Here’s a cool website that has a periodic table of the elements. When you click each element, a page is displayed showing where that element has been referenced in comics.

Don't Click It is a great, innovative site that everyone should check out. Is it the wave of the future for computer/mouse navigation? I can't say, but there are some interesting and fun experiments that make you think.
The basic idea of the entire website is to navigate the entire site without once clicking your mouse button. It work's really well and the only time I wanted (or felt a click would work better) is on the wave left/right button select. Definitely a site to check out.
Photographer DULCE PINZON has an amazing set of photos dedicated to the work of Mexican immigrant workers who send money to their families every month. She’s dressed the workers as popular superheroes and each photo depicts them at work as the hero. Do yourself a favor and check out all the photos in the series.
Leave it to Tennessee to have one of the sneakiest, and some say unconstitutional, ways to make money off of illegal drugs.
Seems that all illegal drugs in the state of Tennessee are required to have an unauthorized substances tax stamp. A person with over a gram of an illegal substance must purchase (anonymously, of course) stamps in person at the Department of Revenue. Here’s a description of Who is required to pay the tax from the State of Tennessee website:
The tax is due by any dealer who possesses an unauthorized substance upon which the tax has not been paid as evidenced by a stamp available from the Tennessee Department of Revenue. A "dealer" is any person who possesses one or more marijuana plants or more than 42.5 grams of marijuana, seven or more grams of any other unauthorized substance that is sold by weight, 10 or more dosage units of any other unauthorized substance not sold by weight, or any illicit alcoholic beverage.
Tennessee makes the most money from illegal drug seizures without the stamp. Since the tax was enacted in 2004, no seizures made have had the stamp affixed, meaning the State then taxes the offender at up to 10 times the amount of the stamp cost. That’s where the legality of the tax comes into question. Read the fill story over at Time.com.
