The history of trivia in 4 minutes

A bunch of random facts about random facts

By  

YouTuber Jeremiaha Warren has compiled a very cool animated video showcasing the history of trivia - while the word has been around for more than 400 years, the games surrounding trivial knowledge have only been a trend for the past 50 or so years. True fact - this video told me so.

If anyone wants to challenge me in Trivial Pursuit, just let me know. I'm really good at the Sports & Leisure and Entertainment categories (the orange and pink wedges).
