"If you got this wrong, it means you are new to SQL Server as the people other than James Franco and Hugh Hefner are some of the luminaries in the SQL Server world."

I got it right even though I've never heard of most of them (why should I have?).

Feel a bit deflated at having my streak of correct answers ended by a question like this. Luminaries?

Please don't go. The drones need you. They look up to you.

I guess you might be some crazy fan of the guys not related to SQL Server.

With huge apologies to Ms. Shaw and Ms. Tripp...

I read the title "Odd Men Out" took a quick glance at the list, saw the names of two women, and decided that since it was a humor category trick question...

So of course, I got it wrong. And then I laughed at myself.

Moral: Don't answer these things when you're normally taking the day off.

Which leads to the next question. Who are Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer - not to mention James Franco? Guess I need to start reading the magazines in the supermarket checkout lane.

Interesting. At the time I answered, 13% are picking Buck Woody, 8% are picking Itzik, and 7% are picking Steve.

It is also curious that 37% think that James Franco is related to SQL Server.

Mind you, 19% not picking HH is a bit surprising too.


Since I'm sure there are a number of people from other countries that don't have any interest in his fine and upstanding magazine and lifestyle I don't find it that surprising.

My guess would be that most people who missed this one, like me, didn't read the question carefully. If I'd paid attention to the "Choose Two" admonition, I'd have my point. As is, in addition to Franco and Hef, I checked off Buck Woody, who may be a luminary, but whose light I haven't seen. Then, I don't play tennis like Nadal either.

Not a very good question. We might not be aware of all these names, no matter how old we are.
