    A synopsis of the ultimate book of useless information

    The book, The ultimate book of useless information, is a fasinating treasure chest of excatly that; useless information. Altho it's entirely useless, it's outright hilarious because of the pointlessness of it all. The fact stated on the back cover, "Did you know that... Peanuts are used in the makeing of dynamite?", proves some of the point, but the whole book is jam-packed full of informaton that is, truely, useless.
