The Bathroom Readers' Institute is a tight-knit group of loyal and skilled writers, researchers, and editors who have been working as a team for years. The BRI understands the habits of a very special market--Throne Sitters--and devotes itself to providing amazing facts and conversation pieces.
Everybody loves a great quiz--especially a challenging one with intriguing questions and answers that don't come easy. The trivia experts at the Bathroom Readers' Institute have devised a unique way of presenting some of the most obscure--and most fun--information they've ever come across: hundreds of questions divided into seven golden challenge categories-sports, history, music, science, language, movies, and pop culture. Impossible Questions aren't really impossible-they're tough, but fun. Don't believe it? Try this:
Q. It's 55 feet long, 55 feet wide, and 555 feet tall. What is it?
A: The Washington Monument. Ever since it was built in 1829, people have been trying to figure out the significance of those numbers, assuming there's some sort of numerological significance. The designer, Robert Mills (he also designed the Department of the Treasury building) revealed that he picked those numbers based on his desire to make the monument an impressive height while using the 10-to-1 proportions of classic Egyptian obelisks.
