    3. Jeremy Moon
    4. Lynley Dodd
    5. NOT a scientist, from the sound of it. A sci fi author, I would say. It sounds Douglas Adams-ish but I don’t think he would be that dismissive of science. Ian Banks?

    This is scary, I don’t believe I’ve ever agreed with Andrei on anything before but…

    Too hard for, #5 is Mark Twain but I wouldn’t have a clue where to start on any of the others.

    Gravedodger – Sorry I didn’t mention you when scoring the responses. I’d written the post this morning and put it on time-delayed publish so hadn’t seen your answers.

    You got two correct and you can have a bonus for extra info on 2 & 4.
