I Call Bulls**t.

I Call Bulls**t by Jamie Frater

About The Book:
Astounding, myth-shattering evidence that disproves hundreds of commonly - but wrongly - held beliefs. Dissecting the myths, misconceptions, and all-out lies that almost everyone believes as “fact,” I Call Bullshit shocks and amazes readers with just how much trivia they have wrong. Author Jamie Frater puts together a riveting collection of myth-busting revelations. It includes fascinating body facts, like that the “ocean” sound you hear in a seashell is actually the sound of your own blood, and historical facts like that pirates never made prisoners walk the plank. Another section turns general knowledge on its head with doozies such as: the fax machine was invented before the telephone, and U.S. ship captains can’t perform marriage ceremonies at sea.

My Thoughts:
It's funny to learn about something that you were so sure was the truth, and then find out that it is not the truth. Though a lot of the things in the book I already knew were myths, so that was nothing new. But a good amount of them, I thought for sure were true. But then if I sat back and thought about, it makes sense why it isn't true. You learn something new everyday!
