The Useless Information Society presents thousands of facts that will captivate readers with the joy of pursuing pointless knowledge--like the fact that organized crime accounts for ten percent of the United States's annual income, and fish scales are used to make lipstick.
Thousands of things you didn't think you needed to know-and probably don't.
All you never needed to know, and couldn't be bothered to ask.
One person's useless information could prove invaluable to someone else. Then again, maybe not. But to The Useless Information Society, any fact that passes its gasp-inducing, "not-a-lot-of-people-know- that" test merits inclusion in this fascinating but ultimately useless book.
