Hot on the heels of the highly popular first volume, this entirely new book exposes 50 more facts that have been hiding under the rug:
Out of every 100 people, ten weren't fathered by the man they believe is Dad
Al Qaeda attacks have increased substantially since 9/11
Most corporations pay no federal income tax
A DEA judge ruled that pot is medically beneficial
A leading Pentagon hawk admitted the Iraq invasion was illegal
George Washington embezzled government funds
Scientists are recreating the highly lethal 1918 Spanish Flu virus
Several thousand Americans were held in Nazi concentration camps
The government has a database of every child porn image ever made
Gandhi refused to let his dying wife take penicillin yet took quinine to save himself
Well over 300,000 tons of chemical weapons have been dumped into the sea
From SUV kill rates to the military's secret discharge codes, from Prozac in our drinking water to God's real name, from Condoleezza Riceís perjury to America's incarceration fetish, plus the documents that prove the Vatican has been directly covering up the pedophile priest scandal. It's all here.
You'll also discover silence-breaking information about drug warning labels, nuclear accidents, cigarette butts, caviar, hysterectomies, head transplants, lynching, Freud, Aristotle, Shakespeare's sex jokes, the Barbie doll, men's clitorises, and more...
These small books contain 50 facts of things that are hidden from the public. From the US government lying about terrorists' convictions to fetuses masturbating, some facts are funny, some shocking but all of them are interesting. If you are into trivia this is the book for you. Very similar to the magazine Mental Floss but more political. Highly recommended.
