Why Didn't I Think of That? proves not all successful inventions are the greatest thing since sliced bread (not even sliced bread, which is literally just a precut loaf for lazy loafs).

  • Yo-yos: Deadly weapons do make great kids' toys.Soccer: Boredom is the stepmother of invention.Bottled water: There is no such thing as a stupid idea.Complete with useful trivia--like the fact that 100 trillion paperclips have been sold--readers will be able to impress their friends by hardly trying.
