Happy Independence Day, Guinea-Bissau!

I'll start off today with a bit of silly humor -- when cloning goes wrong.

Check out for some of the nerdiest (and awesomest) t-shirts online.

FactMonster is an online almanac for school children, but it has plenty of good factoids for a trivia junkie like me.

Cosmotions is one of the coolest photography sites I've come across lately. What it lacks in flash and refinement, it makes up for with content. It's a collection of time-lapse photo animations of a variety of natural phenomena. Super Sweet. Now if only the webmasters could spring for more bandwidth (the animated GIF files average around 5Mb and take forever to download, but it's worth the wait).

Go to the Breathing Earth site for a visual representation of carbon dioxide emissions for every country in the world, as well as birth and death rates. Makes me want to hug a tree (nude backside, beware).

The Raw Story is an alternative news aggregator based out of Washington, D.C. From their mission statement: "At the core, our goal is to unearth and spotlight stories underplayed by the popular press, in particular those which highlight betterment and open people’s eyes to injustice throughout the world." Now go read it and see what the mainstream news outlets have been hiding from you.
