YMMV / Bill Bryson

  • Fridge Logic: One of his Notes From a Big Country was partly devoted to examining all the gaping plot holes in The Lost World: Jurassic Park.
  • Newer Than They Think: Australia's Trans-Continental Railway
    • As well as the reach of Australian utilities, geographical knowledge of the place, pretty much the whole country (only independent since 1901).
  • Nightmare Fuel: Many descriptions of Australian wildlife and the travails of outback explorers (though it's all Truth in Television...). Also the descriptions of potential megadisasters in Short History.
