Quick and easy timezone: Google for e.g. “time paris”. It works for quite small places but there is scope for ambiguity so you may need e.g. “time paris texas” if you don’t mean Paris, France.

Financial literary quiz: the questions are way too easy, anybody with a bit of common sense and without any knowledge about investments should answer at least three of the questions correctly. My wife, who is completely illiterate in financial matters had four correct responses, using only common sense.
The only one she missed was that related to bonds, the only question which really needed some knowledge of financial things.
I am not surprised at all at the 2.88 US average, knowing how financially limited most US citizens are.
I bet Europeans wold have an average close to 4 out of 5.
