From weird science to pop culture, bodily functions to animal behavior, stuff to wonder aloud on a long car trip to what we never even bother to think about, let this hilarious, irreverent kid's-eye view of life teach you Everything You Need to Know About the World.

Do you know that tennis was invented by monks? What is the most dangerous crocodile on earth? How do you say “fart” in Romanian? What does the word “pet” mean in French? (Hint: it smells like a rotten egg.) How many monarch butterflies fly from Canada to Mexico every year? What really happens to our bodies during puberty? How did the Foo Fighters get their name?

Welcome to the wacky, wonderful world of Simon Eliot

. . . a place where adults and curious kids alike can learn a few facts about things you never thought you knew, or thought you knew but were wrong, or were always afraid to ask.
