About this item

Description



About the Book



The Useless Information Society presents thousands of facts that will captivate readers with the joy of pursuing pointless knowledge--like the fact that organized crime accounts for ten percent of the United States's annual income, and fish scales are used to make lipstick.



Book Synopsis



What you may so cavalierly call useless information could prove invaluable to someone else. Then again, maybe not. But to The Useless Information Society, any fact that passes its gasp-inducing, not-a-lot-of-people-know-that test merits inclusion in this fascinating but ultimately useless book...

Did you know (or do you care)...

- That fish scales are used to make lipstick?
- Why organized crime accounts for ten percent of the United States's annual income?
- The name of the first CD pressed in the United States?
- The last year that can be written upside-down or right side-up and appear the same?
- The shortest performance ever nominated for an Oscar(R)?
- How much Elvis weighed at the time of his death?
- What the suits in a deck of cards represent?
- How many Quarter Pounders can be made from one cow?
- How interesting useless information can be?

The Book of Useless Information answers these teasers and is packed with facts and figures that will captivate you--and anyone who shares your joy in the pursuit of pointless knowledge.
