Futility Closet

Strange name, but Futility Closet describes itself as “An idler’s miscellany of compendious amusements.” In other words: trivia — thousands of “epigrams, anecdotes, illusions and wonders; puzzles, prodigies, sublimities and horrors. Read a few and get back to work. We’ll keep finding more.” Run by Greg Ross out of Raleigh, N.C., (from, I would hope, his closet), the site reminds me a lot of the late L.M. (Louis) Boyd’s brilliant newspaper “Mike Mailway” trivia column (called “Grab Bag” in the San Francisco Chronicle). Read a few and get back to work.
