This is weather beyond your wildest imagination—yet it’s all true: showers of worms from the sky, watermelon snow, gory storms, and other freakish and fun phenomena! These stories are anything but ordinary, and they will leave you stunned, horrified, amazed, and sometimes even amused at the incredible things nature can do. Gathered from historic records, present-day news reports and research studies, and spanning the globe from the Sahara to the tundra to the USA, they reveal just how volatile and bizarre weather can be. Find out about supersized hailstones as big as bowling balls; fish raining from the sky; the never-ending lightning that has become a UNESCO National Heritage Site; and fog so thick it killed hundreds of people in a single day. And if that isn’t strange enough for you, there are terrible typhoons and tsunamis, tornadoes that have carried people into the air, temperatures that soared over 49 degrees in two minutes, and even cyclones that have raised ships buried for over a century. Scientists can explain how and why some of these things happen—but other events remain a mystery. From the Trade Paperback edition.

The law can be scary, the law can be lenient or cruel...and, at times, the law can just be downright, unbelievably wacky. Be assured: every statute in this entertaining and illustrated compendium is absolutely real. They come from down the block and around the world, and they prevent us from no-nos like eating pies baked by grandmothers in non-certified kitchens; accidentally getting a glimpse of a sweaty naked person through a window; and being subjected postmortem to the tacky taste of any loved one who would dare put plastic flowers on our graves instead of fresh ones. The jaw-dropping regulations cover animals (no licking hallucinogenic toads in Missouri); transportation (do not run out of gas on Germany's super-speedy autobahns); public decorum (kissing and hugging in public forbidden in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia--but in India, it will just get you fined); house rules (no flushing after 10PM in a certain Swiss apartment building), food (only certain pizzas in Italy can be called Margheritas); and much, much more. And the best place to get a job? Portugal--because you can't be fired. One thing that's absolutely allowed: laughing hard and long at these laws!

Helaman through Moroni. This volume is the third of three on the Book of Mormon. It covers the Book of Helaman through through the Book of Moroni. This includes the period of great wickedness just prior to the coming of Christ. We read of the missions of Nephi and Lehi, followed by Samuel the Lamanite. The signs of Christ's birth and death are given, followed by their fulfillment. Great destruction occurs on the American continent, and only the righteous survive in the Land of Bountiful. Christ appears to the Nephites, teaches and heals them, organizes His Church and ordains 12 disciples to lead them. After His departure, a Zion people live in peace for many years, then decline again into great wickedness. We read of the final days of the Nephites in the writings of Mormon and Moroni. We also read about the Jaredites, who were the first to inherit the land, long before Lehi's family arrived. In all, it covers 2,000 years of Jaredite history, and 469 years of Nephite history from 52 BC to 421 AD when the book of Moroni closes. The cover features a beautiful painting titled "Behold Your Little Ones," by Del Parson.
