Did you ever want to be smart?

Fun, educational and sort of quick. This magazine blurs the lines between a great education and great entertainment. Packed full with pages of tidbits, quirky facts and history, a delightfully eclectic new publication who teaches what you should have learned in school - but didn't.
For the record:
mental_floss magazine is an intelligent read, but not too intelligent. They're the sort of intelligent that you hang out with for a while, enjoy our company, laugh a little, smile a lot and then you part ways. Great times. And you only realize how much you learned from them 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 them, and they ask you how you know so much, and you think back on that great afternoon you spent with mental_floss and you smile. Then you lie and say you read a lot.
And here it is now at Bloom Yellow, the July-August issue. If you think you're loosing something on your right or left side of the brain this is the right way to catch it and "feel smart again."
This issue: In the search for Olympic heroes, mental_floss found more than the fastest and the strongest. They also found the craziest, the dirtiest, the meanest, the boldest, the bravest, the saddest, and the funniest. From the swimmer who dog paddled his way to last place to the gymnast who won three gold medals with one leg, they've got all your shocking Olympic stories right there.
Plus: The Quest To Solve The Hardest Math Problem In History. The discovery how Igor Stravinsky introduced the world to music so good that it hurt.
Beijing: Despite the city's 14-inch height limit on dogs, Beijing is living large. Explore its plans to feed the dead, stop the rain, and survive a nuclear holocaust. And much more!

Now we're one of those guys who never stops barking! Do guys bark? Well, now they do! ;-)
