You’ve never heard of Yuji Ijiri. But back in 1989 he created something incredible. When people look back hundreds of years from now, only the printing press and the Internet will have it beat for sheer mind-boggling impact on society. So what am I talking about? What did Ijiri create that’s so amazing? Triple-entry accounting.

A homeschooling Christian mother of ten was so angered by an article about anal sex that she was taken to burn the magazine. Kind of ironic, kind of like heathens burning Bibles?
For what it's worth, here is that article. While I agree that it might not be appropriate for teens, it is pretty straightforward.

First, the listing for this song at Songfacts. Some items I knew, some I did not.
Now it gets weird. Some guys started the JennyScan Project circa 2007 where they dial every area code (except 555, of course) and then Jenny's number. Here are the results.

So I learned two things today - Doctors warn against this latest trend of women putting glitter in their hoohahs, and that there's a latest trend of women putting glitter in their hoohahs. TMYK!

A list compiled at BuzzFeed more than a year ago but still very pertinent if you ever have plans to hop the puddle for a visit to our Brit friends. It's a completely different language.

This guy from Portland, Oregon just lost his job at Home Depot for violating company policy, which doesn’t sound like such a big deal until you realize that the reason he broke the rules was because he was stopping a child from getting kidnapped!

Entitled, arrogant, lazy, spoiled, narcissistic. That's all we hear about young cats today. In the good old days, our cats were happy to hunt for mice and live in the barn. Now they expect to be fed organic freeze-dried turkey treats while they spend all day snapchatting, watching themselves on youtube, and doing things we generally consider to be a "waste of time".

The greatest ideas come in the most unusual ways. One day Foodiggity founder Chris Durso's son suggested to recreate the US states with food. Durso didn't think of it as a great idea, until his son said that it would be great to give them punny names like "New Pork" or "New Jerky". This is how The Foodnited States of America project began.

In the summer of 1978, two future directing legends, Bill Murray, and a group of teenagers went into the Canadian woods. They came back with one of the most groundbreaking movie comedies of their generation.

The most anticipated eclipse in American history is coming this summer. At the heart of it is Hopkinsville, Kentucky, which anticipates 100,000 visitors. Mental Floss takes a look behind the small town's preparations - and a deep dive into the passionate subculture of people who chase eclipses for a living.
Twenty-five years later, the Penny Marshall classic - starring Geena Davis, Lori Petty, Rosie O'Donnell, and Madonna herself - is still a high-water mark for baseball movies, and movies in general. Here's why it still matters.
