The New York Times has a "Name that Scientist" quiz. I expected, even given it was multiple choice, to get about four. I got 9/10 - I'm just good at guessing, though several faces are instantly recognisable.

I got four - the ones you would expect. Alas, leave it to me to bring down the average.

Ahem. I got three. The obvious ones *g*.

It helps to know that Neil Degrasse Tyson is black (and a terrific speaker. Look up his videos on Youtube.) Also to have seen photographs of some of the wrong alternative answers when they were much younger...

I was kicking myself for not getting him, as I have seen pix of him before ...

Compared to you, I suck, but I got 7/10.

That is the score I probably should have got.

Also 7/10. It was the women I had trouble with - apart from Jane Goodall. The one bloke I got wrong I'd never heard of, have no idea what he does.

6/10 and I've actually suprised myself pleasantly
