Imponderables
The Solution to the Mysteries
of Everyday Life

Did you ever wonder why you never see baby pigeons? Or why a thumbs-up gesture means "OK"? At last the solutions to some of life's most baffling questions are gathered here in one volume. Written in an informative and entertaining style and illustrated with drawings that are clearly to the point, "Imponderables" gets to the bottom of everyday life's mysteries, among them:

  • Why is a mile 5,280 feet?
  • Which fruits are in Juicy Fruit' gum?
  • Why does an X stand for a kiss?
  • Why don't cats like to swim?
  • Why do other people hear our voices differently than we do?

    Dictionaries, encyclopedias, and almanacs don't have the answers --"Imponderables" does! And in answering such questions, it touches on an astonishing variety of subjects, including sports, science, history, politics, television, radio, and much more. No trivial pursuit, "Imponderables "takes a surprising, illuminating, and humorous look at ourselves and the world around us.
