The following is a master list of trivia to hopefully be used in a revamped main page trivia template. Feel free to edit this page and add trivia to this list. Trivia should be changed biweekly with a set of four pieces of trivia that have not been used before and are unique from each other, one of which should be pictured. Crossed-out trivia has been used before and should not be reused.
