Helpful Hint: Don't fall for question # 25.

But you know more now.

Some of those questions are rather obscure to me unless I wanted to be a history teacher or a maybe a politician.

Albert Einstien couldn't remember his telephone number. He said " Why should I, when I can look it up"? Made sense to me.

Wow. I got 14. *Smug grin*
Of course, I guessed most of them. I don't even know what congress is, let alone how many ammendments have been made!

Actually I wasn't sad, more like irritated with myself. I answered wrongly on things that if I had thought for a minute, I would have gotten right.

Ex: I knew Eisenhower was from texas because I admire him as one of the better presidents that we have had.
He's the reason we have the highway interstate system. He was a 3-4 star general in WW2 who commanded the allied forces on D-Day. He fought for desegregation and said there should be no " second class citizens". He loved his wife with his whole heart and would have been appalled at clinton. A very smart man who ran the government as it has very rarely been run.

I missed the answer. Irks me no end.

I missed question # 25. LMAO Why did I do that? Don't know. Brain glitch.

The rest of the stuff I missed were just guesses.

But that's the fun of tests like these. Brings you down to earth and keeps you humble. lol And you inadvertently learn something which I suspect is the point in the first place.

True. I wonder if there is any software you can use to create your own test...

I got 16! 25 is really evil...

Also, the only reason I got the "Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death!" one was because of a Far Side joke I've read... about potatoes... :wink:

There's a lot of interesting stuff you learn from the Far Side...

Hmmm. Definately. There are various ones along the maths block corridor in my High School, and I have learnt incredible ammounts from them... Well, I guess it gives you something to look at while you're waiting for Mr Wright to get his sandwiches.

Einstien would use his cheques as bookmarks and lose them...
I personally don't think Einstien was smart at all! he stole lots of his information. I think Leonardo is smarter because he invented "USEFULL" inventions like the screw, tank, glasses, helicopers, and much much more. About seventy thousand notebooks were found, and that's only suppose to be a quarter of them.

Wow. You think Einstein wasn't smart? Amazing.

Leonardo who? It took him ten years just to paint Mona Lisa's lips. lol
But he definitely was a visionary. And I like using scissors. They are useful.

Rayman, I challenge you to pick up a book on general relativity and understand a single sentence of it. He couldnt have stolen it from anywhere, because nobody else understood it. It lets us pinpoint airplanes to within 16 meters, and speeds to 2 centimeters per second. Without it, they could only be within 160 meters, and 20 centimeters per second. Leading to lots of crashes. I think that's quite useful.

I got 22 right. #25 caught me, too.

They were both really smart, but in different ways. Einstein had some pretty mad math skills, and he completely revolutionized the way we see gravity. Da Vinci didn't know as much math, but he was far more creative. He drew sketches for machines that were developed hundreds of years later! My indescribable intelligence is in a much more mysterious realm: The Nebro-Gubularight Zone... :P

Da Vinci was an incredibly far-sighted and creative mind. He did work on hundreds of ideas before their time (tho not the helicopter) which if he had only had available the scientific knowledge of Einstiens time, he would have maybe, possibly, doubtfully, given E a run for his money.

Unfortunately a number of his drawings and ideas would not have worked. They were basically impractical, tho much of what he designed was cutting edge work for others to incoporate in their designs.

He did however, invent a large number of things we use today. And his paintings.... There was the man's true genius. Beautiful and thrilling beyond compare. God put gifts in that man.

So like N-G Spisboy says, they were smart in different paths. I somewhat think of Da Vinci's other creations as comparable to what writers come up with in science fiction movies. We don't have the ability at this time to make it happen but someday....
