As I mentioned earlier tonight, we're having a bit of trouble with the comments section. I think we've identified the problem, but I can't say for sure until new comments start pouring in. The solution, obviously, is an impromptu Dire Straits trivia contest.*
Leave us a comment with a fun fact about the band. We'll award mental_floss t-shirts to the two facts deemed "best"—provided they're not sucked into the ether.
(Comments are held for moderation, so if yours doesn't appear immediately, that doesn't mean it didn't go through.)
* Why Dire Straits? Wait, what do you have against Dire Straits?
