With the holiday fast approaching I decided to have an easy day by posting some more of that useless crap everyone seems to love.  Some of these are really interesting and others not so much.  I hope you trivia lovers out there make good use of this valuable and uninteresting nonsense.

I’m still debating with myself as to what sort of posting I should do for the holiday.  I’m not really interested in flying the flag with all of the normal corny stuff you might expect.  I’ve done it in the past but it leaves me feeling a little disappointed in myself that I can’t come up with something a little more original.  I’m sure to have it figured out by tomorrow.
