Prostitution in the animal kingdom
"Freakonomics" is a fascinating book on everything from the relation between crime stats and abortion, to the realization that your real estate agent may not be good for your wallet.
The author is planning a sequel. One of the items that will be covered is capuchin monkeys' use of money, and prostitution!
Are we aware that books exist because a German jeweler Johannes Gutenberg got the date wrong one day in the fifteenth century? That Renaissance water gardens made the carburetor possible? Any idea why spicy food lead to zoos, locomotives and air conditioning? Or what Ming vases, Brazilian sugar, roman forgeries and Frankestein have in common with socialism and geology?
