Trivia I find interesting

  • Slate magazine's Explainer column answers all sorts of interesting questions.

  • Wired News's Ephemera section is also a pleasant waste of time.

  • There are many things -- even apparently simple ones like why countertop coffee stains are darker at the edges, or why flags flutter instead of flying straight in the wind -- that science still has trouble explaining.

  • People coming to this site from search engines tend to be looking for information on Aeron chairs in Canada, flash memory USB keychains, photos of Bjossa the killer whale, and the lyrics to "Hyakugojyuuichi" ("One Hundred and Fifty-One"), which is the original theme to the Pokemon cartoon.

    I have sat in an Aeron chair, I own a USB keychain, and I took photos of Bjossa before she died, but I do try to avoid Pokemon.
