Here is enough useless information for everyone. In "The Book of Totally Useless Information," Don Voorhees has compiled over two hundred explanations for the not-so-important questions in life. Why is the sky blue? Why does orange juice taste funny after you brush your teeth? Why is a left-handed pitcher known as a "Southpaw"? Why is the National Hockey League Championship Trophy called the Stanley Cup? When did it first become offensive to extend the middle finger? Why are diamonds measured in carats? What makes stainless steel stainless? Why does a Mexican Jumping Bean jump? Why do spokes on wagon wheels appear to move backward on television or movie screens? What is a best boy, a key grip, and a gaffer? Chockful of fascinating trivial facts and anecdotes, "The Book of Totally Useless Information" will entertain readers of all ages. Illustrated throughout, this useful book will satisfy the curiosity of everyone who wonders why.
