All knowledge is power. Every detail we acquire can one day be a wonder. So we must never turn down even the most minute idea to commit to memory. With all the game shows about superfluous knowledge... who knows what can net you some heavy coin. And knowing all sorts of things can be great conversation with tons of laughs.Redditor u/GrZneK wanted to know what useless knowledge we've all acquired that can be good for fodder by asking.... What are some facts that are useless but still fun to know?

If the Earth is ever hit by a super powerful Gamma Ray burst it would arrive at nearly the speed of light so we'd never see it coming. It would also instantly kill all life on the planet.

Christianity began where modern day Israel is. Israel is on the continent of Asia.
Therefore, technically Christianity is an Asian religion. RunDNA
Asia is kinda interesting anyway. I feel like Arabs have as much in common with Koreans as we do, yet they are both Asians whereas Europeans aren't. Eggplantosaur
