I got 51, I know a lot more but can't spell the names. Oscar Roth Anderson really confused me when It's supposed to be spelt Oscar Roth Andersen, I gave up on that one very quickly.

I got like 145, Grzergorz Luczyna, Tomas Kiedrowicz were my two most uncommon ones and I had no idea how to spell maskow.

Yup. I didn't know how to spell Andersen either. I spelled it as Anderson.

It's funny how everyone outside Scandinavia has trouble spelling Andersen ^_^

Since I'm pretty addicted to Sporcle now, I came back to this...

70/299.

Least common ones I got were Sameer Mahmood (I guess no one remembers it since it got smashed by over 0.2 secs soon after), and Kaijun Lin (I don't see why that one's so low though). Both were 22.7%. I tried ZZ, and I even looked up his name after attempting it, but still messed up the spelling. :( ZZ was the least common answer I knew after checking results. Guus Razoux Schultz was the least common one I'd heard of after checking.

Still very bad, and if I brushed over Megaminx I would have got some more.

I might do some more of these quizzes, but split into different sections, since there are more WRs now which take it over 300 cap.
