More About This Title The Mega Book of Useless Information

English

Did you know that fingernails are made from the same substance as a bird’s beak? That cigarettes contain honey? Or that a ferret will die if it cannot find a mate? For anyone fascinated by the trifling, or just plain desperate to know the answers to the most bizarre of questions, this volume is packed with a bevy of utterly useless data drawn from every imaginable area of knowledge. Tidbits include the finding that the amount of heat your body emits in 30 minutes is enough to bring half a gallon of water to a boil, and such nuggets as the fact that there are more than 30,000 diets on public record, and that the only animals that can get sunburn are pigs and humans. Humorous and alarmingly trivial, this is a fun look at all the things you never thought you would need to know.
