Good quiz. Could you give a little leeway on the spelling of Schrodinger? I spelled it every way except correctly. Also - Dennis Quaid is an important historical figure? Who knew?

What kind of spelling did you try? And Quaid was mainly because I was running out of 'Q's to use from previous quizzes.

I like how you've continued this series. At first I was like, "Ugh, history!" but these quizzes are truly fun!

Nah quaid is fine: everyone knows the name. Better than having no Q

Poor Xanthopoulos: noone knows who he is (can't say i do either!)

Glad to see poor old San Yat-sen in a quiz: always remember that he died of a broken heart :-)
