Knowledge makes the world go around. Often we just believe those that are smarter than us, because well, they are smarter. But often they are not correct. Television can also be a bad source of science information. For example that trip The Simpsons took to Australia in season 16, where Bart marvels at the fact that water drains counter clockwise down under, opposite to clockwise draining in the USA. Unfortunately this is not true. Or how about the old wives tale that one of the best things you can do for a jellyfish sting is to urinate on it … this is untrue as well. In 60 seconds you can learn a lot about how the world works thanks to these two short 60 second science books.
This book is one of two available in the series. This book explores science mysteries like why does cling film cling, why are yawns contagious and why does cream whip.
