    If I hadn't made the quiz I would have scored a 6 or 7

    And two of those were lucky guesses. :H

    ps. Is that a typo in the answer on #6? "He lack respect for politics".

    Also 5... with a lot of guesses. The only things I was sure of were the presidency and the “biggest blunder”.

    I got only 2/12.
    I think I know him pretty well except several facts being asked in the survey.

    In Question 12, Einstein's name is spelled wrong.

    Ein-Shtein, Ein-Shteen, Vat's the Difference?

    8/12, having recently read the biography by Isaacson

    4/12 oh yea. That's pro baseball status right there. Only one was a guess, although I didn't know he was in the mustache hall of fame, but what else was it gonna be? I mean, look at that mustache.

    I got 10/12. My mistakes were in the "Hall of Fame in 2015" and "Einstein became an American citizen in". For a moment I had the correct option in the American citizen question but changed it in the last moment! :frown:

    8/12 ; when I had to guess, almost all wrong.

    3/12 I'll be in the corner with the dunce cap crying... LOL!

    I was correct with Nobel year, λ blunder, and his big head.

    8. Not too bad for how many I guessed on. :woot:
  17. Apr 29, 2015 #16
    7 correct, no lucky guesses. I'd be interesting to do one on Feynman or Dirac. No one knows anything about Dirac.
  18. Apr 29, 2015 #17
    I do! :woot: And I read a great article about him a while ago... I will see if I can find it again, IBB...
    Edit: It wasn't this article I read, but it is a similar one, a review of the book "The Strangest Man": link.
