It feels good to be back, Flossers! I did enjoy my trip though - in fact, I found you a little ride along video. Even though I left from the East Coast, this time lapse video (created by some patient person with a lot of batteries) gives you the full transcontinental plus transatlantic experience: from San Francisco to Paris in 2 minutes.

From the Annals of Too Much Time: things to do with paper clips when you're bored (although some of these are pretty spectacular - the tiny sword?? Awesome).

Forget the Robot Revolution, is anybody watching the plants?? From alien life in the Andes (I really can't get over these things) to 10 creepy plants that shouldn't exist (thanks to my friend Matt for the second link).

Warning from the start - there is a picture from the movie The Exorcist to open up this post about 15 Scary Movies We Were Much Too Young To See, so bear that in mind. Now, Flossers, in honor of yesterday being Friday the 13th, what movie were you too young to see? (I think I'm still too young to see some of these).

From my friend Andy, a link for a Harvard entrance exam from the 1800s … could you get in? (I would fail then and now … miserably).

Have you always wanted to be a Ghost of Christmas Past? Turns out you can spook yourself any day of the upcoming year (or beyond that, assuming you keep the same email address) by writing a letter to your future self. We did this in high school and somehow it got sent to my parents 5 years later ... awkward.

If you have in-flight WiFi, you can now have the best of both worlds (and by that I mean Aisle and Window). You can use Mondo Window to get a more complete view of where your plane is currently located and where it's headed (by the way, is anyone else obsessed with the in-flight map they have now on some planes? I watch it practically the whole way. I need context!).
