I'm going to start posting random facts I read in the book:

FACT: Bono, who's musically untalented at best, wrote the structure of Love Is Blindness on the piano (says Edge, not Bono).

FACT: Edge said to Bob Dylan, "People are going to be playing your songs for thousands of years." Bob Dylan replied, "Man, they're going to be listening to your songs too. It's just no one's going to know how to play them."

Remember kids, it's (normally) the Koreans and the hillbilly Chinese folk who eat dogs, not the normal ones!

Wikipedia says:

The dish involves chicken (usually thigh) pieces that are boned, battered, and deep-fried, then dressed with a translucent, reddish-brown, semi-thick, sauce made from corn starch, vinegar or wine, chicken broth, and sugar. The dish is typically topped with toasted sesame seeds, hence the name.

1. BULLSHIT.

2. Thanks, Bob, for giving blind obsessives material to use for the next DECADE.

It also says:

(also called Chinese sesame seed chicken) is a Chinese American dish commonly found in Chinese take-out and buffet restaurants in the United States.

Which explains a lot, really. That dish also looks like it's essentially made of oil and sugar. Kinda like lemon chicken.

That sounds less Chinese and more my mother trying to make chicken for dinner interesting when I was 14.

FACT: Bono and Edge say Adam has the biggest penis of the band. Adam denies it. Edge says, "He wouldn't know because he's blind." Bono says, and I quote, "Some people think U2 should be hung. All I am saying is that we are, in fact, particularly well hung."

I remember reading that, and not really understanding what he was on about, except he was somehow referring to genitalia.

But... but... that'd be like eating a horse! I mean, you ride both of them animals around, give them names, feed them from your hand, right?

FACT: Bono claims to have invented to square squared.

[In reference to Achtung Baby's cover] "The success of this is it's 16 different images and they're all great sleeve ideas. I came up with the grid system as a solution and it has become associated with our band. I keep seeing it now in commercials and on internet sites. We didn't invent the square squared, but I think we own it for our era."

The burning question is: do you have a cousin called Hi Hung Li?

Yeah, all the Asian jokes are coming out tonight.
