Have you ever been beaten up by a bunch of young hoodlums for wearing a straw hat? Why in the hell are so many manicure shops owned by Vietnamese? Why is that old timey doctor drinking your urine? How in the heck did we let the savior of the world die in a crappy apartment in a suburb of Moscow? Do all of these questions sound random as all get out? Good, because this is a book on the random history. In these pages are the random tidbits left out of the history books for being too scandalous, too risque, and too unbelievably weird. So what are you waiting for? Open it up. Start reading. It's about damn time you started learning something worth knowing.
