We're big fans of New Zealander Justin Brown around the office. The spunky author once lost a rugby bet. The wager? He had to fly to England, and sing and play his guitar door-to-door busking for money until he had enough to travel home (He wrote about the adventure in his book UK on a G-String.)
In any case, you can help us maintain our streak! For all the fans who've helped keep us in the black (unlike some of the unluckier magazines), we're pairing this post with a discount. If you're looking for t-shirts, books, back issues, or hilarious gifts, it's all 10% off at the mental_floss store when you use the discount code "superfluous".
