My problem is that I'm such a trivia nerd I actually find interesting things in some of the above!

Now then,

"Interesting facts about life insurance that you might not know"
"Balancing your checkbook"
"Wart removal throughout the ages, stump vs laser"
"Britney,the real story of her breakup with Justin"
"Pond scum stats from 1978:implications"

I've done articles that were even more boring than the above though! Honest! So you'll never know what knowledge you'll need, it sometimes pays to be a trivia nerd.
