Quiz Time! You vs. 'Canada's Smartest Person'

Can you do better than 83%?


Welcome back to the Maclean’s Quiz, a weekly diversion designed to test your trivia skills. Good luck, and remember: no Internet assistance allowed.

To bring you some competition, we invited ‘Canada’s Smartest Person,’ Peter Dyakowski, to take the Maclean’s quiz. Dyakowski is a lineman with the CFL’s Hamilton Ticats, and also won CBC’s ‘Canada’s Smartest Person’ contest in 2012.

This week, we test your trivia skills on everything from the master of fear to popular beer. He scored a modest 83 per cent. “I blame it on it being early in the morning and my adrenal gland (which I now know is located above my kidneys!) wasn’t firing on all cylinders,” Peter writes us in an email. Still think you top his score?

Take the quiz!
