About This Quiz

Do you think that you are an expert when it comes to general knowledge? Are you a jack of all trades when it comes to fun facts with a finger in a million proverbial knowledge pies? While some things are thought to be simple common sense, common sense might just not be so common after all. After all, there is so much to know that there are definitely a few holes in the knowledge of even the people who seem the smartest. It could be impossible for one person to be an expert on everything that has been or is. 

From music to all the branches of science and mathematics, to world languages, to history, to social skills, to cooking and cleaning, to medicine, to animal behavior, the sum total of everything and all of its complexities is very vast. People who are experts in one field are often at a loss with other things. For example, a master brain surgeon may be at a loss when it comes to fixing the clog in their sink. An opera singer may have a voice tuned like a machine, but be at a loss when it comes to baking well. 

If you are a general knowledge whiz, put your skills to the test with this quiz!
