There's no such thing as useless knowledge. I keep finding actual practical uses for all kinds of trivia I've picked up over the last twenty years, and while it does surprise me every time, it certainly encourages me to keep accumulating it.

@Terrana if only this were true for music. I'd love to know the benefit of knowing, off the top of my head, that Michael O'Martian did piano on Steely Dan's Aja song. OK, sure, there was a plethora of amazing talent on that recording session, but I fail to find any sort of 'practical' use for it. It probably wouldn't even come up in a trivia contest! :(
