ContraYou might know them all already

Being a lover of stupid facts and pointless trivia I just had to do another top 10 when I seen this category. 'Knowledge', someone told me, 'is the key to power'. But after reading these I didn't feel the power so I think they are dud. That or there the wrong sort of knowledge. I'll leave it up...

ProNone

ContraNone

It’s a running joke between myself and Mel that I am full of useless trivia. Starting early in our relationship, and still to this day, I have a strange habit of suddenly saying “Did you know…” and coming out with something totally obscure.
