It's amazing the amount of trivial information that gathers in our minds. Though as we see from Jeopardy, it can be very beneficial to know! Some of it pertains to our day-to-day business.
A lot of it simply soaks in unnoticed as we go about our affairs with friends, family, and the daily news as time goes by. It's beyond interesting that facts we learn in school can linger in our memory before being recalled by a question. An interesting and compelling explanation may exist about something that's been a part of our lives all along.
That we've experienced every day and never really looked deep into our psyche. How many times have you been asked a question about something you knew? You knew the answer but couldn't come up with it on the spot.
How many things do you pass by in a day that you take for granted? Here's a quiz testing your everyday knowledge mixed with things you may have learned and forgotten, things you never knew might be interesting and some pure trivia that might blow your mind.
Let us introduce you to the Listicle Liege, the Article Aficionado, the one and only Nathan. Since creating his first photo collage at the age of five with images clipped from his mom’s Chatelaine magazines (all of them), it’s been nearly impossible to stem this one’s tide of visual learning. Be it the annals of history or the latest celeb gossip, Nathan has probably researched it, likely already has a folder of relevant photos on his desktop, and definitely learned a lot of interesting facts to go with those images. Whereas most well-read adults have bookshelves full of classic literature, Nathan’s stacks are composed of National Geographic and TIME special editions and a curated section of first-grade readers (for inspiration). If you prefer picture books to wordy novels, listicles by Nathan are right up your alley.
