BBC's weekly news quiz. I hadn't seen this before, but the BBC offers a weekly world news quiz. And they mean world. If you're limiting your news intake to Fox News, or even the NY Times, you might not be able to answer all the questions correctly. My showing was a pathetic 2 for 7. Granted, I've been head's down in development mode for the past few weeks, only coming up for food, sleep, and the NBA playoffs. But that's no excuse, I must up my ingestion of foreign news products at once! (Wait a second…is this some sneaky BBC marketing ploy to make me spend more time on their site? And did I just totally fall for it?) [megnut]

hmm, sounds like fun…. i nabbed a 5/7 but that is in part because i tend to read the yahoo most emailed category every day.
