one man's humble quest

talking about mission, AJ Jacobs sets for himself an almost impossible quest to read the encyclopaedia britannica from a to z, hoping to become the smartest person in the world. he finished what he had started. he came to realize his mission may not neccessary make him the smartest but he did learn some inspiring facts like oysters can change their sex, opossums have thirteen nipples, the weird connection between french philosophers and crossed eyes, and most importantly one shall always say yes to adventures or you'll lead a very dull life.
