How many of these everyday bits of knowledge aren’t you aware of?
General knowledge is one of those awesome kinds of intelligence that you can’t really be ‘taught’ in a traditional sense. Being well-read certainly helps, but mostly, you either learn it from experience, your mistakes, or someone dropping a knowledge bomb on you. Have a look at these images to see how many of these things you either didn’t know or have been doing wrong your whole life. When the penny f**ken drops, you’ll know it.
Well here’s a good place to start. I’m not sure whether this sh*t is on the packaging somewhere, but it’d certainly make life at a party more civilised. Shouldn’t it have a recommended line for beer pong beers though?
Yeah, it’s common sense, but I’ve got to admit I wasn’t aware of it.
This one I had heard before. There’s tonnes of cool stuff in Spongebob that points to this as well as some awesome fan theories that it’s based on Bikini Atoll, an old nuclear testing site.
Yeah, this one’s old news. It’s just a pain in the ass that you can’t store it easily once you’ve broken it all down.
Yeah, all right, that’s the sound of a bloody penny dropping over here. How about you blokes and blokettes?
There you go.
Yeah, this one’s fairly old news too, right?
Unpopular opinion, but Harry Potter is just fantasy for children and adults who still like it should probably try and read something for grown-ups.
Um, tinder is the dry material you use to start a flame. I like the ‘matches’ pun approach, but tinder’s what you use to get a fire going. What do you reckon?

Okay, yeah, yeah, I’m today year’s old.
Well, I do now.
Who wants their pizza on an angle? That one’s just bloody weird.
Final thought: You might look at some of these things and think, ‘well, yeah, obviously,’ and you might look at some of them and realise how bloody clueless you really are. Just remember that knowing you don’t know is the first step to becoming an expert at something.
