Welcome to the New Mental Floss!
Now wait a minute. Something's different around here.
We're very excited to unveil the new mentalfloss.com! Poke around. We think you're going to like it. Stories have more room to breathe. Pages have less clutter. If you know what you're looking for, you'll have an easier time finding it. If you're here to get lost down a rabbit hole, we can keep you busy for hours. (Also, we love you. Come back often.)
We're still on a mission to write a list of facts about every proper noun, from famous movies to lesser-known presidents, fast-casual restaurant chains to celebrity-endorsed NES games. We'll eventually hit every book you'll read in school, every painting in art history, and every hot dog-shaped automobile you might encounter on the highway.
And we're turning our best writers and editors loose on some fascinating untold stories you'll want to share with your friends. Like, in real life. Verbally. Not just on Facebook. But please tell your Facebook friends as well.
As with any new construction, there are still a few kinks we need to work out. There's a creaky floorboard, a door that needs painting, and no easy way to navigate all 274 installments of our World War I: 100 Years Later series. We're getting there. In the meantime, if there's something you can't find, shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or tweet @EnglishJason. Before you know it, this will feel like home for you, too.
And finally, let's give a big round of applause to the very exhausted people who made this all happen, especially John, Mahala, Marty, Maja, Van, Lucy, Emem, Skye, Lauren, and Garrett. You can (almost) sleep now.
