The power of ignorance . . .

Is it shameful if I say I actually don't know who the person on the right is?

Should I?

Somewhat embarrassingly, I'm only 5 for 10 on the left ones too.

I am SO stealing that!

And yeah, I know who that is on the right, and I'm only about certain of about 70% of the people on the left.

I haven't a clue who the person on the right side is, but on the left side collage, starting from the upper right corner and going clockwise: Carl Sagan (my hero), Charles Darwin, Christopher Hitchens, Sigmund Freud, Nicola Tesla, Marie Curie, Stephen Hawking, ALbert Einstein, Thomas Paine. I can't named the African lady at top but I do recognize her: she's an activist from Holland who's a vocal critic of fundamentalist Islam and it's policies towards women and it's attitudes towards critics of Islam and it's pro-jihadist teachings. She's been the target of several death threats from extremist Muslims (at least I'm reasonably certain that's her)
