Packed with more than 400 pages, Uncle John's Bathroom Reader Attack of the Factiods is a fact-a-palooza of obscure information. Like what, you ask? Here are just a few extraordinary examples: * Bats always turn left when they exit a cave. * In the 1960s, astronauts trained for moon voyages by walking on Hawaiian lava fields. * Lloyd's of London insured Bruce Springsteen's voice for 3.5 million English pounds. * Physician Amynthas of Alexandria, Greece, performed the first known nose job in the Third Century B.C. * Military toilet paper is printed in a camouflage design, since white could attract enemy fire. * Elvis Presley always wore a helmet when watching football on TV. * King Henry VIII's ladies at court had a ration of one gallon of beer per day. * It takes the energy from 50 leaves on an apple tree to produce one ripe fruit. * The only country to host the Summer Olympics but not win a sinlge gold medal was Canada, in 1976. And that's just the beginning! So what are you waiting for? Attack!
