SNUFF OUT YOUR INNER OPTIMIST AND JUSTIFY YOUR CONSTANT GLOOM WITH THE ULTIMATE QUIZ BOOK FOR THESE DEPLORABLE TIMES.
 
Contains 834 questions, all with dispiriting answers, such as:
1. At what age does the human brain begin to deteriorate?
2. How many press-ups does it take to burn off one Creme Egg?
3. When will the sun finally go out?
 
YOU’LL LAUGH. YOU’LL CRY. YOU’LL FEEL NUMB.
 
Answers:
1. At what age does the human brain start to deteriorate? At 27. A recent study of mental agility in 2,000 healthy people aged between 18 and 60 concluded that the first measurable signs of decline in areas like processing speed and visual puzzle-solving appear in the late twenties. However, the researchers also found that other areas of brain function, such as vocabulary, improved with age. So even if you can’t find the milk aisle in your local supermarket, you will be able to vent your frustration on a passing employee with gratifying eloquence.
2. How many press-ups does it take to burn off one Creme Egg?
A lot. To be more specific, a person weighing 70 kg would need to do around 300 press-ups in 15 minutes to burn off a single egg.
3. When will the sun go out? In 5 billion years. Not a minute too soon.
