    Same here, and I should've gotten six.
    That Pink Floyd song just popped in my mind when I saw the answers.

    One of the few things I know about him is that his name is "Hawking", not "Hawkings"!

    7/12, but the worst thing is I didn't notice his name misspelled

    Greg, I think it's time you started seeing someone about your tendency to refer to yourself by a title. It's just not healthy...

    Since each question has 4 options, a random selection will be somewhere near 25% or 3/12.
    Since actually answering the quiz carries the (very real) possibility of a score lower than that of a random sampling, I choose to go with my best option.
    So I'm sticking with 3/12.
    Yay me!

    Wow! I am a lucky b*****d!
    6/12 by pure guesswork.
    I am off to Vegas, suckers!

    I know about "A brief history of time", "My brief history", "The Grand design", "Lou Gehrig disease", "Hawking radiation", but none of them comes out, only guessing in Harry Potter question.
    1 out of 12.
    Hm..., :frown:

    You have just wasted your luck on this quiz, so the probability of being a sucker in Vegas has just increased. :-p

    6 out of 12.....I missed the only one I really should have known.

    Perhaps I am better at science than as a musician....that is a hard pill to swallow...lol

    Cheers,
