The Test of General Ignorance

diolicaDiolica on 03/23/2009

Trivia Quiz Epictetus said that "It is impossible for a man to learn what he thinks he already knows". I hope you'll contradict him by taking this quiz, which demonstrates that sometimes what we think we know has nothing to do with real facts, but rather with myths and legends.

The quiz is entirely based on The Book of General Ignorance, written by John Lloyd and John Mitchinson. It was "Amazon's number one Global bestseller for Christmas 2006".

Incredible! I knew a lot of those answers and you still doubted
myself. Unfortunately, I've got the water question wrong...

Even tho I stunk at it. This was a fun and interesting quiz. You're shows you what you thought you knew.

I had always thought I was pretty well-informed, but clearly I'm hopelessly uninformed. And the answer to #8 floors me--I've never heard anything but the conventional wisdom on that one, and even learned the "wrong" answer in school. Yikes!
