I cruise Facebook often. It is my go to source for news updates, current events, mom’s forums and just arbitrary and interesting things.
Recently, I’ve become obsessed with taking meaningless quizzes. Somehow, finding out what type of personality I have based on my favorite color is interesting. And seeing who my 80’s movie boyfriend would have been seems like a worthwhile pursuit.
Last night, I was taking a quiz about how well I know big 80’s hair bands. In a rare move, my husband asked what I was doing and moved closer to me so he could join in. Secretly I was excited, I would for sure ace a quiz about hair bands, as this was my go to music as a teen.
When we finished the quiz I scrolled through to find another that my husband would be interested in. The “Do you know everything?” quiz caught my eye. This one would work, my husband knows quite a bit of random facts, and he thinks he knows everything.
We launched in and he easily rattled off the answers. We came to one question about whether you could see the Great Wall of China from space, he answered yes. We were notified that the answer was incorrect. I tried to move on but he was perturbed. We finished the quiz and he was still a dog with a bone on the Great Wall question, although the quiz score, which reported that he did, in fact, know almost everything, momentarily comforted him.
On a Friday, the pursuit of trivial seems like a good idea. As a shout out to prepping the brain for a relaxing weekend, see if this quiz can guess your age with three questions. Or find out your nickname in a past life here.
