Read in March, 2009

Hobos and mole-men and nutrient slime, oh my! John Hodgman’s latest fake trivia opus (which doubles as a daily calendar) continues where "The Areas of My Expertise" left off, both in spirit and in page numbers (it begins with page 237). Among the COMPLETE WORLD KNOWLEDGE discussed are: the American electoral process (and the importance of nutrient slime); a summary of all the presidents (including which had hooks for hands); advice on how to be famous; and an examination of mole-man history, myth, and culture.

The only caveat I can give for Hodgman’s genius is that it is best enjoyed in small doses. Read too much too fast, and it all blurs together in a weird mess. Savor it slowly, and you’ll start seeing evidence of mole-men everywhere, and wondering how you could possibly have overlooked the exciting world of hermit-crab racing.
