Random useless information is a great way to bring up conversation. For instance the red hot chili peppers could not write a song for months, because anthony had writers block so bad the band almost broke up.
What useless crap do you know?

The Blue-jean industry has dibsies on all the 14oz weight denim fabric being manufactured, so that a regular dude cannot purchase any for their own personal use. Ergo, the high price of Levis.

Don't drink the water... at least not when flying. The water systems on commercial airplanes are badly maintained, and the water is not particularly safe to drink.

The port side a ship is so named because the first ships had a huge rudder hanging over the other side (the 'steer board') side thus preventing the ship from 'porting' on that side.

The starboard side of the ship is so named because of the 'steer board'.

The word "posh" is an acronym for Port Out, Starboard Home.

Aparently when going on a round trip from England, that was the side with the better view.

The Brits wanted their cabin to be on the port side heading out, and on the starboard side on the return trip. I'm not sure what the view would be of, though.

Elephants can't jump (damn good thing too)

Rats can't puke (aren't you glad you know this?)

Goldfish change colours as they age (wish I'd known that earlier)

Male Goats are urine drinking,sex starved, stinky, creatures - which is why Satan is often portrayed as a cloven hooved, horned goat.
