Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.
- President Dwight D. Eisenhower

John Adams

He was sworn in as the first vice president of the United States of America, on this day in 1789.

So, I have come to a bit of a revelation. I know a lot of useless stuff. I mean... a LOT of useless stuff. Moreover, Kim is pretty S M R T Smart, herself. As such, we complement, and compliment (see? I know how to use each word correctly in a sentence... only people like Rev usually know stuff like that) each other quite nicely.

Moreover, I am wired in, yo. I know where to look for recurring themes in the trivia questions; "on this day", "geography", obscure historical facts... I am beginning to learn how to game the system. Which brings me to a philosophical and somewhat troubling question...

Am I doomed to turn everything I am good at into a job?

DOOMED??? The average man should be so lucky! A job often makes money, and while love is what life is all about, money is what makes love easier to enjoy. You are lucky to have the drive to learn more and want to be the bestest trivia shark around. :x
