A great byproduct of the Information Superhighway is that it’s become the world’s greatest library of trivial knowledge at our fingertips.

Don’t we all reach for our smartphones during an argument over the most trivial of information these days?

It’s really great when we stumble on to some truly useful bits of information, especially when we weren’t even looking for it, right?

Well, if learning useful things on purpose is something you love, you should visit a website called Useful Science.

It’s an wonderful collection created by a group of Canadian grad students for all that love the useful trivia that exists online.

For instance, did you know that a quick look at the color green before you start a creative task can increase your creativity?

Or, did you know that tunes with heavy bass can make you feel more powerful?

The passages aren’t just random thoughts that someone came up with, they're directly related to research or reports with real context.

If you’re really into this kind of knowledge, you can submit your own articles and get useful science emails right to your Inbox if you subscribe to their newsletter.
