Patrick Moore can play the xylophone *and* he knows all the cheats to Sonic 2.

Hmmm. You make a very good point there.

Wow, did you get the UK version? We've only got the US one, I couldn';t find the UK one. I played the US children's version, which is much more opaque to British minds.

Yes, M got me the British version for my birthday. There's a UK kids version now, just to cover both bases!

Einstein was brilliant, which is not quite the same as talented.

That was my thought. Beethoven therefore seemed most obvious, but I'd forgotten about the xylophone.

That was my thought, but I eventually decided he was probably talented too, (and picked between them on the sort of fairly arbitrary basis one can only use when comparing too such great people, going into which here probably won't help)

Well by those measures Einstein beats Beethoven, although if you do things by proportions Patrick Moore comes ahead. "Double Deckers" is clearly the loser here, although by a smaller margin by proportions than might be imagined.

Treat with a big yellow digger's pinch of salt, of course.
