The 5 Most Ridiculous Lies Ever Published as Nonfiction. There’s some good stuff on there, but The Mole People: Life in the Tunnels Beneath New York City
is completely absent. This is a pity, since it’s my wife’s favorite “sociology book that turned out to be utter nonsense.” Look here (via here) for a comprehensive smackdown of the physical aspects of her book, which is actually pretty important in a situation like this.
I guess that’s to be expected, though. Cracked’s in the humor business, and even with a title like “The Mole People” there’s only so much that you can do…
PS: No, nothing to do with this. Which is kind of a pity, when you think about it.
