Conversation Sparks started a tumblr out of an itch to draw again, and to share some of the interesting tidbits I came across online. Now that little tumblr has all grown up to become Conversation Sparks, the antidote to boring parties and awkward pauses.

Here are just a few gems you’ll find in its pages:

Cat urine glows under a blacklight.

Women have shorter tongues than men.

Every day, 16% of searches are ones Google has never seen before.

Jimmy Carter was the first U.S. president born in a hospital.

Parts of the book have been featured in Buzzfeed and The Huffington Post. I also spoke with Ron Charles at The Washington Post about being awkward.

If you’re so inclined, please order it through your local independent bookstore. (Mine are Greenlight Bookstore & WORD Brooklyn.)
