Mental Floss

This site appeals to 'knowledge junkies' in a fun hip way. Lots of trivia and facts on a wide number of subjects. Granted, the info is not meant to be research quality, fully documented and supported, but still it could be a great way to stimulate online discussions, and spark students' interests.
There is a magazine too, (that is available in the LW Nixon Library), great Tshirts ("homonyms are a reel waist of thyme") and quizzes (How many US vice presidents can you list in 8 minutes?)
