My condolences to the 21% who think that there's a lake larger than the Mediterranean, and 10% who think that talc is an element.

Perhaps the football question was intended to read "Pelé (or Neymar) and Christiano Ronaldo" rather than Ronaldo twice?

Interestingly, Agatha Christie did go missing for eleven days in 1926, in what became a heavily covered case.

I remember in the late 90s Ronaldo (sometimes Ronaldo Nazário) was the go to player as a reference to true footballing brilliance and a kind of symbol of Brazilian mastery of the sport. It's funny that he's now overshadowed by Cristiano Ronaldo. Ronaldo scored 0.75 goals per game in competitive internationals, compared to 0.68 for Cristiano Ronaldo. He was also in a world cup winning side, unlike Cristiano. For a while he had the record for the most World Cup finals goals, but was overtaken by Miroslav Klose. He scored 15 goals at a World Cup, compared to Messi's 13, Pelé's 12, and Maradona and Cristiano Ronaldo on 8. In other words, Ronaldo was a pretty legendary player.

On the other hand, Cristiano Ronaldo is the all time top scorer of the Champions League with 140 goals in 183 games while Ronaldo only managed to scored 16 goals in 42 appearances, never being able to lift the trophy —Cristiano has five titles. As incredible as Ronaldo was, Cristiano and Messi are just in another league stats wise. Also international stats are kind of skewed in favor of Ronaldo given that Brazil has always been a way stronger team than Portugal.

Stats aren't everything though and don't show how much of his career was interrupted by injuries. Anyone who didn't see him should go to YouTube and just imagine how good he would have been with two good knees

Brazilian Ronaldo 1996-1998, before he got injured, is the best player I've ever seen.

The Jesus question. Am I really the first to notice it? To roughly paraphrase, "Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and to God what belongs to God." In a realistic setting, of that time and place, how was he not saying "Don't pay Roman taxes"? The question is controversial, perhaps best omitted.

I think you've got that exactly backwards. "Render unto Caesar" seems to be very explicitly a case of Jesus telling his followers to respect the laws of the state and pay taxes to the secular authorities, and distinguishing this from the worship of God.

The trend in biblical scholarship now is to see the saying as a "double-voiced utterance," where he's speaking one way to the Romans ("pay taxes") and another way to his Jewish audience ("everything belongs to God, so render Caeser nothing").

See Warren Carter's article in *In the Shadow of Empire,* ed. Horsley, for example.

That may indeed be a niche academic fad, but it's not the way an overwhelming majority of readers understand it and I very much doubt it ever will be.

He was saying that the money belonged to Caesar because it had his inscription on it (You should pay taxes). In Romans Paul also says "Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor". I think God deserves our respect.

I said false to the Ronaldo question. Cristiano Ronaldo, being Portuguese, grew up speaking that language (yes he can also speak Spanish but Portuguese is his native tongue). Ronaldo, being Brazilian, spoke Spanish. Therefore 2 different languages. Therefore shouldn't the answer be False?

I know what you mean, but I'm personally pretty sure that the Satoshi Nakamoto who invented bitcoin is actually Satoshi "Dorian" Nakamoto who was once credited with inventing bitcoin. It's just that recently, he's distanced himself from it by denying having involvement. But, if you read the interviews where he admitted he developed bitcoin, and then later interviews where he says he has no idea what bitcoin even is (after giving interviews about inventing bitcoin), it's fairly obvious that he's not being truthful in later interviews. Anyway, I flipped a bitcoin and it came up tails, so I guessed false.
