    What pearl of knowledge has stuck in your mind over the years that is worth no money, won't help you in your job and won't ever come up in a trivia game, and will make people look at you strange? And no surfing the Net; that's just plain no fun.

    Mine is this: the fake video in Money for Nothing shown during the lyric "she's got it sticking in the camera lens" is Sally by the Ian Pearson Band.

    Dustin Hoffman was in Star Wars. You owe me dinner, Elaine.

    Ulaan Baator is the capital of Mongolia.

    Here's one I always wanted to know ... In "Boyz In Tha Hood," when Rickey pops in his highlight tape for the USC recruiter, who is the actual running back in the video? Because that guy could play. I'm thinking it was some LA-area running back from the mid-80s, like Ricky Ervins or Gaston Green. If I ever run into John Singleton or Maurice Chestnutt on the street, I'm gonna ask him.

    When former 49ers fullback Fred Beasley first signed with Auburn, he let it be known in the media that he wished to be referred to as "Frederick," because ...

    wait for it ...

    he had an older brother named Fred.
