    Unless you said Stoor Hobbit specifically, no, because at no point through the Hobbit or the Lord Of The Rings is he refered to as just a Hobbit. Sorry. If you have a problem with it take it up with Tolkien.

    Did you only manage to get 9 for 18?
    And I bet I know what you said for 7.

    @headlessgeneral: Well, at least you’ve done 1 1/2 points better than last time.

    @kaldath: Good to see you got the two questions right on the subjects you requested.

    So as it stands:

    I got 12/20- 1, 2, 3 (all of them), 5, 6, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 16 and 17. I got 3/5 on 7, and I was one short on 18. I didn’t get the ones on fantasy, mainly because I’m really behind on my fantasy reading/watching.

    To be honest, you’re doing well enough without knowing all that much about the fantasy stuff.

    5/20. In my defense, I have never read any Dragonlance or Discworld.

    I’ve never read any Dragonlance either, and the only Discworld novel I’ve read is the one I ask about in Q19, but that was ages ago.

    I’m very weak on Dr. Who. Tom Baker was my favorite. I only got 1,2,6,9 and14.

    I’m mad at myself for forgetting the Chameleon! And I should have known Human Torch but I said Submariner.
