The Quiz: Test your skills against Maclean’s Genius!

This week, we tested Peter Dyakowski on everything from cabbage to soccer. He scored 80 per cent.

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!)

This week, we tested Dyakowski on everything from cabbage to beans, from soccer to biking. And even though he’s in the middle of training camp, Dyakowski managed to impress with his score. “Maybe I was a little premature with my comments last week: another week of football (including a pre-season game) and my score has slipped considerably,” he said. “Rather than blame the 100 hits to the head between then and now (two quizzes make for an insignificant sample size anyway), let’s just call it regression to the mean.” He scored 80 per cent.
