Obama technically became the first black president in 2009, when he got inaugurated .

Thriller was released in 1982.

Actually, protests in Tunisia began in the December of 2010. I know that Ben Ali was overthrown in 2011, but the commencement of the Arab Spring started in 2010. That threw me off, but other than that, good quiz.

Sorry - had forgotten to put 'video' for Thriller! Tunisia question clarified too.

Good quiz concept, but honestly us Americans have no idea what a number of these British things are...

@alphadog: The British things on the quiz are things that an average American should know. Of course, I couldn't even remember most of the American years either.
