Blurb: “For everyone who thinks that they know a lot of useless trivia, this book is for you. It takes many of the things you thought you knew and shows you how ignorant you really are. Not a good book for those with a fragile ego, but if you have a thirst for knowledge then this book is for you. Great to keep as a small reference book. Here are a couple of things I learned: America is not named after Amerigo Vespucci, If you cut an earthworm in half you do not end up with two worms, and a chicken actually can live a long time with its head cut off.”
