Mother may know best, but that doesn't mean she's always right. In his new book, Because I Said So!, Jeopardy! champion Ken Jennings looks into those parental edicts: all those years you were told not to sit too close to the television (you'll hurt your eyes!) or swallow your gum (it stays in your stomach for seven years!) or crack your knuckles (arthritis!) are called into question by our country's leading trivia guru. Jennings joined us to separate myth from fact to debunk a wide variety of parental saynigs: no swimming after meals, sit up straight, don't talk to strangers, and so on.
