This is the ultimate Trivial Pursuit or Jeopardy! challenge. Cram your mind full of useless facts. Useless, that is, until you come across the exact situation where recall of that info is needed. Then a brief flash of recollection has you hunting for the reference that you remember reading so that you can put that fact into the proper context.
I am right there with you, Christopher! I find that, with myself, what John referenced (quoted above) is very true for me. I have ingested enough information that I will pull something out of those cobwebs in my mind when the time is right. I might not always know where exactly it came from, but surprisingly, I often do. I have found that, when asked about things by others, I am often able to go back through websearches to compile a list of information for them to reference. I have saved a ton of things to my favorites, but find that I often end up re-doing websearches instead of referencing what I have saved. There are some exceptions to that, though.
I also have many other interests that sometimes I go overboard researching. At least I'm honest... :^)

CJ, your information is quite impressive. I can see how it would be extremely valuable for you as a resource that is specific to your site. I am afraid that if I tried something like that I would get caught up in the design/development of it that I wouldn't get anything else done

As for your comment “I’m Not sure based on that pic, how you’d use the database.” It sounds like you just saw a screenshot from the system main menu. If you explore the website starting with the Overview you will get a more detailed view. If you register you can also download a 37 page initial draft of the user manual with 43 screenshots. Hope that helps.
