F.A.C.T. is a combination of basic facts and trivia. The basics include the names of presidents, vice-presidents, states, and capitals. The blurbs of information following these basics consist of trivia. F.A.C.T. is also concerned with one's ability to be a successful, well-rounded cocktail party-goer. What this requires is some general knowledge of trivia in the following areas: books, music, sports, and movies. These facts will not improve your G.R.E. scores, but they will be useful both at cocktail parties, and when playing Jeopardy! And, most important of all, they will teach you several, little known facts about America and the people who make up America.
