Why the Internet Was Invented, Volume 1

Greeting followers of The Great and Powerful Daniel P. Daniel!  I'd like to start a new monthly addition to The Missing Piece.  What do you say?  That's what I thought, too, but then I realized that I don't have the resources to clone Gillian Anderson.  So, as a secondary, less-awesome suggestion, at the beginning of each month I am going to share with you the links that I found worthy of the internet in the previous month.  They are certainly not all of the links that I perused, and it will definitely not be a comprehensive list of all of the trending memes (read: no shitty cat pictures).  It will hopefully be a short list of the links that made me laugh, cry or think.  Some of them will be interesting.  Some (well, most...who are we kidding) will be strange.  And some of them may get you fired or registered on the FBI's potential offender database.  So browse with care.  You may be a lot weirder in the end than when you started.  Hopefully you find them interesting as well, and I don't get detained indefinitely by Big Brother for SOPA/PIPA violations...  Enjoy, and be sure to let me know if there are any that I missed.
