Recently I have become addicted to MentalFloss.com. Mental Floss satisfies my need for strange and somewhat useless knowledge. I hope to put it to use while answering "Jeopardy" questions in a room full of people someday, or maybe just to impress friends at dinner parties.
I thought I had hit the Mental Floss jackpot the other day when I saw the article about the weirdest White House pets, but turns out I was wrong. Today I happened across a little article titled "The Men Behind Your Favorite Liquors".
I can not tell you how much it pleases me to discover that not only was Captain Morgan was a real person, but he was eventually knighted.
Enjoy the entire article here: http://www.mentalfloss.com/blogs/archives/20098

Happy New Year!
