These are very interesting trivia and it is good to know them in case somebody asks the question. I remember a poem by Woody Allen which goes somewhat like this, and (someboy) who knew the answer but nobody asked the question...etc., and went on to explain in the analysis of the poem that the reference was to 'tin' and the question was 'what is the chief export of Bolivia?'. Kidding aside, I think it is wonderful to know these things. I myself am addicted to information.
