Yes, I know, it was last year when I gave you this quiz. I have no excuse why I'm responding a year later.

1..Now, we are not looking for the head of United Russia, but the leader of the Orthodox Church, K_____ I.

7..Where you would gamble that most high-level performers would play.

Otherwise you show great learning.

10..Did the chimp live 'til 80? Was it one who played with Johnny Weissmueller? Geordi & NCor.
