I just saw a question on Twitter from @TheAmanda asking if she was the only one who knew the difference between Vulcans and Romulans. I responded straight away with a tweet letting her know I knew the difference too. Vulcans are trained to wipe any emotion out of their lives, while Romulans are highly emotional. They’re actually two species on the seminal science fiction series called Star Trek which I watched fervently many many moons ago. It’s amazing how facts like that can stick in your mind sometimes and that’s basis of trivia: those snippets of information about something totally random that can spring to mind as soon as someone asks the question.
If you’re a fan of trivia there are quite a few places online where you can learn more and more pieces of trivia and other places where you can compete with others in exciting trivia games. One such place is Triviala.com where you can take part in free trivia quizes and even compete with others for weekly cash prizes. That’s not the end of it though, if you get bored of the multitude of trivia quizes there are on the site; you can go ahead and create your own quizes, then invite your friends to come and take part in them. The site is based around it’s own monetary currency they call Crowns. You can earn Crowns by winning quizes or performing tasks like uploading an avatar photo etc. Once you amass your Crowns you can use them to compete for monetary prizes; the more Crowns you have, the more chances you get to win.
It’s a great site if you’re looking for a way to spend your time and if you feel your trivia is up to scratch. One to bookmark I think.
