About The Book
Do spiders sleep? Why are barns red? Why is there a crescent moon on outhouse doors? Are zebras white with black stripes or black with white stripes?
As the Xerox Corporation’s official webmaster, Bill McLain often fielded as many as 1,000 questions a day on just about everything under the sun — and beyond. The wildest, funniest, and even most astute are collected here (along with their answers) in McLain’s second volume that’s as fascinating and enlightening as his first, Do Fish Drink Water? A “veritable Internet legend known for having all the answers” (San Francisco Chronicle), McLain explains what keeps squirrels from toppling off telephone wires; why the skin on your fingers and toes shrivels up in the water; how seedless watermelons are created; and more. Whether it’s animal, vegetable, mineral, or something completely different, the answer is bound to be as interesting as the question itself, and certain to satisfy the trivia hound in everyone.
