Description

It's the big book for the smallest room in the house, and sure to satisfy even the most eclectic tastes. Whether you're interested in famous people, odd inventions, sports facts, or TV trivia, this giant volume has it all: humor, science, fashion, food, history, entertainment, and culture. Test your knowledge of black holes or Zen Buddhism, or find out how Ivory Soap, Levi's jeans, and Post-It notes grew from simple ideas to great American success stories. Among the fabulous facts: the childhood rhyme "Ring Around the Rosie" is actually a description of London's bubonic plague in 1665. Did you know that if you eat enough carrots, their carotene pigment will turn your skin pink-orange? There are also handy tips, such as which scents make the best aphrodisiacs, and how to escape from a pool of quicksand.show more
