A few weeks ago, I promised to send 30 readers a free copy of mental_floss magazine. I believe I've shipped mags to everyone who was promised one. If yours hasn't arrived, please let me know. In a recent episode of closet cleaning, I found four more issues. Interested? Be one of the first four people to leave a comment and it's all yours.

Our Facebook Group easily cleared the 1,700 member hurdle this past weekend. Welcome, new Facebook friends!

"¢ Late last year, we held a "Design Your Own MF T-Shirt" contest. Once a week for the next five weeks, we'll be announcing the winners and showing off the new shirts. Get excited.

While most of Mangesh's provocative fan mail is unsuitable for reprinting, we'd like to start running a 'reader mail' segment here on the blog. Got something to say? Have a question? Let us hear it. We'll see what happens.
