Trivia: matters or things that are very unimportant, inconsequential, or nonessential; trifles; trivialities. But I've always been interested in trivia. They spice up a conversation. They make a person sharing the trivia seem intelligent and well-informed. Here are some trifles I'd like to share. Read up.

1) Look at your zipper. See the initials YKK? It stands for Yoshida Kogyo
Kabushibibaisha, the world's largest zipper manufacturer.

2) 40 percent of McDonald's profits come from the sales of Happy Meals.

3) 315 entries in Webster's 1996 Dictionary were misspelled.

4) On the average, 12 newborns will be given to the wrong parents daily.

5) Chocolate kills dogs! True, Chocolate affects a dog's heart and nervous
system. A few ounces is enough to kill a small sized dog.

6) Ketchup was sold in the 1830's as a medicine.

7) Leonardo da Vinci could write with one hand and draw with the other at the
same time.

9) There are no clocks in Las Vegas gambling casinos.

10) Leonardo da Vinci invented scissors . Also, it took him 10 years to paint
Mona Lisa's lips.

Who knows you may actually say to a friend putting on lipstick "hey, LDV, painted Mona Lisa's lips in 10 years." More to come.
