Overview


Have you ever wanted to dazzle your friends with your command of history, science, and other important matters? No? Then this is the book for you.

Ronald Reagan once famously said, “Facts are stupid things.” The book you hold in your hands will prove it.

Did you know that Albuquerque’s population is 78% chupacabra and 22% victim?

Do you know why civilization started in Mesopotamia, and not Boise?

And did you know the reason you shouldn’t stare at the Sun is that it will probably shoot you and turn your skin into a rain poncho?

Disalmanac is a handy compendium of false facts covering everything from world history and economics to pop culture, sports, and more. All of which are incorrect, but try not to be so judgy about it.

But wait, there’s more. You’ll also discover a generous supply of Random Bonus Facts from the likes of Michael Ian Black, Neil Gaiman, Wil Wheaton, Weird Al Yankovic, and other luminaries who may or may not have a good grasp of the facts.
