Not A Lot Of People Know That

Some books are written through years of hard work and effort; others are written after two pints down the pub. I'll leave it to the readers to deduce which sort of book 'Not A Lot Of People Know That' by myself and the mysterious F.J.Riley is.

There are two vitally important things to remember about this book.

1) Every fact contained within is 100% accurate.
2) It's free.

you can check out a few sample facts contained within at the following link, and also download the PDF

Here's a few facts from the book, to be going on with:

- Despite being involuntary, spontaneous human combustion is illegal in every country in the world apart from the Republic of Ireland, where ironically, it has never happened.

- Jack the Ripper was killed by a copycat killer who, due to very poor London lighting, mistook his idol for a prostitute.

- At any one time in the UK, there are at least six musicians who have fallen asleep after being hypnotised by metronomes.

- In America it is illegal in seventeen states to have sexual intercourse with a gameshow host.

I must agree with you that I simply cannot understand why this would be categorized as humor. High school should be skipped completely and replaced with mandatory reading of this book. Everything anyone could ever need to know...ever. :D
