Perhaps you know that a large wine bottle that holds the equivalent of two regular bottles is called a "magnum"… but are you familiar with the "Nebuchadnezzar"? It's a giant bottle, prized for its rarity and ability to age wine more slowly, that holds twenty bottles' worth! Did you know a flourish at the end of a signature is called a "paraph"? Or that tug-o-war was an Olympic sport up until 1920? With more than 1,500 delightfully random and extremely interesting facts, this book is the perfect gift for the know-it-all you know and love.
