    13/20.  Should’ve gotten the automobile inventor.  :( Did have to work hard for the correct spelling of several of them.  :)

    I don’t (ahem, can’t) do non-multiple choice inventor trivia.  Unless they are all bio/chem/med sciences.

    Were it multiple choice I would so score!  …I think.

    11/20.  Feeling really dumb that I missed Sikorsky and Benz because just last week I read a book about inventors to the kids at the library and they were both mentioned.

  4. I wonder what Alpaca tastes like???    (ducks and runs for cover)

    16/20. One I had never heard of, and I had no idea that he (don’t want to give it away) invented the adding machine.

      I’ve actually heard of him, but didn’t know he invented the adding machine.  Kinda makes sense though given what I do know him for.

      • Timothy Reeves says:

        I didn’t word that very well. I had not heard of one at all (I had heard of all the other nineteen), and another guy (who I had heard of) invented the adding machine, but I didn’t know it was he who invented it.

    Airplanes are self-propeled… The right answer is Santos-Dumont you imperialists ;-)

    What? No question over who invented the steam engine or the separate condenser!? Blasphemy!
