  • There is probably no subject that I would find taboo for my general knowledge quizzes, although I try to use photographs of the subjects I don't find offensive, unpleasant, or just plain gory, and I try to leave music, sports and movies to the trivia experts. In this quiz, which is #11 in a series of many now, and more to come, you will find a lot of subjects included.
  • I like to include phobias, manias and other medical terms. Listed below you will find the questions (but not the answers) for the next quiz in case you want to brush up on your reading.
