The Book of Unusual Knowledge
Did you know peeing on a jellyfish sting will ease the pain? I didn't learn that from The Book of Unusual Knowledge. Because it's not a piece of unusual knowledge. It's a lie. Tested and proven several years ago by yours truly and...well, that's none of your business.
However, factoids, trivia, and trippy tales like the ol' jellyfish golden shower, but proven and real, are the heart and soul of the "cornucopia of information" that is The Book of Unusual Knowledge. Topics ranging from the animal kingdom, art, sports, technology, history, politics, and the universe populate the book's 704 pages, alongside quirky illustrations and unusual illuminations shared as articles, anecdotes, lists, and games. If you're wondering if The Book of Unusual Knowledge would be an excellent gift for Dad, here are some examples of the info contained within:
- Where does Thousand Island Dressing get is name?
- Are plastic bags killing sacred cows in India?
- Does NASCAR have roots in bootlegging moonshine?
- Did Ronald Reagan see not one but two UFOs during his lifetime?
In other words, yes.
