Good quiz. Couldn't remember Buzz Aldrin, but remembered Michael Collins, who was in the command module and never landed.

The question doesn't specify it, but technically Israel is acceptable if it doesn't matter who gave him the name. The question should probably specify whether the name is given by the parents or by God. Either way, I think Jacob probably should be the correct answer here.

I think Lilith appears as Adam's first wife mainly in Gnostic and some Jewish writings. In the Christian Bible, I've seen a few translations which listed Lilith as the night demon mentioned in Isaiah 34:14, but that is far later than the second person named.

gnostic texts. Which mean the only reason why she's not held as the 2nd person in mainstream Christian tradition as opposed to Eve is just random luck about which of the many contradictory early Christian texts were incorporated into the Bible and which weren't.

I am astonished that more people apparently knew the identity of the second Roman emperor than the title of the second original Star Wars movie. Although I bet if I looked back in a few weeks or months it would have changed.

I'm surprised by the very low number for the Star Wars question (52% as I write this comment). Wonder if it would make a difference if the clue specified release date, rather than plot chronology?

I'm sure that Star Wars is less significant to the greater public than real world events. Most of us don't live in fantasy world.

Attack of the Clones may be called Episode II, but the second Star Wars movie filmed and produced is Episode V.

Yep, once again a Harry Potter question is the only thing preventing a perfect score. As if Harry Potter stuff hasn't been focused on enough. In all of human history, of everything that came first and then had a second, we can't get through 20 or so questions without resorting to more Harry Potter crap? *sigh*

I'm not a real HP fan, but i feel like that book series is now an exceptional cultural reference of modern literature. Take into account that HP series are somehow more read than many classics. EVER.

Good quiz, it is surprising how we have been conditioned to favour the first, biggest, best, newest, smallest, etc. and we have to think for the second in line.
