25 Words That Are Their Own Opposites

25 Words That Are Their Own Opposites | Mental Floss:

MOVIE TIME : LILA

In his most recent short film, “Lila”, Carlos brings fantasy and real life together.

The Dark Origins of 11 Classic Nursery Rhymes | Mental Floss:

 In the canon of great horror writing, Stephen King, Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, Bram Stoker, and Mary Shelley tend to dominate the craft. But Mother Goose isn’t too far behind.
