Our brains, supposedly, should be good for keeping us alive by allowing us to remember important information used for our survival. Of courseI often catch myself, especially in the throes of a moment, recalling odd facts that are completely useless, irrelevant, and slightly interesting rather than really helpful. Why on earth do I remember things like who invented the dinner knife, that there are more lawn flamingos in the world than real ones, and how to cut a bale of hay with a hay bale? Perhaps only the mind can answer this question. But, be that as it may, some of these trivia facts are sometimes useful because they’re great conversation starters or fill in the gaps of awkward silences, only to make them even more awkward later.
