All polar bears are left handed...

How many people actually read something while in the bathroom? Well I usually don't except for this comical trivia book I have that I think I got for Christmas one year. It is packed full of useless trivia and information that is very surprising and humorous. It is The Bathroom Trivia Book, you can find it on The Bathroom Library website.
Ever wonder if rats can vomit? Well they can't, how would someone find that out anyway. I'm guessing taking them to a bar and getting them hammered.

Here are a few facts I thought were worth sharing:
