Welcome back to the Maclean’s Quiz, a diversion designed by Terrance Balazo to test your trivia skills. And this one’s a special one—2016 is a fresh, brand-new year, with lots to know. So see how much you know, and get to know it better, with this Year Ahead Quiz! (Remember: no Internet assistance allowed.)
As usual, we’ve 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!)
How did he do on the Year Ahead quiz? “I don’t know my baseball announcers from my awards show hosts and I’m not ashamed of it!” He scored 83 per cent.
