-- From the "Ha! I knew it!" file: Dogs are smarter than cats.

-- It turns out if you draw Charlie Brown realistically, but still with his cartoon proportions, he looks really creepy. Ditto for Homer Simpson.

-- John Hughes passed away recently; here's a very moving tribute to him. And here's a funny scene from the original script of Ferris Bueller's Day Off that never made it to the movie.

-- Scientists have discovered what they think is a 14,000-year-old map. Cool.

-- Knights and Knaves puzzles. Knights only tell the truth and knaves only tell lies, so you have to figure out who is what. Some add spies who can tell the truth or lie. If you want some clues, see here. If they're too easy for you, see if you can solve The Hardest Logical Puzzle Ever.
