The brilliant minds at mental_floss have entertained millions of trivia buffs with their unique magazine and publishing program. Now they’ve produced their first trivia card game. Each card contains two statements. One is true, the other is not. Can you spot the Big Fat Lie?

Here’s one from the Arts & Entertainment category:
A) The first name of actor Will Smith is short for “Willard.”
B) Rapper Dr. Dre was briefly enrolled in medical school before turning to a career in hip-hop.

Here’s another from the History & Geography category:
