Mental Floss: Fun Random Facts and News

Mental Floss┬áis a website devoted to interesting, if very random facts. One such fact: Marie Curie’s notebooks are still radioactive. Cool stuff. I chose this website more for its content then its interesting design because that is still a very valid reason to make a website. Its also commonplace. There are many news websites out there, they are the reason newspapers are going out of business. So, while Mental Floss doesn’t have a responsive design it does do a good job giving you the news. The site uses HTML 5 and a lot of Javascript. jquery is common and the site uses some code from open source libraries. There are links everywhere: to other websites and to different parts on the Mental Floss website. While the site is not responsive, it does have a mobile version that is more like a news feed than a site.
