Weird-o-pedia: The Ultimate Collection of Startling, Strange, and Incredibly Weird Facts About (Supposedly) Ordinary Things

Author(s): Alex Palmer


WEIRD: 1. Of, relating to, or suggestive of the preternatural or supernatural. 2. Of a strikingly odd or unusual character; strange. 3. Of or relating to fate or the Fates. Now that you've got the definition check out the weird and wonderful facts in this massive collection of oddities: the brain is the fattiest organ in the body (All the Zumba in the world won't help you drop that weight); salt is the only rock eaten by humans (Although some rocks can be snorted); november 19 is world toilet day (No comment); rattlesnake mating sessions can last more than 22 hours (Ouch); and psychologists can assess your personality from how you dip fries in ketchup (Nice fries, sociopath). Now the next time someone tells you smugly that starfish have no brains, you can counter with any one of these 1,045 facts and remain king or queen of the cocktail (or kegger) chatter.
