1,001 facts that will scare the s#*t out of you- Review

Updated: Jun 7, 2018

Another treasure found at Open Books. I love trivia books, the fact I will know something someone out there doesn't even if it's entirely pointless. This book is no different, but I will warn you, this book is not for the easily squeamish, offended or easily paranoid because if you are this book will turn into hell for you.

I'm not easily grossed or paranoid so this book doesn't do that to me it's just a great time killer with interesting if not dark facts. The subjects include food, terrible people, human body, sex, work, health, bathroom talk, drugs, weather and bugs. Some facts include:

1. Ursodiol, a compound made from bear bile, is used in western medicine to dissolve gallstones and treat cirrhosis of the liver.

2. Continuous farting for 6 years and 9 months would create energy equal to that of an atomic bomb.

3. Donald Duck was once banned in Finland because he doesn't wear pants.

I personally think the best part of this book is not just the facts but the little jokes the author makes at the end of each fact so that is 1,001 jokes on top of the facts. I will give this book an 8/10 for being both a joke and fact book wrapped in one.
