Think you know what's happening in the world around you?

Well, Guru doesn't and we need your help! See if you can answer these amazingly difficult questions and win yourself the joy of being right!

Sorry to break it to you Lhinping, but your life was just made for TV


What is the world's most educated country?

A)Thailand, of course. All our kids have tablet PCs so they can do anything!

B)China... because the government says so.

C)Liechtenstein. Anyone who can spell it, let alone find it on a map has got to be a genius.

D)Canada, where over half the population has either an undergraduate or postgraduate degree, according to a study conducted by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). Based on figures provided by the OECD, financial news outlet 24/7 Wall St. calculated the 10 countries with the highest proportion of adults with college degrees. Following Canada is Israel, Japan, the United States, New Zealand, South Korea, the United Kingdom, Finland, Australia and Ireland.


How can you get children to eat their veggies?

A)By telling them the monster under their bed won't hurt healthy kids.

B)By hiding peas in their milk (and hoping they won't choke on it).

C)By using good ol' fashioned threats and ultimatums.

D)By giving veggies cool-sounding names like "X-ray Vision Carrots" or "Power Punch Broccoli". The study run by Cornell University and published in the Journal of Preventive Medicine found that over 1,000 kids in seven New York elementary schools were twice as likely to eat their vegetables if it had an awesome kid-friendly label. Other monikers that worked on kids were "Tiny Tasty Tree Tops" and "Silly Dilly Green Beans". We guess this trick makes sense, but as we get older perhaps we should rename veggies for what they actually do to us: "Assy Gassy, Farty Sharty".


Why might some subscribers have been upset with TrueVisions last Sunday?

A)Because TrueVisions' subscribers like to get mad no matter what day it is.

B)Because every channel was showing a marathon of whitening deodorant commercials.

C)Because the company interrupted nightly lakorn for a breaking news update.

D)Because the broadcaster decided to axe the "Panda Channel". Although the channel apparently had many fans, those of us who aren't idiots can agree that TrueVisions finally did something right by cancelling the most pointless reality show ever. Since airing in 2009, the 24-hour channel followed local panda celeb Lhinping in her enclosure at Chiang Mai Zoo, doing amazing things like dancing Gangnam Style and solving complex physics equations. Just kidding, all she did was eat, chill, sleep, poop and occasionally look cute - what else are pandas supposed to do?
