I KNEW that. Yeah for me. Only 37 % got the answer right. For those who want more info--The Great Fire
of London occurred the following year 1666.--The one Samuel Pepys wrote about in his diary. So there--take that you who laugh at degrees in English Literature! Course it also helps to have an interest in mathematics. That's why I also know that Euler's algebraic equation supposedly proving the existence of God is a bunch of gibberish. Oh well, and so to study...

A little more trivia. As a Lord, Sir Isaac Newton also sat in Parliament. According to Hansard, the official record of every word spoken, Newton only spoke on one occasion.
Being such an exceptional intellect, it would not be surprising for him to have had some incredible insight into Government or Law....however, his words were much more mundane. He asked for somebody to open a window.
