I find them to be ok. Some things I know and other things I don't. Todays questions were very specific such as how many calories in a bowl of Panera clam chowder soup. I had no idea and I really didn't care to know the answer. I don't eat at Panera (the closest one to me is 90 min away, so 3hrs round trip) and I don't eat dairy because I have food issues.

Yes, I know, I'm awesome, thanks!

Iffilayo--sorry !! I didn't realize that it was the trivia on SP...I find that the questions are based on what is going on with the best and safest way to lose weight.

Some of the trivia are out-of-date.

Be caring, patient, gentle, compassionate and loving whenever possible, and never forget to extend those qualities to yourself.

I like the trivia, but yes some are way too technical and not even important imo. What vitamins does a plantain have? Uh...I don't really care or eat those haha! But I still enjoy it, I wish you could do more than 3 a day sometimes.

I used to do them and enjoyed them. But it's gotten to the point that so many of the answers are outdated that I gave up. No more.

After 8 years of doing trivia daily, I've stopped. It was too frustrating, because often the answer according to google was different then Sparks.

A few seem more technical but a lot of them stem from information I have learned using SparkPeople or find to be common sense.

I do learn from them. But, more often than not, the ones I get incorrect are really eye opening.

I learn a lot from them, but I'm so competitive . . . what does it matter how many questions I need to get three right, but I get SO FRUSTRATED at myself when I get one wrong!! LOL. If you have never played, go to MY TRACKERS and you'll see a trivia link. It's a fun way of learning some interesting things about health.

Yes, mixed bag for me. Some days, like today, I go 3 correct and none incorrect. Some days, it takes 6 -8 questions to get 3 correct. It's a learning tool for me.
