Welcome back to the Maclean’s Quiz, a diversion designed by Terrance Balazo to test your trivia skills. Good luck, and remember: no Internet assistance allowed.

We’ve also invited the Maclean’s Genius, Peter Dyakowski, to take the quiz. Dyakowski is a lineman with the CFL’s Hamilton Ticats who also bested the competition in CBC’s Canada’s Smartest Person contest in 2012.

This week, we tested  Dyakowski on everything from presidential beards to the language of the Ashkenazi Jews. “I really need to brush up on my Yiddish,” he admitted. He scored 80 per cent.
