It’s amazing the amount of trivial information that gathers in our minds. Some of it pertains to our day-to-day business. A lot of it simply soaks in unnoticed as we go about our affairs with friends, family, and the daily news as time goes by. It’s beyond interesting that facts we learn in school can linger in our memory before being recalled by a question. An interesting and compelling explanation may exist about something that’s been a part of our lives all along.  That we’ve experienced every day and never really looked deep into our psyche.

How many things do you pass by in a day that you take for granted? Here’s a quiz testing your everyday knowledge mixed with things you may have learned and forgotten, things you never knew might be interesting and some pure trivia that might blow your mind.
