Let's all gawk at the Burj, that is, the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world!

The Oatmeal's handy guide to frequently misspelled words has been all over the interwebs lately, but it's also now in poster form for those of you who need to remind people about these words all the time.

Flickr finished its Best Shot of 2009 roundup, but how about your worst shot of 2009? I have several!

Also on Flickr: The Found's vernacular photos are lovely and intriguing.

And finally...the fact that we humans can read and understand the written word so well fascinates me. Now scientists are digging into the neurology that makes such a thing possible.

Re: Found's photos

I would love to know the story behind the story of "He Guided Her Ever Since." Could it have gone something like this?

"Yes, we obliterated your entire family, but Jesus saved you, so, sit still while we cut your hair. No tears about wearing this dress, this is not a time for tears. You should be thanking the lord you have a pretty, white dress like this to wear. Would you rather wear dirty animal skins or disgusting bark skirts? Huh? Would you? I said, STOP CRYING or I will give you somthing to cry about, you little heathen. You should feel lucky Jesus loves you in spite of the fact you're a savage. Now smile for the camera."

Seriously! Hahahahahaha
