    Yeah, sometimes I am amazed at the things these smart people don't know... but then they lose me when they get into literature, music, art, pop culture, etc...

    If the topic is classical music, symphonies, operas, ballet, anything short of popular music of the 60s on, fuggedaboudit!

    If the subjects are opera, art, literature, mythology, physics, sports and music after 1900 and the first couple of choice are not amongst the latter two, I might as well not play along.

    My sore spots are pop music (post-Beatles) and movies. Not great on chemistry either. But I'm ok with the other categies mentionted by NotDutra5, some more than others. .

    Pop music/culture (TV/movies!), sports, geography, history, literature/language, most science/technology, math, famous people, trivia in general, etc. I do fine, but food, wine, drinks, high culture - not so much.

It's easy to skip a couple of words in the clue.
    I agree. I don't think the Owens answer was ridiculous at all from a non-track fan at that guy's age.
    Probably more surprised that nobody had a clue about what the "R" stood for in NRA when the category was "new deal"

    Yeh, the NRA was my other surprise.
