My guessing was on point today. Probably only actually "knew" 5-6 of these answers, but ended up only missing 2. Just like in school, I can skate by pretty well with multiple choice.

Pretty cool quiz. Even as an American, apparently being a huge history buff, combined with one 4-day visit to London decades ago, was sufficient for me to know 10 answers for sure, and to be able to make logical or educated guesses for the other 5, heh.
