Most people have acquired extensive knowledge about many topics. Some individuals, for example, know that bubbles in Guinness beer seem to sink to the bottom rather than float to the top like every other beer. Other individuals may know that French fries originated in Belgium, Michael J Fox's middle name is Andrew, the pupils in goats’ eyes are rectangular, the first US cheerleaders were men, and Fidel Castro once worked as a Hollywood extra.
