The Best of Mental Floss [Sundays Are For Procrastinating]

In case you haven’t heard of John Green, he’s the author of great YA fiction novels like The Fault in Our Stars and Looking For Alaska.  He’s also quite the YouTube star. He posts tons of videos on random subjects that are fun and educational (that’s my nerdy side coming out). In his most recent series, Mental Floss, he makes short videos on interesting facts. If nothing else, half this stuff could be useful in bar trivia someday!
