A friend sent me this mini world news quiz.
Probably a mistake as I see it's a weekly event.
Just as well it's only 7 questions :-)

   I got 5/7 but in fact only knew 1 answer for sure. The others were
either reasoned guesses or blind luck. Distinguishing reasoned guesses
from blind luck can be difficult.

Quite!  I got 4 - I'd only heard one of the items in the news (the Paris Hilton / Banksy one) - Swiss Goat Traffic News doesn't get much coverage
around these parts...  :-)

^ I got zero out of 7 even though I had heard about Paris.  The  
answers puzzled me.
After reflection, I concluded I am glad I know so little about these  
items.  AGSC ^
