faye: Good connections and crossovers, but the French actors include a Michel whereas your answer cites a Jean. (3 years, 4 months ago)

Alec: Thanks for the comment.
The names of the elements are NOT all from Latin, so that's why you don't get a point for "latin".
"Wolfram" (=Tungsten, symbol W) is derived from German "wolf rahm", the name given to tungsten by Johan Gottschalk Wallerius in 1747, which translates into English as "wolf's froth" or "cream". (3 years, 7 months ago)

Mr A: A lot of the ideas in the quiz are great, I really like the red herrings that aren't actually red herrings, and the correspondence between two of the groups is a very nice touch. Unfortunately, the group of elements should probably accept Latin names, since that is where all the symbols come from, the recognition on the physicists group is bizarre, and if you were gonna do such a heavily physics-inspired grid, putting in a pop culture group at the end is a bit weird.
