Think about it: Every day the mountains and piles of trivia and information tidbits grow. Every day new facts, data, incidents, economic statistics, demographic shifts, ideas, inventions, mistakes, crimes, idiocies, bloviations, lies, ingenious aberrations of behavior, and events occur. Consider the fact that knowing trivia and information tidbits can change our lives. For instance, a few people exist who know everything, or at least act like they do, and the rest of us have a hard time remembering what movie we saw or what book we finished reading an hour ago. But, armed with trivia, we can go forth to the morning coffee break and wax eloquent on trivia and tidbit gleanings, showing our superiority over the clods who know only the top five persons surviving on American Idol. We might eventually end up on Jeopardy. Or we may need a fund of trivia and meaningless information to finish the Saturday New York Times crossword puzzle. We may want to impress our date, our family, our mother-in-law, our boss, or some one we are standing in line with at the grocery check-out counter. Ignore the fact that some will complain that you are merely showing off and being obnoxious. Knowledge is better than ignorance. Trivia and information tidbits are the foundation of daily existence.
