It's perfect, whether you're looking to stimulate your brain or impress at a party! Featuring such fantastic and useless facts as: * Did you know that the U.S. Center for Disease Control published a blog post on preparing for the zombie apocalypse to teach the public about preparedness in emergencies? * Or that Saturn is so light, it would float on water? * Or that most mammals yawn, as well as some birds and reptiles? * Or that the first roller coaster can be traced to 15th-century Russia? * Or that Leonardo da Vinci sketched plans for a humanoid robot back in 1495? * How about the fact that the North Atlantic Ocean gets 1 inch wider every year? Written by an award-winning and accessible expert medical writer, The Utterly, Completely, and Totally Useless Science Fact-o-pedia is an extraordinary look at our seemingly ordinary world.
