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 French cities and Russian words, to blood vessels and game-show sign-offs. This Quiz caught him as the team was taking the train to face off against the Montreal Alouettes and he was pleased with the score, he said, “all thanks to the great WiFi on Via Rail!” He scored 90 per cent.
