Product Description:

Every year, readers send in thousands of questions to New Scientist, the world’s best-selling science weekly, in the hope that the answers to them will be given in the ‘Last Word’ column - regularly voted the most popular section of the magazine.

Does Anything Eat Wasps? is a collection of the best that have appeared, including: Why can’t we eat green potatoes? Why do airliners suddenly plummet? Does a compass work in space? Why do all the local dogs howl at emergency sirens? How can a tree grow out of a chimney stack? Why do bruises go through a range of colours? Why is the sea blue inside caves? Many seemingly simple questions are actually very complex to answer. And some that seem difficult have a very simple explanation. New Scientist’s ‘Last Word’ celebrates all questions - the trivial, the idiosyncratic, the baffling and the strange. This selection of the best is popular science at its most entertaining and enlightening.

Yep, hornets - here's a picture of one I took a couple of days ago. If you zoom in on the head, you will see a wasp being chomped. Yep that's how big a wasp is, in comparison. 41892258-KmpMT.jpg

Cats also eat them
How long can I live on beer is the question I would really like to know the answer to, as would like to know if I have ever beaten the record
