Ever wonder what makes ice cubes cloudy? Why birds on highvoltage lines don't get electrocuted? Or if a person traveling in a car at the speed of sound could still hear the radio? In his follow-up to What Einstein Didn't Know, Robert Wolke gives us another waggishly entertaining science book disguised as a collection of trivia questions, bar bets, and amazing facts about everything from gravity to acoustics. Find out how a whip cracks, why shark attacks make airplanes safer, whether a bullet fired into the air could kill somebody when it comes down, and if in fact a last-second jump in a falling elevator could save your life.
