You lucky, lucky person (someone, that is, not Larry)

Larry was lucky because he scored the point. Knowing that Zayn exists and is a singer doesn’t have any negative impact on one’s life. If you don’t like his music (like me), then you don’t have to listen to him.

I had no idea on that one, either. My granddaughters don't talk about him. (Got Olivia and Xavi by guessing, but none of the Z names worked for me - I even tried Zinedine.)

Apr 3, 2019
I knew most, there were a couple that I took a guess and got them but came to Z and said who is that? I had to look him up and still question who's that? Definitely doesn't fit with the rest shown.

zoe saldana, zelda fitzgerald, zsa zsa gabor, mao zedong, zebediah springfield, zachary quinto, zachary taylor (president or power ranger), zac ephron.. lots of alternatives for z

I don't see anyone complaining about the inclusion of Kirk Douglas or Judy Garland, both of whom are less guessed currently than Zayn Malik. I think this might be an age-related thing. Zayn was part of One Direction and is now a successful solo artist.

Yes but we all know we SHOULD know those people more than we should know Zayn. So it's sort of like a self-shaming kind of thing. :-}

And Zane is one of those alternatives. What's the problem?

Never heard of that guy either. Missed Judy too, but that was due to a brain fart.

level 66
May 23, 2019
I didn't get that one but knew who it was when I saw the name. Makes sense to have a couple people who have become famous more recently like him and Taylor Swift. A 15 year old doing this quiz would likely know them a lot better than Judy Garland or kirk douglas

I got that one just by guessing a random name with M, before even looking at the picture. Had I done that first, I would have been stumped.

M is a fictional character in Ian Fleming's James Bond book and film series; the character is the Head of the Secret Intelligence Service—also known as MI6—and is Bond's superior.

Considering 10 of them have been dead for at least 20 years, which 3 of the remaining 16 are going to remembered? Is it Bowie, Reagan, Gagarin or Sinatra?

*Sheepishly raises hand. I knew he played for Barca, but couldn't remember his name.
+2
level 40
Apr 5, 2019
No, because he is one of the most famous football players of the last generation. Xavi Hernández. who is mostly known as Xavi because he didn't play with his last name on the back of his shirt. He played for Barcelona and the Spanish national team.

Not only one of the most famous, but also one of the finest of his generation, perhaps of all history

The world sure is white.

Apr 5, 2019
No its not but this quiz happens to have mostly white people. Would you say the same thing if it was all black or asians instead? If you really have a problem with that for some reason, make your own quiz.
+2
level 71
Apr 6, 2019
No, he would say exactly the same thing, because the world actually *is* mostly Asian and black.

yes please make a picture quiz about first names of random Chinese people. I'm sure everyone would love that. It will probably win some award, too.

Louis Armstrong is "white," now? When you went to Tajikistan did you criticize them for being too white, too? Is this really the best thing you have to be preoccupied with?
+1
level 70
May 23, 2019
No, but people who live in predominantly white countries, in a world dominated by "white culture" (quotes for crude concepts), are more likely to know white people. If this quiz went with 18% "Chinese", 17% "Indian" and 4% "Indonesian" faces (not that this is mathematically possible), it would be approximately representative of the world population but absolutely not representative of the average Jetpunker's knowledge. In a few decades, or whenever political and cultural hegenomy has shifted, white people might be expected to recognize lots of famous Chinese people.
