The h2g2 Post Knowledge Quiz

1 Conversation

As they say, another year has come and gone, and smiley - thepost has racked up another year's worth of issues, full of cutting-edge controversy, thrilling Researcher adventures, and prize-worthy poetry and prose. (Unfortunately, we never give out any prizes, being a totally virtual venue. Oh, and cheap.)

Of course, you all read every word we've written. Of course you did. You're media-savvy, and know this is the place for high-type info. Besides, you knew there'd be a quiz.

You didn't? Well, now you do. It's time to pay the piper. Click on the little smileys, please, and answer the questions. Then shuffle the letters to find the Post Birthday Code Word.

Isn't this fun?
