Does Anything Eat Wasps? And 101 Other Unsettling, Witty Answers to Questions You Never Thought You Wanted to Ask (2005)

Author: New Scientist | Page Count: 211  

Living in a universe where antimatter predominates would be akin to living in our mirror image.” - Mike Follows

There's no single author for the book, nor does the editor get his or her name on the cover.  It’s attributed simply to New Scientist, the magazine from which the information within its pages is culled.  It’s a book of questions posed by New Scientist readers and subsequently answered by New Scientist readers.  As such, the quality dips and rises, as do the facts we’re given.  Some of the answers are even contradictory.  I love to read stupid facts while dropping a turd in the white chair but the book was put to better use wiping my ass after the final pinch.

1 question they didn’t answer was why it deserved to be printed? out of 5
