What is the strangest/weirdest thing you've ever researched?
Writing YA is not for the faint of heart, even chick lit contemporary YA. For my college-set book (where three friends challenge each other to a freshman year to-do list), I wanted to have a water balloon fight (one of the items on the list). Only, with no balloons at hand, Liz and her friends decide to use condoms (they knew about a large stash because of another item: Run five pairs of underwear up a flagpole).
So...you guessed it...I had to make sure they would burst...and given enough water and cheap enough condoms...they do!
What about you? Ever research anything strange in the name of fiction?
