Probably. You can get 5 points by being in the 95th percentile, which is a moving target.

Rather a shame that the euro-countries are excluded. Pre-euro there was certainly a good amount of people on their currency.

If ever there was a quiz of two halves that is it. First column is pretty straight forward. The second column jesus! A few I guessed every country in their region bar the answer but that's a tough tough second column.

The answer Niels Bohr, Denmark has not been correct for about 10 years. The 2009 series does not contain pictures of persons, but danish bridges instead. See them here: http://www.nationalbanken.dk/en/banknotes_and_coins/Danish_banknotes/Pages/50-krone-banknote.aspx

And the an addition - the older series are of course still valid, but will be taken out of use whenever a bank gets their hands on them ;-)

They're big fans of electric cars in Serbia.

(just kidding, it's because he grew up an ethnic and cultural Serb in the Austro-Hungarian Empire)

Fun fact: us Americans have Toussaint L'Ouverture to thank for about a third of our land.

The Louisiana Purchase was made possible when France's attention was diverted from their American territory to Haiti where L'Ouverture was leading a slave revolt.

I know it is no longer a country, but could Yugoslavia also be accepted for Nikola Tesla?? He was featured on their money after all!

Norway no longer has Edward Munch, or any people for that matter on money. Exception being two coins, where the king is depicted.

Born in Austria-Hungary, on land that is now Croatia, died a citizen of the USA... put on money from some country that is neither Austria, nor Hungary, nor Croatia, nor the US, but that has nothing else to feel proud of apparently. Who is... ?

So if you call out someone for ridiculing a country (however implicit it was) and point out the hypocrisy of them not tolerating someone else even slightly criticising their country (of which there's ample proof on this site's comments), you get your comment deleted.

I was never disrespectful in any way, but it doesn't matter I guess, cause apparently there's a double standard and some veterans on this site are untouchable. Good to know.

baloney. but regardless of whatever your first comment was, the implication in this one is demonstrably wrong. Not that I haven't seen people make it (and be wrong) before. Probably QM didn't feel like seeing me go through the proof again.

Also, if there ever were stats published, I feel pretty confident that I may hold the record for most deleted comments of anyone on this site.

Fair enough on the second point, I can only go by what you say.

As for the first one, I've seen this before, it's quite prevalent with people in the US (and my gf, who's from the US, has attested to it) that think themselves quite critical of their own country and yet are blind to their own nationalistic bias. American exceptionalism is ingrained in your culture, often in very subtle and insidious ways, which makes it in some ways a lot more problematic than your run of the mill jingoism.

Also, you say "demonstrably" when nothing has been demonstrated in this comment section, not even my comment, which is an opinion, as is yours. But apparently you seem to be under the impression you are the sole possessor of the truth, which is why you so often make snarky condescending replies, like the one you made to FedericoGuzman up there (btw pointing out something irrelevant to the issue being argued).
