Even though A-Rod used PEDs from 01-03, when he played shortstop, he is currently classified as a third baseman.

Scarface gangster can also be Pacino, seeing as he was the main character in the movie of the same name.

True. But 93% chose the correct "Al" for scarfaced gangster. Besides, Pacino is the answer to the "Godfather" question.

Capone actually was a scar faced gangster whereas Pacino was merely playing him in a movie. It may come as a shock to many Americans, but the movies are not real life.

I'm sure skoop knows the difference between fantasy and reality. I believe he was referring to the fact that Al Pacino acted in the movie "Scarface", and that, therefore, the word could also be applied to him.

@Malbaby - I'd argue that movies are very real to a lot of people, for example the actors, directors, producers, best boys, DPs, ADs, set designers, etc., who work on them. But otherwise, you're right: "only" Americans think that what they see in movies is real.

Malbaby it sounds like you need to brush up on some things... first of all, Scarface the movie has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with Al Capone. zero. second, if you were familiar with history, you'd know that the Mariel Boatlift was an actual thing that happened in real life. sure, the character of Scarface is a dramatization, but don't kid yourself into thinking things like that didn't happen, or don't happen.

Poor you - how will you get through your day. (what is it with all these expectations people have on these quizzes? It seems to be all about them rather than a little bit of enjoyment and challenge).

So true, except for those occasions when someone comments "you should have included persons x and y" and the Quizmaster answers "great idea, I've added them!" So a little whining now and then can occasionally pay off.

You should have been hearing about the Senator quite a bit recently. He is the one that made the mistake of taking a picture abusing a fellow volunteer during a USO tour. In spite of his valiant efforts, he has aborted his political future since sexual harassment is not swept under the rug anymore for the rich and powerful. Too bad Franken forgot to burn the photograph while he could. Good riddance to bad trash. How many more women need to accuse him of horrible treatment before he is shamed from public life? I do not know what the accusation count is up to, but has been growing steadily.
