Quiz Description

Perhaps "hates" is not the correct word to use here, but my first quiz was "Things GersonA Really Likes," so it's only natural that this is the follow-up. This is a quiz on subjects that I generally tend to suck at, like literature and art and television and potent potables. Good luck, and here's to hoping you know a little more about these topics than I do!
