I think we're splitting hairs here my friend.
Ok, if your thought process was "I wonder if the answer is "firsts" I'll google one of the subjects to see if they were in fact a first? then that would not be cheating.
However, if you googled all three,having no clue beforehand who they were and you discovered they were all "firsts" in their particular field I would consider that to be not in the spirit of the game IF the idea of the game is to test one's general knowledge.
I think there's a quiz show on U.K TV(I think it's called connections)that asks these sort of things.
I don't watch it much because I'm rubbish at it.
As soon as they start talking about celebrities and films I'm totally lost
