I got it for Christmas and I swear it’s the coolest book ever, useless information or not!

Some gems:

The human brain is more active while sleeping than it is while watching TV

1 out of 3 snakebite victims is drunk, 1 out of 2 is tattooed.

Human taste buds register bitter tastes 10,000 greater than sweet tastes (I figure this is why everyone hates grapefruit lol)

A healthy male has approximately 8 million sperm, and females a like number eggs. This means than theoretically together, they could produce 64 billion offspring with no genetic duplicates.

In Connecticut:

In order for a pickle to officially be considered a pickle, it must bounce

You can be stopped by the police for cycling more than 65 miles an hour

The marriage of imbeciles or feeble-minded persons is illegal


In Florida:

It is illegal to have sexual relations with a porcupine.

In Maine:

It is illegal to step out of a plane in flight

In Montana:

7 or more American Indians is considered a war-party or raiding, and it is legal to shoot them.

In Iowa:

You may shoot American Indians if there are 5 or more of them on your property at the same time

One armed piano players must perform free of charge

In New Jersey:

All motorists must honk before passing any other vehicle




7 percent of Americans think Elvis is alive

Also in Maine, you can be fined if your Christmas lights are still up after March 1st, and you're allowed to take your shotgun to church with you in case of attack.

Does anyone want to have sexual relationships with a porcupine? That just sounds like it would hurt.
