The Information. Recommend Documents. Your name.
Let me go to the fridge and try that in the sink. The origin of the word "news" comes from newspapers stories taking stories from everywhere, North, East, West and South…and using the first letter of each direction to derive "news"? It's a totally false and bogus etymology.
It was derived from the Middle English "newes", and parallels the German "neues" and the French "nouvelle". This is probably the silliest thing I found in this book. There is no such thing as a blue food, and even blueberries are purple?
Arguably there is blue corn. True or not he stole that line from comedian George Carlin.
There are true facts in the book and facts can be either true or false , but without taking the time a person can't know what is fact and what is bogus. I think it's safe to say that a significant percentage of the facts presented are bogus.
I get the impression the author just cruised the net for whatever he could find that was interesting and stuck into this book. He didn't check for accuracy at all.
The problem I have with books like this is that people often cite such stuff…no matter how silly.
I read books like this because I want to be entertained and illumined with truth…not B. I almost hate to put it on my non-fiction shelf.
It can't be trusted. The only reason I finished it was I wanted to blast it apart. However, I was disappointed because the facts are poorly researched. I thought this book would inspire many unique essay topics for my college classes, but upon some simple research I found that most "facts" I wanted to find more information on turned out to be false.
