As an interview question this would be ridiculous, but as a quirky fun fact it's great! But, an employer or a company who expects me to know something like this, and values this kind of knowledge, no I definitely don't want to work for that kind of employer.

You'd never be dumped just for not knowing this stuff. All knowledge is valuable.

And your reaction to the questions you don't know is a good indicator of how you'll tackle the difficulties on your job.

Well maybe, but some knowledge is arguably more valuable than others - I'm just saying that if an employer really attaches great importance to this sort of knowledge, then it's a red flag for me and I'd probably not want to work for that employer - it tells me something about their "culture". But, it does depend on the way they ask it, and on their intentions when asking it.

I absolutely agree. The "how" and "why" are just as important as "what".
