Have you ever listened to anyone who met the man talk about him? That's often among the first things they mention. He loved to drink. Loved to eat. Loved to chase women.

One time he drank so much he passed out in a hotel lobby. He weighed so much that nobody could move him and the hotel manager had to just leave him there until he woke up. Most of the time, the drinking was his way of self medicating. He was always in a lot of pain. My understanding was that he was always blitzed on the set of Princess Bride to try to stop the pain.

Revisiting this quiz, I agree with you. I replaced a couple questions, so it should be a little easier now - but still pretty tough.

For the question, "What is the most world's popular spreadsheet program?," the words "most" and "world's" should be swapped. It should read, "What is the world's most popular spreadsheet program?"

I did the same: thought I must have been wrong about Mathilda. So, persevere, if in doubt on jetpunk try leaving out the H's.

Now I'm not going to claim this quiz is too US-centric... but the question about the Knesset certainly reveals a US mindset. Running for democratic office anywhere in the world requires time, thought, effort, determination, courage, self-confidence and perhaps a little arrogance - but only in the States does it mean raising significant amounts of money.

More accurately the Peninsula Hotel is located in Kowloon city. Hong Kong is actually a territory with several cities.

Even more accurately, the Peninsula is on the Kowloon peninsula, but not in Kowloon City. It's in the Administrative district of Yau Tsim Mong (specifically Tsim Sha Tsui), Kowloon City is further north and west, around the old Kai Tak airport.
