One for the Road: Take me to Your Leader
So what useless world facts will you find in this quirky guide? You'll learn which drink is the traditional "hooch" in countries like Sri Lanka (Kasippu) and Macedonia (Rakia), and how to say "Cheers" and "I love you" in Arabic, Swahili and Esperanto (and a bunch of other languages). There are also handy drawings of every airplane ever designed, a list of the Seven Wonders of the World (as chosen by the American Society of Civil Engineers) and that all important two-page spread of famous world sausages. (I was surprised to learn that I've already sampled six in my lifetime.)
The list of random yet (arguably) useful facts continues...keep your eye out for the yellow cover and see if you get sucked into the void.
