Finally, a picture of that old man that's actually captioned as "Odin" and not "Gandalf". I've seen it described as being a picture of Gandalf like a dozen times now, including on other quizzes on this site!

But Lyndon Johnson, Castro, Mafioso, Soviet Union, Aristotle Onassis and George Bush all have O's in them. Jacky Ruby, on the other hand, was a lone wolf.

Why would anyone want to know the name of an assassin? He didn't achieve anything admirable in his life (maybe unless you very strongly disagree with JFK's politics, which I think most people on this site don't). You're just giving him attention he doesn't deserve.

If we just forgot the names of anyone in history who did something evil or infamous, the whole point of learning history (to learn from it?...) would cease to function.
