The BBC has compiled a list of Things We Learned in 2010, or as I like to call it, "topical trivia to impress your friends and coworkers with."

From my friend Dekalb, an amazing video from "60 Minutes" about people with autobiographical memory (yes indeed, they can remember every single thing that has ever happened to them!)
*
Consider this short video by National Georgraphic about how there is now an estimated 7 billion people in the world as a follow up to Riggs' piece awhile back about population control. Fascinating! (Thanks Jordon for the link!)
*
And in related news, could babysitting act as an effective birth control? An interesting argument ... as a former nanny, I get it!

Positively beautiful star fish.

I'm hoping the idea that many of the most bizarre (and seemingly commonsense) fine-print labels are because people actually attempted these things or didn't realize that, say, a go-cart might "move when in use" isn't 100% accurate (it induces a "weep for humanity moment"). Check out these 11 crazy fine print warnings for more!

The website Topless Robot (don't even get me started on the name) has created a list of what they consider to be 10 essential nerd foods ("cheap, fast, apathetic.") True or false, Flossers? I can't argue with some of their logic! (er, bit of a light language warning on this one, but you could have guessed that from the blog name, right?) Also of note: some healthy foods can be cheap, too …

Last week I gave a call for your blogs, Flossers, and received submissions from several talented members of our ranks: the first from Zeke, a potpourri of humorous postings called How Awkward For You. The second one is from Chris, who happens to be a candy critic. He also specilizes in candy photos. How cool is that? Have an interesting blog or website to share? Send it my way! If the Flossy shoe fits I'll post it up!

A big thanks to everyone who sent in links this week - keep it up! Submit you finds to FlossyLinks@gmail.com or @FlossyAlli on Twitter. Have a great week!
