I have a series of pages with a couple of paragraphs each. Rather than leave the rest of the page blank, I have a whole bunch of “trivia” factoids. I'd like to put as many of those on the page as there is room for.
Imagine having a book with one page per day of the year. The main content would be a couple of paragraphs describing the day, but the page could be filled with “interesting things that happened this day in history”.
I can import way more than I'd ever need, so no packing or resizing or trying to get them all on. But definitely no extra pages with the rest of the “trivia” on them. And I definitely don't want to spend the time hand-typesetting every page by choosing exactly the right number of trivia entries, adjusting them after each edit, etc.
My only other slight requirement is that the whole factoid is there: I can't end the page with a half a fact. But I am assuming the
samepage environment will do this.
I have no idea how to throw away data though.
