Trivia is one of John T Yeska Jr.’s favorite escapes. He loves to get into the trivia of history and American culture. Trivia has a special place in people’s hearts as it evokes memories, facts and figures from throughout history. The popular television show Jeopardy is one of the best examples of this ongoing phenomenon. This show has been very successful for decades and continues to have high viewership. Contestants on the show are asked in a game format to recall facts and figures from the history of mankind including such things as geography, wars, popular culture, sports, literature, history and other entertaining topics. There are also a number of home games that follow a similar format including trivial pursuit which was a popular game that rose to the top in the 1980s. Today quizzes of all types appear on such mediums as the Internet and through apps on your smart phone. People often refer to Wikipedia to enhance their knowledge or to pull up facts and figures when they need access to a question in the midst of conversation with friends where the details of some fact are beyond their immediate knowledge. One way in which this is so often seen is in the world of sports. Sports brings up a number of topics about statistics, scores and team lineups for example that are often quoted by fans. There are also a number of history buffs that enjoy quizzing each other on the different elements of trivia. In a way trivia is a way of keeping history alive and it is a welcome format for discussion of relevant topics that attract the attention of people throughout the world.
