About This Quiz

Plenty of people are one-hit-wonders when it comes to knowing everything about a topic. They dive into something about which they are passionate, whether it's sports, TV, history or science, and pride themselves on an encyclopedic knowledge of the subject. While such passion is admirable, the trivia master of all trades is much less common.

This quiz is for the knowledge buffs, those who love the act of learning so much that it transcends subject matter. If you know as much about the greatest moments in entertainment history as you do about WWI, then this just might be the quiz for you.

Of course, acing a quiz like this won't come easy; you'll have to think way back to the stuff you learned in school, recall classics of American literature, add in a few global brand icons and some mindless television trivia, and top it all with a touch of current events to earn a score worth bragging about to your friends.

Think you've got what it takes to breeze through these questions and show off the breadth of your knowledge? Take our quiz to prove it!
