Where does news end and trivia begin? At the point at which you can’t answer a question in the even-tougher-than-you-remember News Cut quiz. There’s a lot of trivia in this week’s quiz.
Take the quiz, and then come on back to talk about your week. As usual, there are some hints in the image above.
This week, by the way, I met with ace MPR developer Ari Koinuma, to outline the specs for an embeddable quiz that will tally your score and compare it to the other trivia — I mean news — experts. It’ll be a few weeks yet but the prospect of it will give us all a reason to live for another week.
