    1. What is the highest capital city in the world? La Paz, Bolivia.

    That depends on how you are defining the capital city. La Paz is the administrative capital, and where most of the government have moved to, but as far as I am aware Sucre is still classed as the capital city as well. So if it was me, I'd give a point to anyone who said Quito (Ecuador).

    I think I've got about 22. 8 of them on the planets. Not good!

    I got 27. More than I was hoping for, so pretty happy.

    A few points...

    A dodecahedron has 12 faces, not 12 edges. Come on, Martin! You should know that!
    Can't believe that Sheldon still calls Pluto a planet. It hasn't even cleared its own neighbourhood.
    Number 12 on the picture round is "The Grinch" not "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". It's the live-action film not the animated film or the book. But either way I didn't get it at the time!

    On question 2 in the 'Martin round', isn't it spelt Wolowitz?

    Loose = the opposite of tight (eg "These trousers feel a little loose")
    Lose = the opposite of find/gain (eg "I'm going to lose weight this year")

    Hasn't Pluto been downgraded and no longer a planet?

    Pluto
    The question, however, was as per Sheldon's beliefs.
    You are correct, though, Pluto is no longer a planet.
