Space Odyssey is a bit tricky, since there are 4 of them: 2001, 2010, 2060 and 3001. These are the books, but I guess you are talking about the movie, so maybe a note in brackets would make it clearer. :) Awesome quiz, though!

Technically it's a good quiz. But there are a lot of the clues i didn't know... It's a smart way to make a person think, but you can't expect everyone to know those things.. For example i had no ideas what Baker's dozen and circles of hell was...

I thought those were the easy ones! I'm British, so I had no idea what the White House street address was and I had to work out the Benjamin by trying each denomination in turn. :P I imagine an American would have a similar problem with the 1966-1066 one. It's a nice balance.

Let me make a pitch for reading the Comedy. 100 bite-sized cantos, with lots of great characters but, unlike War and Peace or Tale of Genji, you don't have to keep track of them once you move on. And you get to see Dante kicking heads and taking names.

I thought this quiz was going to be something lame like "What is two plus two", but it turned out to be so much more. Great Quiz!

How odd, 12 teams in the big ten.

Great quiz, though I needed more time to figure things out. Pretty sure I would never have gotten the Battle of Hastings on though.

Then why isn't it called the Big Fourteen?

Same reason the Big 12 isn't called the Big 10: tradition. It's been almost 30 years since the Big Ten actually had 10 teams.

Super witty quiz, though I was clueless on the stoner's number (should I have smoked a joint first?) and why "score" was 20.

Four score and seven years ago ring a bell? As for 420, it was once a time of day, now it's more than that.

Wasn't 4-20 a police code? Also I don't understand why it was so hard for me to check if it was multiplication, division or subtraction. Several times I added the numbers together and wondered what I did wrong because the answer wouldn't take only to 10 seconds later realise it wasn't the addition at all that was required!

420 was not a police code, that was an urban myth. 4:20 pm was the time a group of high school kids were gathering to spark up.

Shouldn't Dalmations x hours in a day be 2424? 101 dalmations x 24 hours

For that clue it's addition, not multiplication. I did the same thing on several and wondered why my answer wasn't taken until I realized they weren't all addition.

Same, wasted wayyytoo much time one that one, after reaching the end and coming back to it, I saw it had magically transformed from an x to a + haha.

(that would make some people swéar it is a mandela effect at work... and that it actually had changed... like people recollection of things can never be wrong, or even the initial processing of info (like in this case))

Jesus had 12 disciples. It's debated how many apostles he had. Usually 13 because people tend to count Paul.

Very satisfying quiz. Only number I didn't know was the year England won the World Cup, and I was able to get that one with some strategic guessing. Love that last clue (and it's the least frequently guessed!)
