These are intentionally all American figures. I had originally begun to write the quiz as a mixture but decided that if this is reasonably well received I'll do a separate international version. Hope you like it!
Nov 2nd, 2012 at 04:20 GMT
Great. Loved MacArthur and Oppenheimer especially.
Nov 2nd, 2012 at 04:55 GMT
J. Robert O. (!). Well done, 5 globes.
Nov 2nd, 2012 at 18:07 GMT
Great (Francis) Scott, I kept looking for Christian Slater, Tony Hawk or Brian Kelly, whebn I saw the word Gleaming. Mr_________ called he says he earned his 5 Globes.

Great quiz. Minor point: at the time Adams was returning to Braintree not Quincy. That section wasn't renamed Quincy until 1792.
Nov 2nd, 2012 at 22:41 GMT
@dpl: I think it meant John Quincy Adams, maybe?
Nov 2nd, 2012 at 23:03 GMT
@dpl & samkrum- Indeed, I meant John (thus the reference to the Declaration of Independence) but I had forgotten the naming issue. I'll make the change.

You misspelled Booth's quote. It's "Sic semper tyrannis", the motto of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Nov 3rd, 2012 at 03:37 GMT
Thanks, itsacon- it was a typo. Amazing that it took 1,200 plays for someone to point it out!

Great game but as for the hunting call, it could work for the answer given or for Roosevelt especially since it is not given with a first name. Teddy was an avid hunter too. So maybe just suggest going through all of them to find the perfect fits since there is at least one overlap.
Nov 15th, 2012 at 19:32 GMT
The clickable format works really well for this quiz, but it's kind of a shame that it doesn't allow for bonus answers (like Kṛṣṇa for Oppenheimer, or Vicious for Sinatra).
Nov 15th, 2012 at 19:54 GMT
At least Mr. Key isn't trying to rhyme "effulgent".
Nov 15th, 2012 at 21:09 GMT
I actually was confused for a full minute before I realized she had any other name than "Oprah."
Nov 15th, 2012 at 21:10 GMT
Good call Pats4Life- I've made a change to the wording of the hunting call to clarify it.

good quiz but don't like that oppenheimer comes off like a bad guy :/
Nov 15th, 2012 at 22:12 GMT
I didn't score very well, but loved this quiz. More please!
Nov 15th, 2012 at 22:51 GMT
As someone from John Adams's hometown of Braintree, seeing "get back to home to Braintree" as the first clue shocked me into thinking Sporcle was now using our IPs to make personalized quizzes. Even though I'm a hundred miles away... Fun quiz!
Nov 15th, 2012 at 23:19 GMT
Fun quiz; my favorite has to be the message for Poe. Took me a moment to make that connection, but when I did...
Also, if I may bring up a minor nitpick: On the hunting clue, I think it should end "with him and Mr. Bush", even though that seems awkward, since the pronoun is the object of the preposition.
Nov 15th, 2012 at 23:29 GMT
Change one clue to "...go hunting with him and Mr. Bush" or even better, "...with Mr. Bush and him," and it would be great quiz. Pronouns should follow the noun. Objective pronouns are used with prepositions. Good call jodyjm13!

If there's one thing I love on quizzes, it's references to great Bon Jovi song. Thank you for getting "It's My Life" stuck in my head.
Nov 16th, 2012 at 02:01 GMT
1776 reference. Love it.
Nov 16th, 2012 at 02:26 GMT
I was going to point out that Ford never actually said that "as long as it's black" line and that's it's historically inaccurate- then I remembered that half of these people died before the phone was invented.
Nov 16th, 2012 at 13:43 GMT
Not ashamed to admit that I got Haig by remembering and old Doonesbury comic strip.
Nov 16th, 2012 at 14:32 GMT
I like the Dewey one since the phone polls had at least a little to do with newspapers reporting that he had beaten Truman.
Dec 2nd, 2012 at 16:45 GMT
Why was my comment voted down? I know that wasn't the actual origin of the quote, but I'm doing that song in chorus, so now it's stuck in my head!

Amelia Earhart was in Caddyshack?
