Description
Lurking just behind the facade of America that has been fostered by history texts, news media, and stuffy documentaries is a strange and perplexing land that you couldn't imagine even in your wildest dreams. From the 32 bathrooms in the White House—yes, 32—to the fact that a single U.S.-made hamburger may contain meat from more than 100 different cows, or that the "Bureau of Information" in High Point, North Carolina, is an actual chest of drawers standing nearly four stories tall, these thousand-and-one tidbits of weirdness will cast the country you thought you knew in an entirely different light.
