I'm an information packrat. Strange things, little tidbits of information, anything trivia-related; they all fascinate me. And now I know how they get the horses to the Olympics.
An unknown need has been fulfilled. =)
(By the way, if you ever encounter me at a convention, I play a mean game of Trivial Pursuit. And I've tried out for Jeopardy, twice, and made it to the final round in the college tournament candidate search. Yes, you do get to play with the buzzers.)
