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 Peter Dyakowski on everything from full moons to the minutiae of the human anatomy. “When you injure something enough, you’re bound to eventually learn all the medical names for it,” jokes Dyakowski. This week, he scored 80 per cent.
