I was watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" yesterday and one of the questions was "Which world leader was so afraid of being poisoned that he chewed arsenic to build up a tolerance?"
That thing still on? I thought it died years ago.
The choices were Rasputin, Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar and Stalin. I would have gone with either Caesar or Alexander, but they said the right answer was Rasputin!
If I had been the contestant on that day, I would have lodged a complaint as Rasputin may have chewed arsenic (and I have never read about that in any bio of him) but he was never a World Leader! (Unless being the power behind that throne qualifies him as one.)
I would lodge a complaint too. Rasputin was never a world leader. Duh!
