A gleefully gruesome look at the actual science behind the most outlandish, cartoonish, and impossible deaths you can imagine What would happen if you took a swim outside a deep-sea submarine wearing only a swimsuit? How long could you last if you stood on the surface of the sun? How far could you actually get in digging a hole to China? Paul Doherty, senior staff scientist at San Francisco's famed Exploratorium Museum, and writer Cody Cassidy explore the real science behind these and other fantastical scenarios, offering insights into physics, astronomy, anatomy, and more along the way. Is slipping on a banana peel really as hazardous to your health as the cartoons imply? Answer: Yes. Banana peels ooze a gel that turns out to be extremely slippery. Your foot and body weight provide the pressure. The gel provides the humor (and resulting head trauma). Can you die by shaking someone's hand? Answer: Yes. That's because, due to atomic repulsion, you've never actually touched another person's hand. If you could, the results would be as disastrous as a medium-sized hydrogen bomb. If you were Cookie Monster, just how many cookies could you actually eat in one sitting? Answer: Most stomachs can hold up to sixty cookies, or around four liters. If you eat or drink more than that, you're approaching the point at which the cookies would break through the lesser curvature of your stomach, and then you'd better call an ambulance to Sesame Street.

5 Killer Mysteries by Today’s Bestselling Authors! You don’t have to be a sleuth to figure out why readers love these 5 amazing mysteries and the series they launched. A Killer Collection by New York Times bestselling author Ellery Adams In the world of antiques and collectibles, it helps to have a sharp eye for quality, a good ear for gossip, and a nose for murder. Molly Appleby is a young writer for Collector’s Weekly, and when the reporter isn’t covering the best the South has to offer in auctions and antique shows, she’s trying to get her new relationship with a coworker off the ground. When her latest assignment takes her to North Carolina pottery country to cover an exclusive kiln opening, the last thing Molly expects to find is a dead body. As she digs beneath the genteel surface of antiques and collectibles, she finds a world filled with backstabbing and competition, and what started as a story about rare collections might leave Molly with nothing more than a collection of corpses. The first book in the newly revised and updated Antiques & Collectibles Mystery series, originally published under J. B. Stanley. “A very likable amateur sleuth . . . I’ll be happy to follow Molly on her future investigations.” —The Romance Readers Connection Relatively Dead by New York Times and USA Today bestseller Sheila Connolly Abby Kimball has just moved to New England with her boyfriend and is trying to settle in, but the experience is proving to be quite unsettling, to say the least. While on a tour of local historic homes, Abby witnesses a family scene that leaves her gasping for breath—because the family has been dead for nearly a century. Abby would doubt her sanity if it weren’t for Ned Newhall, the kind and knowledgeable guide on that disturbing house tour. As Abby begins to piece together clues that are as moving as they are shocking and unravels a long-ago mystery, she also begins to suspect that Ned’s got secrets of his own, and that his interest may be driven as much by a taste for romance as a love for history. The first book in the Relatively Dead Mystery series. “This book kept me hooked until the very end and even then, I wanted more of it.” —Goodreads Confession Is Murder by Peg Cochran For middle-aged “Jersey girl” Lucille Mazzarella, only two things in life really count—her family and her friends.
