Below-ground homes are great environmentally, since they use less energy. But while they're cool, both literally and figuratively, they're expensive to build. That is, unless someone's already done the work for you. Someone like, say, the US Government. So whether you're looking for a really cool house, or just want a pre-built supervillain lair, there's not much that can beat an old 1960s ICBM missile silo complex. While you may not get one exactly where you want, you can't argue with the awesome that is 20th Century Castles (Missile Bases).

Here's a site that is taking its time to display the wide variety of sweaters worn by the main character and star of The Cosby Show. It's funny for anyone that remembers the 80s, and hilarious (or horrifying) for everyone else. It's all on display at The Cosby Sweater Project.

We've all lost them before, and have wondered at the mystery that is the disappearing sock. Perhaps they escape and live free in the world? Apparently many are downtrodden and living on the streets, as shown in this photo album of Solitary Socks.

The Onion is a major purveyor of satire. But, sadly, it's often lost on the impressionable masses that populate the internet (mostly on Facebook). Here's a site that catalogs those who missed out on their satire gene and take everything at face value, no matter how preposterous. It's Literally Unbelievable.
