Cats Are Capable of Mind Control



Cats are Capable of Mind Control and 1,000 + UBERFACTS You Never Knew You Needed to Know. That's a funny title, right? And the book is great too! Jam-packed full of facts you might not have known. For example: 


Did you know the Pentagon was constructed so that no point in the buiding is more than a 10 minute walk from any other point in the building? 

Coca-Cola and Pepsi are used as pesticides by farmers in India, since they're cheaper and get the job done.

Um yeah, let me set my Coke down and switch to some ice water. Hold on one second.


Ah, that's better. 

Now let me continue to tell you about the book. UberFacts is one of the world's most widely followed and successful Twitter accounts. They boast fun and surprising facts, statistics and graphics about everythiing from science to history to popular culture. This book puts a good number of those together in one place for you. 

That fact about Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (shown on the page photo above) is pretty crazy, right? And a good reason to propel forward if you are a writer or movie maker. :) It's just one of a gazillion things you'll read and remember when you pick up a copy of this book.

Entertaining, topical or downright bizarre, this book is a must have for trivia buffs. It also makes an excellent gift idea! I know two people right off the top of my head who would love it!

You can get yours on Amazon or buy it direct from Harper Collins.

  1. I knew Coke was good for unclogging drains and dissolving battery acid, so that doesn't surprise me it makes for a good pesticide.

  2. As someone who shares her life with felines I am well aware of their mind control powers.
    Not surprised that coke and pepsi make good pesticides either.
    This book sounds great.

  5. Allison loves reading up on fact in books like this. She'd love this book. Blah to the soda as a pesticide. Don't they use it to clean toilets too?

  6. I once thought it would be a good idea to boil Coca Cola (when I was 10). I ended up with a jelly like goo and a destroyed pan... It's save to say that I never wanted to drink it again...
