After some musings, I picked the last archived show on the Seven Second Delay Archives page to summarize here. I reasoned that if that guy Jacob could transcribe 100 jokes for an old post, then I could transcribe 30 trivia questions for this one, right? Wrong. I paraphrased most of them, but as you can hear for yourself, questions like #21 are not for the xenophobic.

So, take the test on the honor code, check yourself using the answers on the show and leave your score in the comments below. The highest score will arouse suspicions.
