@Diane - I had a friend who used to marvel at the vast array of odd facts I carry around in my head (examples: dogs can see 3 times better at night than humans, cats 6 times; granite is radioactive and emits radiation and radon gas at sometimes alarmingly high levels; a sperm whale's blowhole is off-center). She asked me how I could explain knowing all these fact(oid)s and I said, "Well, Linda, while you're watching your sitcoms I'm watching the channels that run science and nature documentaries."

The un-one, that was an interesting retort

Diane you make a valid case.

There are things we know that to most don't seem to be useful but I think knowledge for its own sake is more than good enough
