Cool theme for a quiz. Though you're missing an h in "Chekhov".

please take beethovens 9th
Aug 25th, 2010 at 21:22 GMT
@alpha - Done.
Aug 26th, 2010 at 03:14 GMT
d'oh! I kept trying Superman's kryptonite, Sampsons locks/hair/Delilah for the superhero one. good quiz.
Aug 26th, 2010 at 03:43 GMT
Maybe accept "Pontiac's uprising".
Aug 26th, 2010 at 08:30 GMT
I also thought of "Pavlov's Dog" for the "Thought experiment" one, I think it applies. This was a great idea, and not just because the quiz marker is cute. 5 Sporcles and a nom.
Aug 26th, 2010 at 11:57 GMT
@mowood - Thanks! @Xnux - Done. @Oddish - Pavlov's Dog added, and not just because you said I was cute.
Aug 26th, 2010 at 12:50 GMT
PS - Thanks for the nom!
Sep 12th, 2010 at 04:36 GMT
Very choice quiz. I also nominated, since the admins don't seem to have picked this up yet.
Sep 13th, 2010 at 03:58 GMT
Great quiz — ingenious idea, nice selection! Maybe also accept alternate anglicisation "Schroedinger's Cat"?
Sep 14th, 2010 at 12:10 GMT
Very nice selection on a great theme! Maybe add a bit more of a hint to the life-saving document? Nothing too specific though. Maybe a reference to WW2 would do the trick?
Sep 16th, 2010 at 21:10 GMT
Please allow Beethoven's Ninth Symphony (it won't accept the full name).

Clever idea; great quiz. :)
Sep 17th, 2010 at 18:21 GMT
Thanks, guys! @carbon_rod - Done. Thanks for pointing that out.
Sep 18th, 2010 at 17:43 GMT
Great quiz and clever clues. Good job =)
Sep 19th, 2010 at 03:48 GMT
Resolved: that Ens. Pavel and Anton Chek(h)ov shall henceforth spell their last names the same damn way. That extra 'h' always trips me up. Really nice job; hope to see a sequel soon.
Sep 19th, 2010 at 15:04 GMT
I look forward to seeing Hobson's choice and Jenkins' ear in the sequel....
Sep 19th, 2010 at 15:05 GMT
@Pit_trout - Aha! Sorry I missed your comment. Just added that. Thanks for the praise, all!
Sep 19th, 2010 at 15:19 GMT
@Mayan - Added a bit of an extra clue to Schindler. Ended up dodging WWII but hopefully this is a nudge in the right direction. I struggled with this one just because it's such a famous film.
Sep 19th, 2010 at 22:38 GMT
great quiz! I would suggest something more specific for Plato's cave though. I'm getting my Ph.D in philosophy, have read the Republic many times and still didn't even think of that!
Sep 20th, 2010 at 04:01 GMT
Very clever! Good quiz!!!

Wonderfully clever original idea. Great diversity of subjects. Nicely designed to make use of space. Excellent cluing.
Pay heed, everyone, because this is exactly what a quiz should strive for. 5 Orbs & nominated.

I'm a little disappointed nobody freaked out about Adam being included in the mythology category. I only came down here to follow the firefight.
Sep 20th, 2010 at 23:03 GMT
Thanks guys! @peterpan55, any suggestions for a better clue? @rockgolf, your praise means a lot. Thanks!
Sep 21st, 2010 at 00:30 GMT
Excellent quiz! Buridan's Ass was all that came to my mind for the animal thought experiment - perhaps accept it, or add "quantum" to the clue?
Sep 21st, 2010 at 00:35 GMT
@lukebradford, it may be too long, but maybe add on the end ",which represents human ignorance" or ,"signifying lack of knowledge"? Or maybe just replace the word "hypothetical" with "metaphorical"? I'm sure it was difficult to come up with the right wording for all these and you did a great job, so I don't want you to think I'm criticizing! :) maybe I just didn't think about it hard enough when I saw it!
Sep 21st, 2010 at 00:39 GMT
Metaphorical sounds good!
Sep 23rd, 2010 at 01:50 GMT
I got about half of them (okay..12), but I really liked Victoria's Secret and Montezuma's revenge. Excellent quiz. Nominated.

Accidentally put "Chekhov's Smoking Gun"... d'oh! Worst part is when you know the answer only 2.8% do, but you miss it over something stupid and don't get credit.
Sep 29th, 2010 at 04:35 GMT
I love love love this quiz.
Sep 29th, 2010 at 04:35 GMT
Ha! I was picturing something like the Loch Ness monster floating off the coast of Mexico, and couldn't think of what it might be...
Sep 29th, 2010 at 04:38 GMT
good quiz got occams razor from watching Contact... what a great movie...
