You know how it is . . . you’re at a party, you’ve had a drink or two and then someone introduces you to a friend. He’s a doctor. And it seems like the perfect time to ask all those strange questions you’ve always wondered about, but never had the courage to ask:

Can poppy seeds make you test positive for heroin?
What are goosebumps?
Why does asparagus make your wee smell?
Why do old people get hairy ears?
Is it possible to lose your contact lenses inside your head for ever?
Why do some people have an ‘outie’ belly button and some people an ‘innie’?
Does warm milk really help you sleep?
Is it actually possible to get scared to death?

This book gives the answers to these and many more questions – pretty much everything you’ve ever wanted to know – but never had enough Dutch courage to ask!
