Why Do Men Have Nipples? : Things You'd Only Ask a Doctor After Your Third Gin 'n' Tonic Paperback
Hundreds of questions you'd only ask your doctor after your third martini! 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 forever?
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 answer to these and many more questions - pretty much everything you've ever wanted to know - but never had enough Dutch courage to ask!

Review by wyvernfriend
Although the facts are interesting the link pieces are annoying at best and truly disjointed at worst, I suppose it's ment to show the mind-set and how they link from one issue to another but a few more interesting factoids would have been more fun for me.Sans link pieces and with more facts they would have probably scored a 4 or more.

A tongue-in-cheek look at many medical questions people are afraid to openly ask. The chapter openers were rather of unnecessary, yet the IM conversations were fun but could have done without the awkward timestamps.
