What’s On at Flavorpill: The Links That Made the Rounds in Our Office


Today at Flavorpill, we watched astronauts fall on the moon. We learned the scientific reason why most leftovers don’t taste as good. We met a hippo named Humphrey who mauled his keeper to death, as well as some other much friendlier exotic animals. We looked at some of LIFE magazine’s self-proclaimed “worst” covers. We wondered what this impressive looking Game of Thrones cake actually tastes like — ditto this Ryan Gosling pancake. We thought this tilt-shift video of Belgium was totally adorable. We wanted to give Jason Segel a hug after a 7-year-old critic declared that his face was the worst part of The Muppets. We were impressed by a portrait of Charles Darwin that’s made up from hundreds of stenciled barrel monkeys. We found this analysis of the name-to-title ratios of various authors fascinating. We were frightened by a few of these extreme cigarette holders from the ’50s. And finally, we were thrilled to be a part of Mental Floss’ roundup of the all-time most popular posts from 21 wonderful websites.
