The hope that this quiz is enjoyed is one of my main reasons for making it
If you do a great job a mark near the top of the results page will be your reward
It really doesn't matter if you get as many as anyone else if you have fun though
If you see another well known person hiding and his/her name doesn't appear as a bonus when you type it please let me know
Some of these will likely be obvious while others will seem so cryptic a stroke of genius will be required
Due to constant reminders from the language editor, I knew to not require you to answer in order on this quiz
If the hints seem random and elaborate it is merely because I am attempting to obscure where the name is hidden
It obviously isn't nearly as epic as some other quizzes on Sporcle but it seemed like a fun idea
I always look forward to seeing the comments on my quizzes but please don't post a link to an unrelated quiz
Thanks for playing, I hope that you found it entertaining
Yes, there is someone hiding in the title, good find

Given that I know where all the people are hiding I am having a hard time figuring out how hard it is and thus what time limit would be appropriate and I would appreciate some help.

Well, with seven seconds left, I suddenly realized you didn't have (Howie) Mandel in mind for the fourth-to-bottom one, and that was the last one I got, so that should give some sense of the timing. I think it wouldn't hurt to have a third column giving the person's profession (roughly--"scientist, politician, explorer, politician", etc.).

Thanks, I even thought to check in the people's names and I still missed Mandel. Instead of the profession I decided to go with the number of letters, thanks for the help.

hey betraisefold, i made a quiz with you in mind. You've got me all fired up, lol. It's under this account and is the president one. Don't want to be that guy that posts a link under your quiz though, although this is just as bad. NO ONE ELSE PLAY IT!!! Not advertising!!!!!!!!!

sweet quiz. Very very tough though. I woulda needed and extra couple minutes, but not my style though

@godpaul28: Thanks, I have decided to add a couple of minutes, better to have too much time than not enough I guess. If you ever have any other quizzes you think I might like feel free to use the e-mail address in my profile to let me know if you'd like to avoid advertising.

Good quiz. Timing is just right, missed a couple but extra time wouldn't have helped. There is a small spelling mistake on the second from the bottom that you may have missed.

Timing was good for me. If bands are worth noting as well as people, "Opeth" is there in the last one ("h

I especially liked Gandhi and Hanks. This was nicely done. (Sounds like the language editor is a little uptight. What's his problem?)
Mar 15th, 2010 at 23:56 GMT
@EggHeadNurse: Thanks, fixed. @LTH: Thanks. The clues were originally unrelated random phrases. Gandhi was 'Eye, toe, jaw, lip, rib, arm, gum, ear, leg and hip'. Hanks was found by a friend proofreading an early version in 'Thanks to constant reminders from the language editor...'. And I agree about the language editor - who does he think he is going around constantly giving accurate helpful advices that help make quizzes better. I'd sure like to teach him a lesson.
