Alfred Dreyfus was an artillery officer, not naval. Good quiz, though.

Nope, I can't spell Homer's real name. D'oh!
Oct 24th, 2012 at 19:32 GMT
Wow. This was a spelling quiz disguised as a birthday quiz.
Oct 24th, 2012 at 19:38 GMT
Add an 's' on the end of the answer for 9 October and you get an Oscar winner whose birthday is 29 October. Wise not to include both I think.
Oct 24th, 2012 at 19:42 GMT
I was thinking Native American Indian and not India Indian for Ghandi...d'oh!
Oct 24th, 2012 at 19:48 GMT
Yep Knievel, Castellaneta and Nietzsche all stumped me with their spellings.
Oct 24th, 2012 at 19:50 GMT
Managed to get Castellaneta, but was never going to get Knievel right no matter how many times I tried.
Oct 24th, 2012 at 19:56 GMT
So the two hardest names to spell on Sporcle were born back to back days?
Oct 24th, 2012 at 20:24 GMT
Nice quiz, but if I could make one minor criticism, I think cinema is slightly over-represented here; if you don't know much about it, that's nearly a quarter of the answers you've got no chance of getting.
Oct 24th, 2012 at 20:38 GMT
you're really not going to accept Bonnie for Bonnie & Clyde?? that's how they're known, not Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow.
Oct 24th, 2012 at 20:40 GMT
Is this a sporcle quiz or a spelling test? I knew the people, I just couldn't spell half of them.
Oct 24th, 2012 at 20:50 GMT
Interesting quiz and clues. I'd pick a couple different choices: John Lennon instead of Dreyfus on the 9th, Buster Keaton instead of Heston on the 4th... I'm sure everyone has other examples of people they think more note-and-quiz-worthy. Still, good quiz!

Echoing joe_in_indy, I'd suggest Snoop Dogg on the 20th instead of the architect. That's also my birthday.
Oct 24th, 2012 at 21:22 GMT
@ChileNoseJam - 5 out of 31 is just under a sixth rather than nearly a quarter.
Oct 24th, 2012 at 21:58 GMT
I got Bobby Charlton when I went to type in Charlton Heston. Thanks! You did that on purpose, didn't you?
Oct 24th, 2012 at 22:00 GMT
@wilwoodlen: If they did, then "damn you, Spocle! Damn you to hell!"
Oct 24th, 2012 at 22:06 GMT
Who else tried the Piranha Brothers for October 24th?
Oct 24th, 2012 at 22:17 GMT
You forgot to list ME - but, then again, I guess Princess Leia IS more famous than I am, and she looks a lot better in a gold bikini.

Let's see how low a comment score I can garner: Hey Sporclers, guess what? Mathematically, I'm probably better than you at this quiz. 66th percentile, 16 correct!
Oct 25th, 2012 at 01:48 GMT
Castellaneta and Nietzsche were so much fun to spell.
Oct 25th, 2012 at 03:49 GMT
Phillip Pullman? Really I have to share a birthday with him? Those last two books of the His Dark Materials series were out there to say the least.
Oct 25th, 2012 at 04:51 GMT
Capt. Cook and Dostoyevsky were born in October by the Julian calendar but in November by the Gregorian one. Although the Julian calendar was official in the UK and in Russia when they were born, sometimes the birth dates are converted later (that's why Washington's birthday is celebrated on Feb. 22nd although the date of his birth was actually Feb. 11th). Probably other people born in October by either calendar could have been chosen (by the way, that's the case of Christopher Wren, Oct. 20th Julian / Oct. 30th Gregorian).
Oct 25th, 2012 at 13:22 GMT
You forgot Weird Al Yankovic.
Oct 25th, 2012 at 13:35 GMT
Dan Castellaneta is the new Kyrgyzstan.
Oct 25th, 2012 at 14:17 GMT
Very frustrating quiz. It won't accept 'Mohandas K Gandhi'. When I tried to type 'Charlton Heston' it revealed ' another answer which I knew anyway. If you're going to prefer 'Mohandas Gandhi' to the better known 'Mahatma Gandhi', then shouldn't the answer to Oct 23 be Edson Arantes di Nascimento?
Oct 25th, 2012 at 17:06 GMT
it wouldn't accept CIA for JFK assassin
Oct 26th, 2012 at 01:44 GMT
I don't know how I missed Nietzsche; I went through the entire Monty Python Philosopher's Song in my head.
Mar 26th, 2013 at 01:04 GMT
Louis-Philippe seemed easy to me, but I guess we just did that chapter. Really surprised to see it least guessed.
