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 city slogans to literary awards, from Westerns to Anne Hathaway movies. He completed the quiz from his Calgary hotel—where he and the Tiger-Cats travelled to play the Stampeders—and chalked up his score to the jet lag. “Also, apparently I know where Vladimir Remek is from,” he said. “So the endless hours spent on Wikipedia have paid off.” He scored 73 per cent.
