Mental Floss has the coolest articles

Mental Floss recently published this fascinating list – The Quick 10: Bedroom Quirks of 10 Great Authors

I think my favorite is, of course, this one:

1. William Shakespeare liked to swoop in on his friends’ women. He overheard his friend Richard Burbage making plans with a lady one night. Richard was going to show up for the secret rendezvous and call himself “Richard III” at the door so he would be admitted to her room. Shakespeare hightailed it to her house and gave the password. True to witty form, when Richard showed up, Shakespeare sent word down that William the Conquerer came before Richard III.

How funny is that? Anyway, the whole list is pretty interesting, check it out!
