The question would be better worded "What is trivia"?. Well, trivia is or are unimportant (or "trivial") items, especially of information. Usually these are unimportant facts that everybody has stored somewhere at the back of the brain and are useful simply in conversation or in games such has triva contests or pub quizzes. Examples of trivia quizzes can be found at and In the late 19th century the expression came to apply more to information of the kind useful almost exclusively for answering quiz questions: a perfect "trivia question" is one that initially stumps the listener, but the answer subsequently sounds familiar once revealed (otherwise the question would be considered either too familiar and therefore not trivia, or so unfamiliar and obscure as to be unanswerable and not as entertaining). The study or collection of trivia is known as spermology, which literally means collection of seeds. Trivia in non-question form can also be found at
