Strictly, it should be Galileo and Relativity

Dec 9, 2018
What? Why? It would be Galileo (or Copernicus, depending on whether you're going with "theorized" or "proved") and heliocentrism, but relativity is pretty firmly Einstein.

Vlad the Impaler is actually supposed to be the man the story of Dracula is based upon. Interesting, huh?

It's sad how many people don't know that the HMS Endeavour was Cook's ship. But then again, I live in Australia.

To be completely honest, I would have known that fact, but I had never heard of Bligh or his ship, and baselessly assumed that "Bligh" was a nautical term and therefore I had no chance whatsoever of getting the question correct.

Read Mutiny on the Bounty or watch the film sometime - I like the 1960s remake with Marlon Brando and Trevor Howard, but the old one with Clark Gable is great, too.

There is a quiz on here somewhere about who captains the ship. There's quite a few.

I don't know why, but I first thought of Woodes Rogers for the Endeavour. But now I have no idea whether or not he actually captained a ship of that name. Why did I think of him ?

I always heard el duce. Finally put in duce.

Doge is a different term that refers to Medieval and Renaissance rulers of various Italian city-states, most notably Venice.

Why in God's name are you comparing Shakespeare to Thatcher? Because they're British? Give the man a break.

Shakespeare is not being compared to Thatcher, they just both happen to have nicknames.

Bard just mean poet. For it to be Shakespeare's nickname it would have to be 'bard of Avon'.

He's commonly known as "The Bard" which is what the quiz is asking for. This isn't complicated.

Comparing Genghis Khan to Napoleon is absolutely baffling. France was a 1,000 years old when Napoleon rose to power.

Both are famous conquerors who led their nation's greatest series of military victories. Hardly baffling.

Nixon is to Johnson . . . well, Nixon was Ike's VP and Johnson was JFK's VP, so couldn't the answer be Eisenhower is to Kennedy?

I mean, if you think of Nixon and Johnson as Vice Presidents before you think of them as Presidents....
+2
level 77
Mar 21, 2018
I had the same thought as Pitzikat. It made sense because it compares administration to administration--VP to VP, President to President. I eventually got to Truman but that's only after I retyped Kennedy a few times.
+1
level 66
Dec 9, 2018
Again, that requires you to think of Nixon and Johnson as VPs before you think of them as Presidents, which just seems odd.
