Time, Chance and Organizations: Natural Selection in a Perilous Environment, 2nd Edition by Herbert Kaufman

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex, But Never Knew to AskDid you know that in Middle-Eastern Islamic countries it is not only a sin but also a crime to eat a lamb that youve had sex with? Or that the worldvanillacomes from a Latin word meaning vagina because of the vanilla pods resemblance to the female genitalia? Or that Grand Tetons literally means big tits?Youve probably never even thought about such things. But here they are, in this unusual compilation of strange facts about the facts of life that will make you laugh out loud while your hair stands on end. Highlights include:* Just the Factoids, Man -- For instance, the number of human ova necessary to repopulate the world could fit into a chicken egg.* When Sex Goes Horribly Awry -- Dont be caught with your pants down. Learn once and for all the words you didnt find on your SATs, such as acrotomophilia, oculolinctus, and taphephilia.* Animal Lust -- There is more to sex in the animal kingdom than doing it doggie style. Did you know that a barnacles penis is 150 percent of its body length?* They Said What?! -- They said plenty: I knew her before she was a virgin. (Oscar Levant on Doris Day)* Sex Styles of the Rich and Famous -- Forget Bill and Monica. Adolf Hitler was a coprophiliac.* Sex in History -- Catherine the Great did not die under a horse, but she did love to have her feet tickled and her bottom slapped.* Around the World -- Its good to know, for the next time youre invited to the dinner party of a North-African Siwa man, that he believes you will find him irresistible if he laces your food with his semen.* Crimes of Passion -- Did you know that in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, it is illegal to have sex with a truck driver in a tollbooth?Wonderfully outrageous and absolutely deadpan, this book is, unbelievably, all true.
