Yes, much of it really is. And what is not trivial, is often misinterpreted.
Do you generally I think of myself as interested in important topics and events.
Do you usually try to answer trivia questions asked on radio and TV shows to win prizes for players answering trivial questions correctly?
Is trivia is important to you?

Do you agree or disagree with the following? “We live in society in which we have been encouraged to satisfy our desires to such a gluttonous degree as to render us intellectually incapacitated.
