I don't know about anyone else, but I love useless information. You know, those silly little facts that you might use if you end up on Jeopardy, but otherwise just take up memory in your head!

So. You will have 3 partners for this swap, just because it's easy to input more than one email address and it'll give us more ratings.

You will send them 3 pieces of useless information. You can google odd facts or go to the library and take a look at The Book of Useless Information. I have actually checked it out and read about half of it.

Be sure to provide where you got your information, but it still shouldn't be too hard.

Let's learn useless things!

Everyone is welcome, but don't flake. It'll take you five minutes to do this swap, so there's no excuse for flaking.

Quick turnover, so we'll make it a week long swap. I make it a week because poo poo happens and I'd hate to make it shorter and hurt someone's ratings if poo poo does happen.

3 partners, 3 useless facts!

Oh this is exactly up my alley!

Sounds like fun. I've picked my 3, now just waiting on partners. :)

one of my partners shows "sent" but I have not received anything in my inbox or spam box.....you may have to send it again

I did get the one from oddball, thanks loved them :0)

what should we do if our partner did not provide where they acquired their useless facts? I got three random facts, but nothing else to say where the info came from at all. Is it still a 5, since technically they sent the random info, or would it be a 3, since it didn't fulfill the swap requirements including the info as to where the facts came from?

Thanks for any input....

Didn't want anyone to think I was flaking. I work dispatch for AAA and this last snow storm sort of has me working insane hours until Monday. :) I didn't want to send out e-mails while completely exhausted. Will probably send out to my partners on Monday.

For candigirl: come on, let's not be that technical.. I would be pretty sure that was just a bit of absentmindness. After all we are here to have fun, aren't we? :)

candigirl 02/ 8/2010 #

I actually would not give a 3 for that, but I wanted to know what the technical aspect of it was...I have recently been berated by someone in the forums for giving a 5 for a similar situation, I was told that I was not being honest and it was "unfair" to give a 5...but I always give the benefit of the doubt, and I usually give a heart for almost everyone, so I was just asking...

nikkidear 02/ 8/2010 #

I sent all 3 of mine on the same day we got our partners, got 2 ratings. I've gotten 2 out of my 3 emails so far.

candigirl 02/ 8/2010 #

Nikkidear, I sent my three out right away too, and only one of my partners has rated so far...and I have received only from one of my three partners.

Candigirl, that's up to you. I just like having references. I would suggest pming the person and asking if they got it from a link or a book and which one.

Or you can just google it to verify it if you want.

nikkidear 02/11/2010 #

Well still no ratings from one and no email from one person. I resent to the one just in case it for some reason didn't make it through or got caught in their spam filter. The one that I have not received from has not marked as sent, so who knows.

graymojocat - I am available to angel if the need arises.

Hi nikkidear!

I was mixed up on the date today and didn't realize it was the 11th! Good thing I realized in time, I just sent it! Don't stress! :)

nikkidear 02/11/2010 #

Thanks! left ratings for everyone, now just waiting on my last rating.

candigirl 02/12/2010 #

Graymojocat, The references were listed as required in the swap...and I quote,

"Be sure to provide where you got your information, but it still shouldn't be too hard." (4th paragraph)..

I didnt' think it was optional....that's the only reason I brought it up....
