You know that guy that annoys everyone because he always knows the answer? I want to be that guy.
I’m sick of attending trivia nights and staring blankly at my team mates when a question is asked. However, I’m sure that this skill would be far more useful than just winning a meat raffle at the local pub. A good general knowledge will definitely help my conversational skills as well.
Like at work the other day – meeting a girl from Belarus – perhaps I will be able to say something more than ‘Ah, Belarus…. I…. Have…. no idea where that is’. End of conversation. /crickets
