I admit it .. I LIKE trivia, though it serves no purpose for me since I can never remember any to bring up in conversation.
But still, it is fun, so I’ve created this list of amazing trivia that I found to be absolutely riveting.

Amazing Trivia That You Will Forget In 15 Minutes
1. Snails can sleep up to 3 years.
Not so amazing actually since I managed to sleep thru 6 years of jr. high and high school. And when you think about it, what do snails have to do all their lives?
Sure, they leave great slime trails and make excellent targets for salt shakers and little boys, but other than that there’s not much more to do but sleep after an exhausting slide across a sidewalk.
2. American Airlines saved $40,000 in 1987 by eliminating one olive from each salad served in first-class.
Until I read this, I was convinced that there was an olive missing from my salad, yet no one would believe me.
Now I feel vindicated!
I am now searching for proof that the airlines have taken one pretzel from each bag .. I’ll keep you posted.
Wait! Airlines don’t serve food anymore do they?
3. An ostrich’s eye is bigger than its brain.
After reading this, I realized that I know of many people with the same problem!
But that’s an article about politicians I’m working on. For me, it’s usually that my eyes are bigger than my stomach…

4. Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour.
Well, I’d like to see anyone keep this up long enough to actually lose 150 calories.
This could explain why I was so skinny in the 80’s listening to Quiet Riot.
5. Finland banned Donald Duck comics because he doesn’t wear pants.
This is completely understandable. I mean, who wants to look at a duck with no pants on?
Besides, I understand that it is the law for all birds to wear pants in the city limits of Finland. I know that this is amazing trivia you will forget in 15 minutes.
6. If you pass gas consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb.
I tried to prove or disprove this, but two things stopped me … I couldn’t stand to look at a bowl of chili after the third day, and my wife threatened to leave me … although it was kinda hard to tell what she was really saying with that gas mask on.
7. In ancient Egypt, priests plucked EVERY hair from their bodies, including their eyebrows and eyelashes.
Now, this piece of trivia leaves a lot to the imagination, which is probably a good thing.
BUT, I would like to point out, you’d have to be pretty limber to get some on those hairs .. nuff said.
8. The ant always falls over on its right side when intoxicated.
I know this trivia fact isn’t true ’cause I’ve gone drinking with my ants several times and I’ve watched them fall over in several different directions… usually they tend to fall towards the wine though.
9. The average human eats eight spiders in their lifetime at night.
I don’t know about this fact … I’ve seen several spiders at night and never once felt compelled to eat one.
Though I hear that spider is tasty if barbecued correctly.
10. And now for our final fun trivia fact:
Some lions mate over 50 times a day… where do they find time to be the king of the jungle then?
I hope that you enjoyed this bit of useless trivia that hopefully will make you the life of the party.
