If you get a chance to, check out this month's Mental Floss on the bookstands.
It features fun articles like "I Am Woman, Hear Me Arrr," about Cheng I Sao, the famous pirate queen of China and the Red Flag Fleet. (Although Tripmaster Monkey has a pretty nifty article on her as well.)
This month's Mental Floss also features a series of articles on North Korea, including the story of popular film-maker Shin Sang Ok, who was kidnapped by North Korea in a crazy scheme to make movies for Kim Jong Il.
