Mental Floss

Mental_floss is an intelligent read, but not too intelligent. We're the sort of intelligent that you hang out with for a while, enjoy our company, laugh a little, smile a lot and then we part ways. Great times. And you only realize how much you learned from us after a little while. Like a couple days later when you're impressing your friends with all these intriguing facts and things you picked up from us, and they ask you how you know so much, and you think back on that great afternoon you spent with us and you smile.

And then you lie and say you read a lot.

Each issue of Mental Floss magazine is divided up into the following sections:

   * Features: Some examples of featured articles include an expose on Shel Silverstein's darker side and a collection of the 25 Most Important Questions in the Universe.
