Beat My Score

I got 50% on the Prof or Hobo? Quiz, a score that equals what I could have expected from guessing randomly. No doubt readers can do better.

Update: I do somewhat better, however, on arXiv vs. snarXiv in which one is asked to guess which are the real titles of physics papers. Not that this is easy.

    8 of 10; it helped that there were a couple of computer scientists who I vaguely recognized, and I knew a little about St Olaf’s. But the background in the top photo convinced me to change my first choice. Oops.

    My goal is to some day qualify to take part in a “professor or hobo” poll, though hopefully on the professor side. (My wife is opposed, unfortunately.)

    9/10. The nose/bridge is often the telltale. The one I got wrong had the had covering the bridge of the nose.
