An online lexicon of random or absurd facts.

Conceived as a fun antidote to the misery brought by the COVID-19 epidemic, this is something to read or skim through while on a coffee (or loo) break.

The challenge is for everyone to read one nugget – i.e. one random factoid a day (I will post them and I’m happy to receive any nuggets from you to post as well) and then share the knowledge with family and friends as a morning tonic or mid-afternoon coffee break mood enhancer or WhatsApp challenge. Think ‘trivial pursuit’ without the boardgame.

Oh, and you’ll learn something too. A lot actually. Think about it. One fact a day. If the health emergency continues for another two months that is 60 new facts you would not (presumably) have ever thought of learning. Now imagine how much you can learn in a year.

All it takes is 5 minutes of your time and the discipline to visit and revisit this blog daily. That’s all there is to it!

Have fun and let me know how you get on and get in touch if you have any comments or suggestions for some great nuggets.
