If I was trapped on an island with just one web site, this would be a contender.
Radio Free Earth "Radio Free Earth finds the #1 song according to the Billboard Charts on a random (or determined) date, measures how long ago that date was, finds a named star that distance away, and then outputs which star that #1 song is just reaching at this moment."

Bad photography, and a dry wit.  (And a descriptive url.)
The new Ultimate Meal.  It sounds great.

It's still very chalky. Not gritty -- there's no feeling of sand or anything, just smooth powder rolling through my mouth. Fortunately, being chilled has drastically improved my perception of how it tastes.


I don't feel particularly energized, but I don't feel particularly un-energized, either.
Yet another site found by asking "I wonder if someone's made a site that does X?".

With this combined with kindle samples, I may never wonder what to read next again.
I don't plan on being a runner, but I find this really inspiring anyway.
Planet Resizer updated with better resize buttons:
Cool time visualization.  Spoiler: we are a spec of time.  Also, the earth existed for a good portion of the existence of the universe?
First, consider this Shaker hymn.

Then, consider this performance by the Voices of East Harlem at Sing Sing Prison .

Google is sunsetting Reader.  To quote my wife, "What are we supposed to do!?"
The most accessible song on the new They Might Be Giants album also has the creepiest lyrics.

(Might they have been shooting for inaccessibility on this one??)
This is my new favorite thing:
In 1987, an anonymous team of computer scientists from the Kyrgyz Soviet Socialist Republic wrote a series of children's books based on the popular Choose Your Own Adventure series. The books were hastily translated into English and a small number were exported to America, but the CIA, fearing a possible Soviet mind control scheme, confiscated them all before they could be sold.

Now declassified, the books have been lovingly converted to a digital hypertext format and put online for the English-speaking world to enjoy.
I missed part of this video because I couldn't see through the tears filling my eyes.
Another one of my ideas, stolen.  (Apparently my ideas are not particularly unique.)
I might just listen to this song on repeat for the rest of the day.
