Trivia and other information

I have always enjoyed useless trivia and other odd information that doesn’t really make a difference in my life, but I like to log it away in my mind anyway.  Sometimes I will stumble across a situation where my seemingly useless knowledge comes in handy. Maybe you will find a use for in one day too!!
