Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday

The rules come from MizB of Should Be Reading.

Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week's teaser comes from: Does Anything Eat Wasps by NewScientist

(pg 108) "We found that a 750-milliliter wine bottle emptied in 9.9 seconds if inverted, but in 8.1 seconds if held at 45 degrees. Swirling the bottle so that a little tornado forms in its neck, allowing air to enter continuously and replace the liquid, brings pouring time down to just 7.7 seconds."

I'm being geeky and pulling from a science related trivia type book which is a compilation of question and answers from the column "The Last Word" in New Scientist.
