How fat do you have to be to become bulletproof? Why do people have eyebrows? Why do pineapples have spines? How much does a head weigh? What affects the color of earwax? How quickly could I turn into a fossil? Have you ever thought up a question so completely off-the-wall, so seemingly ridiculous, that you couldn't even find the courage to ask it? Maybe at the sports bar you were transported by the beauty of your beer to wonder, "How long could I live on beer alone?" Or, cycling through the park, you mused, "Did nature invent any wheels?" Or looking up at the night sky, you had a moment of angst, "What would happen if the moon suddenly disappeared -- if it were vaporized or stolen by aliens?" Full of fun factlets, Does Anything Eat Wasps? is a runaway bestseller around the world. It celebrates the weird and wacky questions -- some trivial, some baffling, all unique -- and their multiple answers culled from "The Last Word," a long-running column in the internationally popular science magazine, New Scientist. Tackling the imponderables of everyday life, sparkling with humor, and bursting with delightful erudition, Does Anything Eat Wasps? is irresistibly entertaining and utterly engrossing. So, go on. Put away your lab coat and your pencil -- science is fun again.… (mere)

En masse spørgsmål om ting, man kan undre sig over. Fx hvad første verdenskrig havde at gøre med hestekastanjer og hvor mange grønne kartofler man kan spise før man dør af det. ( )

When, in 1994, New Scientist began publishing The Last Word, the magazine's weekly column of everyday science questions and answers provided by readers, one of the journal's asked how long we expected the column to run.

Introduction.
My mate Paul and I can both hold a tune, but when he sings he sounds like Bryn Terfel, while I'm more like a wounded hippo.
