What type are you? And by type I mean typeface. Any other Pistilli Roman's out there? (Thanks Pat!)

From Merinda, more crazy people with zero sense of humor (but irrational indignation to spare)to be found on Yahoo!Answers. And again I question, why do they flock to that forum? Have any of you Flossers asked a question there and gotten a good response?
*
Missed this year's SuperBowl ads? Find them all in one place. I missed the entire second half of the Super Bowl (don't ask), who can help me with that, huh??

From Flossy Faithful Sarah, "a medical reason to keep mental_floss book marked!"

14 unusual and creative slippers. I would love the grass ones (I am fond of going barefoot, sue me!) and the floor mops.

Sure, most everyone is familiar with Aphrodite and Cupid as your go-to gods for love, but what about P'an Chin-lien, the ancient Chinese goddess of hookers? Or Ix Chel, a Mayan goddess of baby-making who occasionally cannibalizes people? Here are 8 of the Most Off-Putting Gods of Love.

Forget your tradition V-Day Lust Lists and try on some of these 10 sexiest geek programmers on for size (the little faux-erotica blurbs are pretty funny, especially juxtaposed with the images, bless them).

From Jamie, I just had to include her story in this, because I think it's something some of us from the outer regions in our states can relate to!
"The first year I started university we were told there was a map of our province (province=state for the Americans) on the wall and we were going to put pushpins on our hometowns to show where everyone was from. The southern part of Ontario, where I was going to school, often forgets that the northern part, where my hometown is, even exists. They had to print 2 additional maps, one of Thunder Bay (northern Ontario) where I was from and one for the girl from Korea, just so we had somewhere to put our pins. Here's a music video some people from my home town recently made" so they wouldn't be forgotten! It's good and very catchy.
