'Attack Of The Killer Facts': Grossest And Weirdest Facts Ever (PHOTOS)

In an age where the answer to almost any question rests right at our fingertips, it is quite humbling to discover there is still a demand for a bound compendium of strange (and slightly disturbing) information.

While scraping through the dregs of the internet researching my new book, "Attack of the Killer Facts: 1001 Terrifying Truths About Little Green Men, Government Mind-Control, Flesh-Eating Bacteria, and Goat-Sucking Vampires," (Adams Media, a division of F+W Media; May 2011) I learned two concrete things. First, never Google "alien sex experiments" unless you are fully prepared mentally for what you will see. Second, the world is a far weirder place than I could have ever possibly imagined.

Here you will find 17 of the strangest bits of trivia I unearthed from various books, magazines, websites, and general hearsay. Some are shocking, some are disgusting, and a few are both, but all of them offer a unique insight into the delightfully disturbing world of the weird.
