In the Beginning

DESCRIPTION

mental_floss promotion

From Big Hair to the Big Bang, mental_floss presents a Mouthwatering Guide to the Origins of Everything. Sure, you know all about the birds and the bees. But did Dad ever tell you that it wasn't a stork that put that shiny can opener in your kitchen drawer? Or that paper clips started out as proud, Nazi-fighting warriors? And did he tell you how cruise control was originally conceived by a blind genius?

From mullets to Silly Putty, lie detectors to karaoke, we've got the true stories behind everything you didn't think had stories. Because if you're looking for answers, In the Beginning is the place to start.

Paperback. 272 pages.
