17/22! Not bad for someone for whom english is not their native tongue :) I should ve gotten parry and arrogant aswell. Would not have gotten gerrymander derrick and cirrus (though that one i have heard of, but could only remember cumulo nimbus (and just had to look up spelling, I wrote cumulus)).

Particularly proud of garrote :) and carrion ( I think the people around me would ve know those two the least)
