Fact: Chocolate contains the alkaloid theobromine, which in high doses can be toxic to humans, and in even small amounts can kill dogs, parrots, horses, and cats.
This means that despite its name, the Kit-Kat candy bar is not a recommended snack for your kitty-cat. I wonder how many cats have died because of this confusion.

Overview

Fact: Chocolate contains the alkaloid theobromine, which in high doses can be toxic to humans, and in even small amounts can kill dogs, parrots, horses, and cats.
This means that despite its name, the Kit-Kat candy bar is not a recommended snack for your kitty-cat. I wonder how many cats have died because of this confusion.

Fact: The most germ-laden place on your toilet isn't the seat or even the bowl--it's the handle.
The solution: Don't flush. Let the next guy worry about it.

There are "just the facts"--and then there are just the facts that will frighten the bejeezus out of you. And thanks to this little gem of a bathroom book, you'll never look at the world the same way again, without, er, dry heaving a little bit.

From the sneaky fish that can swim up our genitals to the E. coli bacteria lurking in the very water we drink, disturbing phenomena are everywhere we turn. Educational, entertaining, and undeniably horrifying, this book isn't guaranteed to help you, um, go to the bathroom, but it's certain to make your time there more...informed.

I like trivia books and thought this one might be interesting.... but between the author's sensationalistic approach to fact sharing and the little juvenile snarky commentary he adds to his "facts".... the book is painful to read. Best for a juvenile mindset. Reminds me of the MTV video review show with the lame comments from the has been cele"brat"ies.

Ireally enjoyed reading all these awesome facts.Some were kind of unbelievable,but a lot came with reference points. Great book! Very entertaining.

this is a great book for those who seek interesting facts and tibits of information. it contains different sections to suit those in need of certian types of facts. over all i found this book factual, but comical at the same time. i strongly recomend this book for anyone who is into crazy, random, and some times gross articals.

The first couple of pages were pretty good. After that it got a little redundant. It was a little too much on the crude side for me.
