Stupid – I didn’t realize it was a game show.
I like trivia so I thought I’d love this book so much that I bought two books in one shot “Why Do Clocks Run Clockwise” and “When Do Fish Sleep”. I HATED the delivery. That’s 10 bucks burnt away.
A fact is presented, and then 3 people propose a possible answer. (3 actors named A, B and C). The listener has 10 seconds to decide which answer is the correct one.
Didn’t like this set-up, I wanted a fun litany of interesting facts - not a game show!!!
Plus (especially in “When Do Fish Sleep”) in a lame and unsuccessful attempt at humour, A B and C would bicker and quarrel and dispute the over answers. This was an incredibly annoying and unnecessary waste of time.
