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 the periodic table and prominent fables, to the history of both the tube and tubers alike. How did he do? “Darn it!” he said, pulling in to Montreal to play the Alouettes. “Lost a bunch of coin tosses and second guesses.” He scored 70 per cent.
