 13.3 seconds and quickly wrote down Libya for the triple-border question.
If it is any consolation, I put Bohr too even though I was 100% sure it was wrong. And for the triple-border question, I put down Egypt, then decided Ethiopia was a better answer, then when I had erased all but the 'E' I realized I did not have enough time to type Ethiopia, and ended up trying to type Egypt, and ended up with Eg. You know, that great African country Eg.

Soooooo ... that was the kind of test this was for me.

Oh, and I literally put Bohemian for the Liszt rhapsodies.

I definitely don't feel bad then. I had no clue what they were asking, either.

Looks like I got right at 40 tonight.

Taking this off youtube I got 40(ish?). Said cummerbund instead of vest and icee instead of slurpee, other than that the ones I missed I probably wasn't going to get.

Used to manage a 7-11. It's definitely a Slurpee.

Ugh, "woke"... These dang kids need to get off my lawn with their newfangled terms.

I remembered Linnaeus at the last moment and misspelled it horribly in my haste, but I think I managed "linnnaess" which I believe is close enough!

Didn't RTFQ and said Hungary and To Kill a Mockingbird instead of Hungarian/Go Set a Watchmen

Missed two wordplay Qs (the first one about Disraeli and the 'red fed' one)

Missed two TV questions...total blank

Didn't pick up the TOM and said House of Commons instead of House of Lords

NHO Pantone.

To me, that was by far the easiest of the 3.

So, ummm, what's the 4 -letter word for injustice or whatever that clue was?
Woke. Thank god I'm on Reddit enough to know this stuff ;)
Wouldn't have come up with that word in a month. Thanks.
I could have had a year - never heard it in that context.

Well, if agrajag is correct, I got 45 this time! NHO #2, WAGged "to the angels", but only got "to the an" out, counting it as a miss. 29 I just said "Susan G. Komen" (which was enough in itself to type in 15 seconds!), thinking it would be counted.

No way I was missing the Slurpee question, Winnipeg is known for consuming the most Slurpees per capita, and every year for the past at least 17 years (I've lost track) we always get an award for selling the most Slurpees in North America.
