Want to know what’s going on in the chambers of the highest court in the land? Scotusblog is an excellent blog and its wiki-sister, ScotusWiki, offer expert and exhaustive coverage of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Did you know it’s quite possible that a severed head may actually feel pain for a while, post-separation? I think that’s damn interesting, and so do the editors at Damn Interesting, enough to write an 1,100-word article about it. Their goal is to “collect and dispense damn interesting facts and ideas, whether they appeared in the past, the present, or the (anticipated) future.” For example, did you know a supercollider was almost built under the plains of central Texas? Or that New York almost had a subway system based on pneumatic tubes? If you find that damn interesting, visit Damn Interesting.
