“I believe he doesn’t call it “trivia.” He calls it “common knowledge.”

“If that knowledge is so fucking common, then what’s the point?”

“He’s just being a turd. He wants to make the average American look stupid. You know, as if that were a challenge. Now I hear he’s become a fervent anti-Darwinist.”

“Wow. He is a turd.”
