    12. Seriously hilarious fun just exactly something I love This book is so full or random and rather useless trivia and it makes me so very, very happy I LOVE learning weird obscure facts I spent the 3 days it took to read this frequently saying Whoa Did you know Apparently Dr Suess invented the word nerd Win

    13. I m a trivia nerd and a list nerd, so it was love at first page The Mental Floss folks have a knack for knowing what trivia isn t too trivial everything was interesting I particularly enjoyed the 7 things banned by Wal Mart and the random Mr Rogers facts.

    14. I love this sort of thing, and mental_floss NEVER disappoints Lots of fun facts in list form for easy, and quick, reading.

    15. This book was funny and informative I will be annoying my friends and family for years to come with little factoids relating to almost any situation

    16. Do you like facts Fun facts, interesting facts, facts that are conversation starters Then this book is for you Filled with lists of facts that are just funny, interesting, and yeah sometimes down right oddHere are a few examples Five Presidential Fashion Flubs did you know that Thomas Jefferson sometimes greeted dignitaries while wearing his PJ s Questions that probably need answers Immediately can a pregnant woman drive in the carpool lane appears that is a yes Eight Everyday Items Brought To Y [...]

    17. Book 15 of 52If you love collecting useless information, this book is for you It reminded me of what a long version of The Amazing Book of Useless Information which is a favorite of mine would be like Lots of interesting lists and subjects Would make an excellent coffee table waiting room book.

    18. I m not sure how to rate a book composed only of lists Some of the lists were interesting Some of them weren t I love Mental Floss stuff in general, so I wasn t disapponted with what I read It has at least one list everyone can get interested in It s skimming material.

    19. I just love books of lists in any shape or form, and this one from mental_floss is near the top of MY list of favorites

    20. Guess it s not a good idea to read this in one sitting cause now I don t remember much o anything Actually, too much of this cannot be verified.

    21. The lists are pretty interesting, but the factoids at the bottom of the page are even so Definitely worthwhile for trivia fans.

    22. Very well researched and a lot of it interesting, but tons of dull material actually made it hard to get through for some chapters.
