That being said it can also be used by the absolute beginner as a learning tool, from which to dig deeper into each of the intriguing tidbits of information.


I hope that ‘What Do You Know?’ will inform, delight, surprise, refresh existing knowledge, and provide you with brand new trivia gems. With any luck, it will open your eyes to a part of our world you haven’t considered, will make you think twice, appreciate more and give you even a small sense of wonder.
