Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of All Things WeirdSure, you probably know that George Washington was our first president and that Christopher Columbus accidentally discovered America in 1492, but did you know that there are more plastic flamingos in the United States than there are real ones and that Disneyland employees were not permitted to wear their own underwear while dressing in character until 2001?Behind the portrait of America that history classes, news reports, and boring documentaries have painted lies a strange and perplexing country that you couldn't imagine even in your wildest dreams. 
Featuring 1,001 shocking facts, this book reveals all the secrets and weirdness that you never knew about the United States.
From the thirty-two(!) bathrooms in the White House to the fact that a single U.S.–made hamburger may contain meat from 100 different cows, these wacky tidbits will guarantee that you'll never look at this nation the same way again!

  •     Very interesting book, have put it in a room where reading is important!!
  •     love it thank you
  •     I bought this book because I like fact books, but I wouldn't call it a reliable source of information.
  •     The facts are fun and entertaining although the authors "funny" comments on each fact should have been left out of the book. I would have enjoyed more facts and less of the commentary!
  •     Uninspired and boring .book itself in fine condition
  •     My husband loves all things trivia and this is a fascinating book. Much fun for a trivia nut like him.
  •     I really enjoy this book I love all the interesting facts that it contains.
  •     The book was okay. The subject matter interesting. I could have done without the author's constant little quips and comments.
  •     It's hard to take the "facts" seriously when the author is so annoying with his commentary at the end of each little section of strange truths.
  •     I gave this to my grandson and he did not stop reading it until the end. Now he is filled with trivia questions about the bizarre facts.
  •     It is a good read for those looking for a number of strange or outrageous events. We've enjoyed it - especially on long trips.
  •     Fun book
  •     Just when I thought there could not be anything more strange in the world, this fantastic book (Strange: 1,001 Frightening Bizarre Outrageous Facts about the land of the free and the Home of the brave by Eric Gryzmkowski) is discovered by me. My reading habits are somewhat unique and even strange. I enjoy reading all kinds of books on a wide range of topics. A few of my numerous interests include martial arts, science books, quote books, poetry books, Shakespeare, philosophy and even so-called new age topics, which are the absolute weirdest books I have ever read.The very interesting volume is organized into 12 chapters. The following is a sample of some of the chapters in this volume: Chapter one covers obscure American Laws to embrace, Chapter two is about animal oddities to astound you, the wonderful world of the American paranormal is explained in chapter three. If you like being grossed out than chapter four which is on weird American delicacies was written for you. Chapter five deals with horrifying American Hauntings. Strange roadside attractions across the U.S. are covered in chapter six. Chapter seven deals with odd museums and galleries. Mind blowing constructions are mentioned in chapter eight. There are four more interesting chapters that will keep you turning the pages.In conclusion, this book is not only entertaining but also provides unique information on a wide range of topics. If you love reading about strange but true things, you may want to check out this book.Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Martial Art Myths)
