Wacky Wednesday #76: Trivia


 
 
Today I’m wearing trivia. (I was forced to because all my other clothes are covered in strawberry jam. Don’t ask.) January 4th is National Trivia Day in the USA. Really! The following pieces of trivia are ones I handpicked from various sources and I hope you have fun with some of these surprising facts.


















 

 
Why do we humans like trivia? I can’t speak for everyone, but I’ve noticed that most people seem to get a kick out of learning something that may not have been covered in school. Or maybe we appreciate trivia because we like to be surprised, and lots of trivia pieces include an unexpected element. Or because our brains are designed to be curious.

What’s your favorite piece of trivia?

    1. Hi Debby, thanks! I do think this particular outfit needed individual photos of the quotes. Trivial Pursuit, anyone?

    1. Thanks, Rox! If you want to learn more new things, you could spend TONS of time online learning new trivia. But you have a life!
