    Noel Botham is chairman and founding member of the Useless Information Society. Botham and the rest of his team lurk mostly around London.

    Bigger, better, and more useless than ever!

    In their groundbreakingly useless book, The Book of Useless Information, the members of the Useless Information Society proved that knowledge doesn't have to be useful to be entertaining. Now they present a new collection of their most fascinating, hilarious, and wholly trivial findings. The Ultimate Book of Useless Information includes such "did you knows" as:

    - Peanuts are one of the ingredients in dynamite
    - The average person spends two weeks of their life kissing
    - And giraffes have no vocal cords

    • Better than Expected

      This Lap Top Bag is everything I wanted and more. Plenty of room for my large lap top, and lots of compartments. It seems they thought of everything with this bag. Please note it is not red, but a lovely dark raspberry color.

    • The Ultimate Book of Useless Information

      What more can one say about this? The title says it all. It's well organized. It gives background about many different things in this world. Possibly even makes a good reference for Trivial Pursuit or other Trivia games.
