Random Mental Floss Facts  
I got stuck on a conference call today and kept hitting the Mental Floss fact generator. The notable ones are below (with commentary in parentheses):

Under federal law, garment tags that contain the use-and-care instructions must last the lifetime of the garment. (Many of my clothes would beg to differ)

It is bad luck to whistle in a theatre. The superstition dates back to the time when off-duty sailors would run the fly system in theatres, and the sailors would whistle the cues to each other. Therefore, if you were to walk through a theatre carelessly whistling a tune, you might cause a scenic piece to fall on your head. (Interesting!)

On the 2001 New Zealand census, 53,715 people listed their religion as “Jedi.” (Ha - I would totally list this)

Jim Cummings, the voice of Winnie the Pooh, calls sick kids in hospitals and chats with them in character. (awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, too sweet)

Whiskey is clear when it is first distilled. It gets it's color and much of it's taste from the oak barrels in which it is aged. (wonder if it's more like vodka right when it's distilled, hmmmm)

Thinky Thought  
Thinky Thought I'm pondering at work today: Did Ryan Murphy name Matt's New Normal character Monty after Montgomery Clift? I thought it was a strange name, but I'm very particular about names.
