Because I Said So!: The Truth Behind the Myths, Tales, and Warnings Every Generation Passes Down to Its Kids

Because I Said So! : The Truth Behind the Myths, Tales, and Warnings Every Generation Passes Down to Its Kids - Ken Jennings I admit, I find Ken Jennings amusing. I loved him on Jeopardy, and I really enjoyed his last book, Maphead. This book doesn't do it for me though. After the 10th example I started skimming - too many examples that I already knew the answers to. He does have my eternal gratitude for crediting Cecil Adams and the Straight Dope, but even so it was a bit much.
