@juan: 200 points

Juan got the two names right but he was a bit off on the spelling of Gustav's first name.  No biggie, because after much shuffling of clipboards, filled in forms, ripped pages from encyclopedias, scribbled notebook pages and a bunch of snapped in half pencils, my panel of expert judges came to the conclusion that juan was close enough to win a full 200 points.  This does raise an interesting point on these name quizzes.  If your spelling is off a little, or you submit a Johnny for John, a Harold for Harry, a Teddy for Ted, or a Rik for Rikki, you will be given the nod for having made the correct guess.

Gustav was a college professor of music but sadly nobody selected that particular occupation.

       He can't maintain this kind of speed. His body, his brain, isn't like yours, Spock. It simply isn't designed for that kind
      of longterm metabolic rate.

       If he doesn't rest, he will burn himself into a cinder!

I didn't know they made women’s prison exploitation movies back then.

As for my metabolism, I’m about to take a nap.
