Interesting ! Jul 27, 2007
The best one... in my opinion.. "All U.S. Presidents, from the start, have had blue eyes." Every single one! Now what is up with that? Very strange and it cannot just be called a coincidence. I am interested in hearing others thoughts on this. If you think you have a good explanation add your comments to this review please.
This book is horrible Jan 24, 2007
I decided to buy this book after seeing the cover. My mother taught me when I was younger not to do things like that, because sometimes you'll be wrong, but she was barely literate and didn't know who my father was, so I ignored her and this book arrived in the mail.
The first sign that something was wrong was the way the mailman was walking when he brought this enormous package up to my house. It says that it's 220 pages, but these fancy art designers fail to mention that they are incredibly thick pages, so the book itself weighs about thirty pounds. It isn't even a good centerpiece, either, because its existence means you're worried about ice breaking, and my friends got offended. They wanted to know why I didn't feel comfortable around them, speaking and interacting in the banal, juvenile ways I had been doing for years, but I was tired of so I bought this book which I thought I could read in the privacy of my room.
Anyway, the facts, as mentioned by a bunch of other reviewers are either way off or stupid. "'Birds of a Feather' do NOT actually flock together!", "It is against the law for a baby to occupy a uterus without a signed permit in Tallahassee, FL, after a mistake in the text of the cities [sic] laws!" This stuff isn't even readable, and sometimes it borders on dangerous. What is this supposed to be, "Carmel was invented in the middle ages as an experiment by Gypsies to start blood libel myths about themselves, after they saw how well it worked for the Jews!", or in their "Hand Myth" section (at least fifty of the super-thick pages are devoted specifically to "hand myths", which I thought was a joke at first, but it kept going and going and going) they told me that my little boy was more prone to psychosis because his ring finger is slightly shorter than his pointer finger, and that he was possibly retarded because his hand could stretch over his face.
Looking back, I would probably have preferred that this book been lost in the mail and I just got ripped off. Then I could be steamed at this site and these NICOTEXT goons, but now I'm angry and I've read this book. Talk about a double whammy. Which, by the way, the book says was originally an obscure term for bestiality in Middle Persian.
This book is excellent!!! Jan 10, 2007

Different kind of book Jun 19, 2006
This book had some interesting tid-bit facts. Would have been nice if I had received it as a gift rather than purchasing it myself. I read through the book once a lot of the facts I had already known and some were very suprising.
terrible Feb 28, 2006
Save your money, if i could get mine back i would want it doubled. Filled with spelling and grammer errors (page 27 "The Big Kahuna Burger" was not only eating in pulp fiction". I'm pretty sure that should be eaten, and a comma not a period at the end.), i run across several facts that are just plain wrong (page 17 "In Fairbanks Alaska a law forbids elks to have sex on the streets"... ok first off elks isnt a word, its just elk, and second off there are no Elk in fairbanks alaska, the law is about Moose. I live in Fairbanks, its a well known law from the early 1900s with a funny story about why it is a law, but there are NO ELK in interior of Alaska) Save your money and buy a book that at least went through a spell checker or a grammar check, and for God's sake, if you are gonna call them facts , at least make sure they are facts!
