If you ever wanted to learn basic Cockney rhyming slang or which president had the shortest term (not to mention how to tie a sari, which honorific to use when greeting a foreign dignitary, or what a stratocumulous cloud looks like), then Schott's Original Miscellany has your answers. It's a perfect addition to the basket you keep next to the bathroom sink. No, don't deny that you have one. Or that it's filled with Reader's Digests from 1982 and copies of US magazine. Recycle that old crap and put this in its place--you will be very glad you did.
