The funny thing about general knowledge is that it is... well... general. If you've landed here on this quiz, it means that you are the brave type that believes that you know enough about enough to be able to ace a quiz about nothing specific. That takes some real smarts, you know. If you think you're smart enough to ace this general knowledge quiz, let's get started.

So, here you are, ready to test your smarts against the How Stuff Works staff on a quiz of 35 questions that you can't actually prepare for.
