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!) And try to beat his very Canadian score at our very Canadian Canada Day Quiz here!

This week, we tested Dyakowski on everything from British comedians to Scotch whisky, from Game of Thrones to Saturday Night Live. How did he do, after a strong showing last week? “I’ll be hearing from a lot more people this week!” He scored 70 per cent.
