...the present? You mean the present? Look, I love the Stones as much as the next person, but I'm definitely not surprised that a current best-selling artist is better known among the general public than the singer of a band that has only released two albums in the last 20 years and hasn't had a top 10 song in the US or the UK for nearly 30. Hell, back in the '90s I heard jokes about how the Rolling Stones were "the world's greatest Rolling Stones tribute band."

round numbers are easier, quizmaster probably chose a somewhat large number that would also be a bit more challenging than a round number like 2500 which would just be MMD.

I'm certain I tried the roman numeral but I guess not, I like how I guessed half the countries in South America for the beauty pageant one but didn't feel like guessing Venezuela. And I read the tallest building question as "country" so I was confused why UAE wasn't working I was like "did they build a taller one somewhre else??"
