General Knowledge

This is just a random knowledge test that I came up with because, yes, I'm bored and didn't have anything else to do. It has a lot of random history questions because I made it and I like history. Don't like it then make your own you naysayer.

Can you actually pass this without cheating on most, if not all of it? I doubt it but give it a shot. And when you actually find out the right answers you can quiz other people and shame them for knowing so little.
