I had rubella during the big outbreak in 1964, and I had measles during the outbreak in 1970, a year before the vaccines became available. Measles bad, vaccinations good. Let's wipe both diseases from the face of the earth.

Notice he didn't say French, but Parisian. People who live in Paris long enough may not consider themselves French but they do consider themselves Parisians. I've seen the same thing with New York. People from other countries living in New York call themselves New Yorkers but they don't for one moment consider themselves Americans. Some cities transcend.

I honestly don't know why some people can't accept that a person can adopt another nationality, or even have multiple nationalities.

Marie Curie was a Polish-born French citizen, calling her Parisian is a smart way to avoid choosing between both nationalities.

Please accept "Skłodowska", "Sklodowska", "Skłodowska-Curie" and "Sklodowska-Curie" as alternative spellings. Even on the Nobel diploma from 1911 she is mentioned as "Marie Sklodowska Curie". She underlined her Polish heritage till the end of her life.

"Who is Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov better know as?" Missing N in "known". Also, to me, it sounds more natural to ask what is someone better known as than who is someone better known as, but maybe that's just me.
