Hroši žerou trpaslíky!


Hoaxy, fake news, klamavá reklama a spousta dalšího balastu, to vše na nás útočí na sociálních sítích, internetu, v e-mailech, ale taktéž i ze stránek seriózně se tvářících médií. Žijeme ve světě, který je každým dnem falešnější, a to čím dál bizarnějším způsobem. Tato kniha je zábavnou, ale i poučnou historií městských legend, fíglů, švindlů, politického mlžení a dalších žvástů, které zaplňují moderní svět. Nejde však jen o sbírku fake news, nabízí i praktické rady, jak toto "smetí" odhalit a ignorovat.

Electrified Sheep


Benjamin Franklin was a pioneering scientist, leader of the Enlightenment and founding father of the USA. But perhaps less well known is that he was also the first person to use artificial respiration to revive an electric shock victim. Odder still, it was actually mouth-to-beak resuscitation on a hen that he himself had shocked. Welcome to some of the most weird and wonderful experiments ever conducted in the name of science. Packed full of eccentric characters, irrational obsessions and extreme experiments, Electrified Sheep is the long-awaited follow-up to the bestselling Elephants on Acid. Watch as scientists attempt to blow up the moon, wince at the doctor who performs a self-appendectomy - and catch the faint whiff of singed wool from an electrified sheep.
