Quiz: Are You Smarter Than a Third Grader? Find out with This Quiz.

From what I remember, most 3rd graders have to study geography of some sort. Actually, I’m pretty sure I spent more time on the states than on other countries.

4 Times Keith Richards Proved He’s Superhuman

Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards must have super powers. How else could anyone explain his frequent brushes with death involving drug overdoses, motorcycle gangs, electrocution, and even bombs? (Yes. Bombs.)

Quiz: When Did it Happen? In 1965 or 2015?

This quiz came out on MLK Day in 2015, but I feel like it’s still painfully relevant. This happened in 1965: That’s Ali dropping Liston like a bad habit. This also happened in 1965: That guy in the front being beaten by State Troopers is John Lewis. He was elected to Congress in 1986, and...
