14% for Archimedes? Really? He's known as Archimedes of Syracuse. Strange.

I'd be surprised if 14% of people even knew who Archimedes was, let alone where he was from. They were probably guessing Syracuse, NY.

He was Greek. At the time, Syracuse and most of Sicily was a Greek colony.

I've known of Archimedes since childhood, but never heard him referred to as Archimedes of Syracuse. Since he was Greek, I always thought of him as Athenian, up to now.

Why does it show San Francisco instead of Cupertino for Steve Jobs? If Cupertino is too small, at least show San Jose because it's closer than San Francisco.
