Duh!: The Stupid History of the Human Race
Never kiss a rattlesnake. Put on the parachute before jumping from the plane. Don't bring your dog along if you're going to rob a bank. These seem like obvious enough strategies but, unfortunately, we seem to be a race of rattlesnake kissers.
Duh! The Stupid History of the Human Race is a hilarious collection of the stupid things that people do-even the really smart people. "Part 1: The Stupid Chronicles" details the unbelievably idiotic things people have done, organized by such topics as politics, history, sports, arts, science, and dumb plays in the face of fate. "Part 2: Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Stupidity but Were Too Smart to Ask" looks at the track record of human stupidity in all its dumb glory. And "Part 3: How to Destupify" offers tongue-in-cheek advice on how to avoid ending up in a future edition of the book.

One of those books that has, unfortunately, been made obsolete by the Internet. Reading Snopes, the Darwin Awards, and Oddly Enough News is better than the book in that those sites are kept updated. Read full review
This is my favorite book ever. The little passages telling you of stupid things people did keep making me crack up...
And I've read this book at least thirty times already."Never kiss a rattlesnake." Then, on the next page, someone manages to kiss a rattlesnake. Gets me every time!
