Quiz Description

Get it? Pop quiz? Popielinski? Here's my first contribution to Alpaca Farm. There's no theme; it's just a bunch of questions that I hope will be fun to work on. They probably range broadly in difficulty, but I'm also interested in honing my difficultometer by running these by y'all. Enjoy!
