    1. Not as funny as the title, and written before the Internet a time when info could only be gleaned from a library.Uncovered gems Ancient Spartan men who never married were fined The British outlawed the Scottish kilt in 1745 Subaru is Japanese for the constellation Pleiades In 1792, France created a decitime system 1 week 10 days, 1 day 10 hours, 1 minute 100 seconds Napolean changed it back to our system to please the pope Posh is an acronym for port out starboard home , stamped on wealthy Briti [...]

    3. For me, this title is a misnomer I m a fact freak and a sponge for knowledge, without regard for usefullness I didn t count, but according to the subtitle, this book contains over two hundred small facts and little known bits of tras triviaa that, if nothing else, will impress at socieal gatherings and perhaps win you a game of Trivia Pursuit.I doubt you will ever really need to know any of the facts presented, but they are the type of things that, after reading, make you say, Hey, cool For exam [...]

    4. An interesting collection of information that has been presented to answer questions that to be truthful never even crossed my own mind The explanations will intrigue you or have you shaking your head The author adds just a bit of humor to make the reading interesting while the formatting is simple The question is given in a bold format then answered with several paragraphs that either give multiple theories as to the origin or even in some cases information than just the answer to that particu [...]

    5. Ughhh, this book was exactly what it said totally useless As well as pretty pompous, condescending, and completely outdated.

    6. Really nice short essays that you can read on your on pace You have to be interested in general not really helpful knowledge It explains the origin of many things that you would not typically be curious about It is really a fun book and somewhat a reference for silly information

    7. If you like random trivia and facts, you ll enjoy this It was published in the 90s so some if is outdated I laughed out loud when he referenced the cost of a postage stamp at 29 cents

    8. Very interesting I now know many things I did not before, some of my favorites including the following 1 Ingredients listed on foods list the main ingredient first, the second most used ingredient next, and so on So if sugar is listed first, it s the main ingredient 2 Blue is for boys and pink is for girls because in most cultures boys were considered much important than girls kind of like China is still today and so they were dressed in blue to be representative of the heavens, and could there [...]

    9. I took a break to do some light reading What can I say It was on the bargain shelf in Barnes Noble and this is sometimes my idea of light reading.Was the information useless Guilty as charged Were the explanations accurate As far as I could tell, yes, although there were a few that seemed a little too tidy based upon my earlier readings, so either Mr Voorhees has found a few new authoritative sources or he bought into someone else s tall tales Was this new information for me Probably 50% of it w [...]

    10. Once upon a time, my boyfriend and I were going through some troubles We decided to spent Thanksgiving apart, but reconnected and reconciled by Christmas While I was quite sure we d work though our issues, his parents were apparently not quite as confident That Christmas, I received three gifts from them The first was a set of plastic cutting boards The second, an over sized sweater that might have come from the maternity department The third was a copy of the Book of Totally Useless Information [...]

    11. Some of the pop culture references dated the book published in 1993 and one or two of the factoids were incorrect misleading based on current scientific evidence male pattern baldness , but I enjoyed most of the entries Thanks to this book I now know the origin of the word posh, why love is used as a score in tennis, why UNC are the Tarheels and Georgetown the Hoyas, and why you never find cashews in the shell And my life is better for it

    12. One of the best white elephant gifts I ever recieved it is addicting because the information is so random and interesting Everything from why is the sky blue to why does orenge juice taste funny after you brush your teeth I have it in my office amung my therapy books to see if anyone will notice, it braks the ice well.

    13. Not useless at all.cially when read in ideal conditions And no, I don t mean the toilet, but if the horseshoe shaped seat fits In my case, those conditions were upon a lounge chair in a St Thomas resort consuming rum will not impede your ability to enjoy this one Very will written and extremely diverting.

    14. I ve been learning a lot from this, and I ve found that to fill your head with Totally Useless Information, it s even a better read when your reading it and watching something like Planet Earth at the same time Kinda odd, I know, but it works Thank you thank you thank you Hayley I wish I had a last name like Voorhees Such a unique last name sighs

    15. Appropriately named, there s nothing particularly unique about the information provided in this book that makes it than an average trivia book Still, a couple of entries worth checking out or researching on your own were the origin of the word posh and how chain mail letters can destroy the world.

    16. A lot of interesting strange facts Very fun to read.I have to add that there are some facts are from the american culture which i did not like For example, why a basketball team is called hoya I really do not care

    17. perfect tilde for this book totally useless info but cool to know some of the info is a little out dated some things where things that happened when i was like 5 but most are just gen info GOOD BOOK

    18. Interesting and amusing book about why Why do trains have a caboose Why does orange juice taste bad after brushing your teeth Why does popcorn pop My only complaint is that there are no references.

    19. Like the title says totally useless information Why do we even need to know this stuff Well, it appears no matter how useless something may appear, everything s got a curious little story and there are definitely some interesting tales within.

    20. Not so totally useless I had a great time sending pictures of various paragraphs to different friends who I thought needed to know the information.

    21. I picked this book out in a bargain bin because it seemed interesting Entertaining read Totally random facts that come in handy at dinner parties.
