Brothers and sisters are notorious to see who can come up with the strangest, in hopes their conversational tidbit will steal the attention of everyone!  Its simply amazing what you can learn in a short Sunday afternoon while lounging around the family room.

Here are some trivia tidbits that may get passed around on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Hope you enjoy and feel free to share your favorite tidbits of information!
