1. When horses were still the major source of transportation, there were 100,000 horses in New York City that produced 2.5million pounds of manure a day. In the winter the city built up an interesting mixture of snow and manure that raised the street levels up to five feet. That's why the buildings in the historic district have lifted, second-story stoops.
2. The Chicago River used to flow into Lake Michigan. However, the Chicago River is also where the city used to dump all of its waste. This was a problem because Lake Michigan is where they got their water. So, instead of actually dealing with their sewage problem, the people reversed the course of the Chicago River so it no longer flowed into Lake Michigan, but eventually flowed into the Mississippi River instead. Talk about being caught up s*#t creek without a paddle.
I thoroughly enjoyed EVERYBODY POOPS 410 POUNDS A YEAR. I found it entertaining and educational. It's a great "adult kid's book" (as the blurb on the back says), but I just wish it were a little longer.
This book ended up being really quite informative as well as funny. She ended up giving it to the office/hospital staff where her colonoscopy was done.
I know, too much information. The nurses and staff loved the book!! they're keeping it in their office. It was just the right "medicine" my family member needed.
We learned a lot of things we didn't know and got some good chuckles!
I've only flicked through the book, before I gifted it. It looks to be very interesting. Facts told in a funny, easy to read way. Good gift.
