    The World s Greatest Book of Useless Information is basically a list of disjointed trivia spanning a wide variety of topics The book seems designed for folks that read on the toilet 60% of the population does this according to the book since you can pick it up and put it down without losing continuity since there is no continuity to lose Some of this useless information is fascinating, some of it is surprising and a surprising amount of it is completely wrong Unfortunately, the fact check The World s Greatest Book of Useless Information is basically a list of disjointed trivia spanning a wide variety of topics The book seems designed for folks that read on the toilet 60% of the population does this according to the book since you can pick it up and put it down without losing continuity since there is no continuity to lose Some of this useless information is fascinating, some of it is surprising and a surprising amount of it is completely wrong Unfortunately, the fact checkers were not particularly careful and so we are treated to such old wives tales as water going down the drain counterclockwise in Australia This is supposed to be due to the coriolis effect, but it s complete nonsense The direction water spins down the drain depends on the shape of your sink or toilet and nothing else That s just one of many falsehoods found in the book Here are a fewfound within a few pages of one another A shrimp s heart is located in its head False it s located in the thorax.Sharks and rays are the only animals known to man that cannot succumb to cancer False sharks get cancer I don t know about rays, but I suspect anything with DNA is subject to the disease.The book is not even internally consistent On one page we find The longest fish is the oarfish, which is shaped like an eel On average, it grows tothan twenty feet in length, but oarfish of forty six feet have been found A few pages later The harmless whale shark holds the title of largest fish with the record being a fifty nine footer captured in Thailand in 1919.You d think a book of information would spend some effort actually getting the facts right, but no, I guess that wasn t a priority

    Need a gift for the 15 year old boy in your life who s forever telling you strange facts That kid is my brother, and this book was a highly successful Christmas present It now lives in the living room, where all seven of us in my family regularly pick it up, read a few fun facts, and then quote them later Caveat a few facts are unneeded, mostly in a center section about sex Pages can be easily torn out, and the rest of it is pretty great.
