Today at Flavorpill, we took a tour of the Trumps’ incredibly gilded penthouse. We discovered that Snooki was wrong when she claimed that whale sperm is what makes the ocean so salty. We knew a few people who could stand to read Total Film’s exhaustive guide to The Hunger Games. We were excited to see Mayim Bialik recreate her Sassy cover photo from 1992. We were amazed by these “neon signs” made out of glowing E. coli. We vicariously ventured into an unguarded strategic military rocket motor factory near Moscow. We were surprised to learn that Ernest Hemingway once shopped at Abercrombie and Fitch. We were impressed by President Obama’s lovely handwriting. We imagined what Twilight would have been like if it had been penned by one of these literary greats. And finally, we decided that it was worth exploring The Daily Beast’s roundup of 31 ways to get smarter in 2012, especially as it involves playing more Words With Friends.
