Bah. They don't say anything about the greatest metal band of all time.

Heh, I'd like to see how Jeopardy smarty pants Ken Jennings would do on this quiz.

No-one else was expecting intimate close-ups of titanium and aluminium then?

twine: I was; I'd even got myself slightly interested in exploring my knowledge of our malleable friends. Imagine my disappointment when a Metallica question came up.

twine42: I was.

I thought it was going to be stuff like: bronze is an alloy of what metal?

I'm a geek. Move along.

I made it to 740 or so. All those Scandinavian death metal bands kept scratching me out, I never got into that stuff. :)

Thanks ZippityBuddha (8/10)

I got 6/10 on the actually metal quiz - which, considering that I have never taken even high school chemistry, makes me quite proud. (A knowledge of history helped - such as that Britain was valued by the Romans for its tin mines (to make bronze with), or that societies without smithing still had beaten gold, which was found in its pure form).
