I don't understand this quiz at all. You really have to know the things to understand and answer the quiz correctly. Good teaser, but really, really hard.

The title sort of gives away the answer, even when you have NO clue what is being ranked. How long did you have to dig through tomes of obscure knowledge to come up with THAT one??
