What are we reading this morning? Take a look for yourself. Here’s a link dump to go with that cup o’ joe:

Spiders are making statues of themselves using leaves and sticks. It’s only a matter of time before they discover technology and take over the planet.

Anti-government demonstrations are going on right now in the Ukraine and a Kiev blogger is live streaming them.

You know that New York Times graph that tried to predict your accent? It’s the company’s most viewed story of 2013. It was also created by an intern. In case you were wondering, the Times actually does pay their interns.

Call Interpol! Someone stole the mayor of Brussel’s underpants!

A new study suggests that pollution in China caused from the manufacture of products for U.S. consumption is responsible for an extra day of smog in Los Angeles. Butterfly effect and all that jazz.

Penn State students are trying to crowdfund a mission to the moon, most likely as a way to distract from the Jerry Sandusky debacle (yes, that was a cheap shot, but eh, what are you gonna do about it?)

Why your dog’s name matters.

Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) police officer accidentally killed a colleague. Here’s a thought: after this and the wrongful shooting of Oscar Grant, it might not be such a good idea to give these guys weapons.

San Francisco recently decided to start charging companies who use the city’s bus stops for their shuttles. Unfortunately, that money—upwards of $1.5 million a year—will never actually go to the city. I’m not one to advocate for class warfare, but…wait, no yes I am. Down with the 1 percent!
