10 Trivial Facts You Can Use To Impress Your Friends

Have you ever been just sitting around with friends and, all of a sudden, one of them blurts out some piece of trivia? Maybe you have a Sheldon Copper (‘Big Bang Theory’) or Cliff Clavin (‘Cheers’) in your inner circle.

Well, the next time you’re around a group of friends and you want to impress them with some piece of useless trivia, you have come to the right place.

Many people tell me that I’m the King of useless trivia. Believe me, its NOT a bad thing. We call it useless because it just takes up space in our brains and really has no practical use, other than maybe another friend passing it on to their friend.

So, with that in mind, here are 10 trivial facts to impress your friends with.
