Okay, I don't mean to be rude or offensive, really. But isn't it enough that I have to delete this stuff from my e-mail inbox almost daily without encountering it here?

Don't get me wrong, I love learning things as much as (or even more than) the next guy, but have you actually researched any of these things like this that you post here?

I've seen a couple of other posts here like this, and some of the stuff in them was just plain wrong. It's almost never good to propogate incorrect information, not that I am saying this is the case with your latest one. Just... please!

trivia is sometimes outdated, that's the nature of the beast, and it's TRIVIA for crying out loud, not a college lecture!

yes i do research things that don't sit well with me......for instance, today's quiz listed tonsillectomies as the most common procedure and i knew that had to be out of date, so i found an ama site with the up-to-date info

but i'm confused, you aren't being "exposed" to this; you are exposing YOURSELF to it.....................you don't have to click on the ?? at all, kelly;
that seems to me to be the easiest solution............
there are people here that enjoy the daily trivia; it'll be here every day.
if you don't like it, for goodness sake, Don't look!!
