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. And we don’t call him our genius for nothing—he solved the viral Singapore brain teaser that had been stumping the Internet. (And during his workout, no less!) And try to beat his very Canadian score at our very Canadian Canada Day Quiz here!

This week, we tested Dyakowski on everything from Inspector Gadget and Mr. Hockey, to Academy Award victories and Academy Award tragedies. How did he do? “I was on a roll but fell apart late and lost a bunch of coin tosses!” He scored 70 per cent.

  1. got 21 right out of 30 how is that only 57%, IS THAT THE NEW MATH?

  2. I use the quiz as my personal memory test. When I first do it, I have to guess at most of the answers and do not do well. However, I check out the answers and go back in a couple of days, and see how many I can remember, and usually do much better. I recommend this exercise as a memory test for anyone who wants to improve their memory.
