Are you informed?

We all gather information and store it away in the dusty drawers in the back of our head every day. Some of it is useful and some of it is just accumulated debris. Let's rummage through those drawers and see what we find.

This test is extremely difficult and will perhaps humiliate a few who decide to challenge it. There are no trick questions. Please don't cheat by Googling the answers. See how well informed you really are.
