So, the King William’s College Quiz has come and gone another year, and as always, I was barely able to answer anything, but then again the real point of the Quiz is to go on a knowledge scavenger hunt. And it seems a shame that there is only one per year. So here is a – doubtless easier – quiz of similar mindset. And I know it is easier, because this Quiz is expressly nerd-themed, if you will. Cooperation and collaboration are, of course, encouraged. Googling is not, because come on, it’s not like you win a prize for this.
