    I totally bombed this one. I got 8/12 on the Feynman quiz, 10/12 on the Einstein quiz, and a 4/10 on this one. Huh, looks like I need to start reading more about Newton.

    4/12* Sorry.

    I obviously know few details about Newton. Did well on all the others (Einstein, Feynman, LHC) but only 4/12 on this and most were guesses, mostly wrong. Of course, there is a giveaway answer in there ... (but that one I knew anyway).

    "Of course, there is a giveaway answer in there"

    there is two actually , if you read the Roman Numerals correctly, you know the answer to that question and an earlier one.

    5/12 guess most, and 10 gives away 2!

    8/12, no guesses. My awesome Newton knowledge comes from...

    ...reading the wikipedia article some weeks ago when I was looking for some specific detail about his life. :woot:

    Can't say I've ever studied the man's life very much... his work, yes, somewhat.

    8/12, I am competent.

    @ Greg: Given my name : WWGD: What Would Gauss do? , please give me plenty of time to prepare for any quiz you may prepare on Gauss. I guess my 8/12 score prevents me from using WWND as a name.

    Sure, it may take me some time, though, I know relatively little about him (blushing of embarrassment). And I know nothing of the technical aspects of uploading and administering the quiz.

    Great quiz. I managed an 8/12. Nice mix of scientific and more historical questions.

    4/12. Failed :).
