How fat do you have to be to become bulletproof? Why do people have eyebrows? Why do pineapples have spines? How much does a head weigh? What affects the color of earwax? How quickly could I turn into a fossil? Have you ever thought up a question so completely off-the-wall, so seemingly ridiculous, that you couldn't even find the courage to ask it? Maybe at the sports bar you were transported by the beauty of your beer to wonder, "How long could I live on beer alone?" Or, cycling through the park, you mused, "Did nature invent any wheels?" Or looking up at the night sky, you had a moment of angst, "What would happen if the moon suddenly disappeared -- if it were vaporized or stolen by aliens?" Full of fun factlets, Does Anything Eat Wasps? is a runaway bestseller around the world. It celebrates the weird and wacky questions -- some trivial, some baffling, all unique -- and their multiple answers culled from "The Last Word," a long-running column in the internationally popular science magazine, New Scientist. Tackling the imponderables of everyday life, sparkling with humor, and bursting with delightful erudition, Does Anything Eat Wasps? is irresistibly entertaining and utterly engrossing. So, go on. Put away your lab coat and your pencil -- science is fun again.… (mer)

Un libro que recopila preguntas de lectores que son respondidas por otros lectores (Seguro que les suena de algo ). Debo reconocer que desconocía la sección “La última palabra” (The last word) de la revista New Scientist , pero me he quedado impresionado. Hay un segundo libro, aún no traducido, que compré en Florencia y que ya estoy terminando.
Y qué les puedo decir, estimados lectores. He devorado el libro. Me lo compré en el aeropuerto de Barajas cuando salía para Italia y me lo acabé casi casi en el avión. Es adictivo. Es fantástico. Es una gozada ver la colaboración entre los lectores, salpicada con comentarios humorísticos que arrancan muchas sonrisas. Es el foro CPI, si me permiten la comparación CPIcéntrica, con la diferencia de que lleva en marcha desde 1994.
Entre las muchas preguntas que podremos resolver están la que da título al libro: “¿Hay algo que coma avispas?”. El propio preguntante da una hipótesis: “Pájaros estúpidos”, pero la respuesta documentada de los lectores tiene mucha más miga. Hay mil preguntas más, muchas de las cuales han visto ustedes respondidas en blogs como CPI, MedTempus, Ocularis y otros: ¿Por qué los moretones cambian de color con el tiempo? ¿Qué debo hacer si quiero convertirme en fósil? Si tiro una piedra al mar en Menorca, ¿llegaría la ola a EE.UU.? ¿Cuántas especies viven dentro del cuerpo humano? ¿Por qué, si la rueda es tan útil, no hay animales que hayan desarrollado evolutivamente ruedas para desplazarse? Un auténtico montón de preguntas muy interesantes. Una que me encantó: “Dicen que la cerveza contiene un montón de nutrientes y vitaminas. ¿Cuánto tiempo podría una persona resistir alimentándose únicamente de cerveza?” Una de las respuestas: “Lo único que puedo decir es que tengo 39 años y sigo vivo” . Son 100 preguntas en total.
Sólo puedo decirles que adoro este libro. Que me encanta, que me ha dado muchas ideas para escribir cosas interesantes y que estoy seguro, segurísimo de que a cualquiera con interés en la ciencia curiosa pero inútil (a veces) le fascinará.
Mi nota no puede ser otra: Imprescindible. ( )

En masse spørgsmål om ting, man kan undre sig over. Fx hvad første verdenskrig havde at gøre med hestekastanjer og hvor mange grønne kartofler man kan spise før man dør af det. ( )

I've had a couple of these New Scientist compilations but I have to say, this first one is still my favourite. Like the others in the 'series' it is a collection of letters from the magazine's brilliant 'Last Words' page, where questions can be submitted for other readers to answer. These questions - and their answers - can be brilliant, serious, hilarious or pithy by turn.

Have you, for example, ever wondered how frost makes those pretty patterns on your window? Or why you feel more pain two days after exercising than you do the first day? Perhaps you've pondered why dark drinks give you a worse hangover than clear ones, or idly considered how long a head can still be said to be 'alive' after it is chopped off? The answers are all here! A brilliant little book for idling away an hour or two... ( )

AMAZON - How long can I live on beer alone? Why do people have eyebrows? Has nature invented any wheels? Plus 99 other questions answered. Every year, readers send in thousands of questions to New Scientist, the world's best-selling science weekly, in the hope that the answers to them will be given in the 'Last Word' column - regularly voted the most popular section of the magazine. Does Anything Eat Wasps? is a collection of the best that have appeared, including: Why can't we eat green potatoes? Why do airliners suddenly plummet? Does a compass work in space? Why do all the local dogs howl at emergency sirens? How can a tree grow out of a chimney stack? Why do bruises go through a range of colours? Why is the sea blue inside caves? Many seemingly simple questions are actually very complex to answer. And some that seem difficult have a very simple explanation. New Scientist's 'Last Word' celebrates all questions - the trivial, the idiosyncratic, the baffling and the strange. This selection of the best is popular science at its most entertaining and enlightening.

Taking its cue from the popular New Scientist column 'The last word', this book is a collection of the weird and wonderful questions that people have asked of other readers of the magazine. Like the other book 'Why don't penguin's feet freeze', this book takes its title from one of the odder enquiries in the text.Apparently is transpires that actually an awful lot of different things eat wasps, ranging from various creepy crawlies to birds and larger animals.Full of questions that will make you go 'I always wondered that...' and answers that will make you say 'oh, right, now I see!', this book is a little treasure trove of invention and interest!

When, in 1994, New Scientist began publishing The Last Word, the magazine's weekly column of everyday science questions and answers provided by readers, one of the journal's asked how long we expected the column to run.

Introduction.
My mate Paul and I can both hold a tune, but when he sings he sounds like Bryn Terfel, while I'm more like a wounded hippo.
