BREAKING NEWS: Be sure to check newsstands shortly for the latest issue of mental_floss magazine — I have a new piece in this issue (the annual 10 issue), “10 Recent Sightings of Einstein” (or something to that effect). It’s a collaboration between myself and Wade Kwon — amazingly, the first collaborative effort between us (that I can think of, at least) in over 25 years.
George Bush: He’s not retarded.
