    Trivial Pursuits -- DUE: Nov. 9, 2021

    Theme
    As I age, I realize my brain is full of completely useless facts and trivia. Do I really need to know that Alfred Hitchcock was afraid of eggs or that the male octopus dies after mating? I think not. Why do I remember that Coca-Cola used to contain small amounts of cocaine or that Starbucks is named after a Moby Dick character?

    So, rummage through your brain, and find some trivia that inspires you to create ATCs. Prowl the internet for useless or interesting facts--any subject, anything you remember for no reason or deem interesting. Do a little research into a favorite subject and spread your (potentially useless) knowledge.

    Note: Be sure to write your trivial fact on the back of your ATC, or incorporate it into your design. Recipients should learn something completely useless or interesting.

    · Send 3 or 6 cards.
    · Your name, user name, swap name, location on the back of each card
    · Cards must be ATCs (not APCs).

    Media

    All media are welcome, except for digital or photography. Please keep cards flat. No bulky embellishments!

    Mailing

    · Do not send envelopes. I will provide them.
    · Include a large self-addressed label.
    · PM me for my address when you are ready to mail. My North Babylon, NY, address is correct.

    Postage

    U.S. players: Please include one forever stamp for 3 cards; add 2 additional-ounce stamps (or an extra forever stamp) for 6 cards.
    International players: Please include one U.S. global forever stamp or $1 (U.S.) for 3 cards, 2 global forever stamps or $2 (U.S.) for 6 cards. I can also accept PayPal; please contact me for my email address.

    Deadlines/iTrader

    Cards must be received by Nov. 9, 2021. Please allow sufficient transit time, as late cards will be returned.

    A host card is appreciated, but in no way required. If I’ve missed anything here, please PM me.

    Did you know?

    The hashtag symbol is technically called an octothorpe.

    It’s been said that nearly 3% of the ice in Antarctic glaciers is penguin urine.

    China owns nearly all of the pandas in the world, even the ones you see at zoos. They rent them out for about $1 million a year.

    Baby porcupines are called “porcupettes”.


    I found it on the internets so it must be true.

    A group of flamingos is called a “flamboyance”.

    It’s been estimated that a new baby can rob parents of anywhere between 400-750 hours of sleep in the first year.

    Since 1945, all British tanks have come equipped with tea making facilities. OH THAT CAN'T BE TRUE~!

    A snail can sleep for three years.

    The Cookie Monster has a real name. It’s Sid. ARE YOU SURE?

    In 2009, Scottish scientists searching for the Loch Ness Monster found 100,000 golf balls instead.

    There’s a village in Norway called Hell, and it freezes over every winter.

    Elephants can’t jump.

    I KNEW THIS ONE: It takes light from the Sun 8 minutes to reach Earth.

    Lurking. My sister and I once spent an afternoon floating on air mattresses on a lake comparing the totally useless things we learned over 30 years of work that were totally useless otherwise.
