UberFacts says it shares "the most unimportant things you'll never need to know" and I have to admit, that's a pretty accurate description of its content. Launched in 2009, the Internet project provides people with random facts on all kinds of topics.

From the number of janitors in the US with PhDs to the genius way Swedes protested their government classifying homosexuality as an illness, these titbits of information will make you an expert on trivia in no time. So grab yourself some broccoli (random fact: the vegetable is rich in vitamin K, and a few studies in older adults have linked a higher vitamin K intake to better memory), continue scrolling, and upvote your favorite entries!

As it turns out, there are some biological reasons behind people's desire to "store" trivia in their brain and the rush of excitement they feel when they get the chance to use it. According to psychologist John Kounios Ph.D., it's a lot like playing roulette, too.

"You get a rush or a neuroreward signal or a dopamine burst from winning," the professor of psychology and director of the doctoral program in applied cognitive and brain sciences at Drexel University in Pennsylvania, told Healthline. "I think whenever you're challenged with a trivia question and you happen to know it, you get a rush. It's sort of like gambling."

What a fantastic way to protest. Genius.

He said the benefits can also be similar to those of playing video games. However, unlike gambling and video games, trivia is generally not a potentially dangerous habit, Kounios said.

"I don't think there are any pitfalls. Like anything else that's fun, it takes up time."

Moreover, retaining information about things we're interested in can be like an exercise for the frontal cortex as the brain ages.

"That's the first thing to go with injury or with age if we don't use it," Deborah Stokes, Ph.D., L.P.C., B.C.N., a psychologist in Virginia who focuses on neurotherapy, said.

So there you have it, folks. Browsing trivia isn't a waste of time. It's a mental workout!

Nevermind Trump making me miss Barack Obama, he even makes me pine for the days when GW Bush was in power. George and Michelle's easy-going friendship demonstrates that democrats and republicans are not mortal enemies, as Trump would have you believe. A good leader unites his countrymen, not divides them like der Drumpf.

Not calling out either side here because i completely support peoples right to protest. But 7% of thousands of protests can still do quite a lot of damage and at least 25 people have died from protests / political unrest.

Do keep in mind that many of the shots were started from ‘trigger-happy’ (irrational) police officers. Literally a female photographer got shot in the eye by a police officer who willingly targeted her. She lost that eye (you can google it to check). (I am white, btw).

To the person "not calling out either side" here: for a group of people hung from trees until 1960s, maced when trying to vote (NC 2020), and terrorized across the nation on a daily basis to "keep them from getting uppity," 7% seems low.

Yeah there are always a few bad eggs in every group. Unfortunately a group is usually judged by their weakest link. These good protesters are trying to change America for the better, and the bad eggs tag along and take advantage of the situation.

To @scyth. You are so completely wrong. I sat in Kenosha and watched several very peaceful protests from my front step. Not once did those protestors get out of line. But there were certainly a lot of trump supporters there to stir up things and make people think they were. I saw a number of trucks where people broke off, and changed their license plates once they left the protest. And then threw their trump stickers back on their vehicles. You're just a complete racists. I've seen your comments here before and you sicken me.

Peaceful protests aren't exiting and do not sell well. Riots and looting on the other hand make excellent news that can be used to divide the country even more.

It is true. The news will say 'while the protests were mostly peaceful....let's look at this one violent event and replay the video clip 4,000 times'. So even though they say "mostly peaceful", the images are all of violence and looting.

It's just like the vast majority of people attending Pride are dressed fairly normally and only a few extravagant guys are almost naked or have buttplugs in, etc. But all the people against those focus on the few (I'm not saying those are doing anything wrong, by the way) and use them as an argument against the event as a whole.

@Natasha Chick. I really want to understand something, according to a report by Statista Research Department 157 Black man died in Police shooting in 2020. Little over 800 in total. And yet death of only 25 people has made you sound as if you don't support the BLM protest. What is the calculation here. Death is OK as long as there is no property damage or is it that you just oppose killing of certain kind of people?

Natasha Chick

I completely support anyone's right to protest over an injustice. All I was trying to point out is that you have to take percentages into context with the rest of the data to make it a meaningful statistic. 93% of 10 is a lot different to 93% of 1000. Im certainly not saying that the death of "only" 25 people means that I think its ok for police to kill people and I'm really not sure how you got that from my comment.

7% is a misleading number. If 10,000 people show up at a protest event, and there is even a single incident of violence, that whole protest is included in the "7%" figure, since it involved violence of some sort. And yet, in some cases the violence involved only a single person or two. So 99.98% of the people there were non-violent in such a case, not just 93%.

So 7% of the protests were violent. That's not good, especially when we know that people were killed, and businesses and lives were destroyed. They're making this seem like the "mostly peaceful' narrative wasn't disingenuous in the least. If I punch you in the face 7 days out of every 100, and I "Mostly peaceful"?

There are more terrorist attacks/threats on US home soil than terrorist threats/attacks from other countries. This is why their gun laws are pathetic, you are more likely to be accidentally shot by your own gun than by a terrorist from another country.
