Been cogitatin' 'bout the word "trivia." The word itself seems to make our passion, well, trivial. Something that only people in the trivia subculture really respect. I prefer "culturally relevant knowledge" or "core knowledge," but then that is just awkward and pretentious, ain't it?

How about.......
"facts that are stored in our computer brain memory,
and only accessed when the correct button is pushed"

That's perfect, Rowlanda! I couldn't think of a better way to put it. You really hit the nail on the head, with that definition!

I subscribe to the KISS principle, of course....

just did a quiz which told me the origins of the word trivia.
I thought it was trivium and quadrivium -- something to do with the seven important skils.
The quiz said it was three roads meeting.
now I don't know WHAT to think...

Makes sense....
Tri for three. And Via for roads....
I think it means we only have to give three alternative answers
instead of the current five choices.
