Hot Clicks

 

 

1. warisboring.com

No this website isn’t boring. It’s basically a rundown of current “hot” conflicts written by some seriously ballsy or insane war correspondents. Liberia, Bosnia, Afghanistan: they go there so you don’t have to. All the articles are extremely well written and informative; you’ll get smarter just typing the address into your browser. If international politics doesn’t sound that exciting to you, the blog is updated with some very dark and often graphic cartoons depicting the brave journalists’ experiences. This isn’t your father’s Doonesbury.

 

2. englishrussia.com

Let’s face it, there’s something just plain mysterious about our Russian comrades; maybe it’s the whole communism thing, or the copious amounts vodka, or all the gorgeous blonde chicks. EnglishRussia offers an insider’s glimpse into daily Russian life. The site doesn’t really follow a format; if it’s a picture and deals with Russia, it gets posted. Russian cars, Russian recipes, pictures of 1950’s Russia, Russian tanks, Russian people in funny hats: this list could seriously go on forever.

 

3. badassoftheweek.com

Yeah this website’s kind of old; I don’t really care, it’s still awesome. The site’s name pretty much sums up its purpose. Every week the author, Amazing Ben Thompson (probably not his birth name), tells the story of someone who has done something “bad ass.” Testicle jokes and odes to killer mustaches are plenty. This site should be required reading in all U.S. schools as a way to prevent boys from wearing skinny jeans, dying their hair, or listening to Justin Bieber.

 

 

4. listverse.com

I have literally been a follower of this site since its inception several years ago. Every day they post a new top ten list. The topics range from “10 Beautiful Songs About Prostitution” to “10 Creepy Mysteries.” Sometimes you wake up, check the Verse and the list sucks (no, I don’t care about “10 Books to Give For Christmas”) but every once in a while an article like “10 Bizarre Disappearances” graces the front page. It’s like gambling; except your wife won’t leave you when it goes bad and you might actually learn something.
