July 12:

Trivia day! Today we'll look at a short list of interesting facts posted around Thanksgiving time last year on The Huffington Post. Things like "The word 'time' is the most commonly used noun in English" or "An 'earworm' is a song that gets stuck in your head." Also check out this list from Ebaum's World (Yes, Yiddish Cup and all)

1) Write down at least four of the facts.

2) Pick one of the facts and research the topic for a couple minutes. Think of parallels with other things (for instance, on the Ebaum's World site one of the facts is that 1998 is as far away as 2030. This is similar to the fact that in the spectrum of time, we are closer to the life of cleopatra, than she was while living to the people who build the Great Pyramid of Giza.

3) Write a few fragments about different things you learned/knew about the topic you researched. If one aspect doesn't organically link to another just make them separate snippets.

4) Repeat as often as you can.
