Trivia literally means details or information that have little to no importance and yet every piece of trivia we come across, we absorb it in a way our parents wished we did our studies. But, honestly, our trivia collection often makes us proud and we never miss an opportunity to show-off our knowledge of things, which might not be terribly important but it does make us seem smarter. And for all the 'smarty-pants' out there, we have a host of new trivia, which we are sure you would love. Today is Silly Trivia Day and what better way to enjoy it then reading some more trivia.
