Curious Josh: Spell It Out


I used to write a series of posts that allowed me to explore all of the weird things I'm curious about. Want to read some of them? Go here.

One of the twitter feeds that I follow is from the magazine, Mental Floss. And their twitter is full of tons of glorious trivia facts. (You can follow them at @mental_floss.)

For the past week or so, they've been tweeting (and instagramming) the meaning behind popular abbreviations, initials, or acronyms.

The one that caught my eye was that ZIP code stands for Zone Improvement Plan.

Want more? Check out all 31 of them compiled here. And BTW (see what I did there?), this would make an excellent up front game for your large group gathering!
