…Internet porn is an interesting subject?

It should come as no surprise that the internet and porn are connected at the hip, but when you actually think about the numbers behind the pornography industry, it can be a bit overwhelming.

For instance, did you know that 35% of all internet downloads are pornographic? Or how about the fact that the United States spends $13.6 billion dollars every year on porn?

For those fun facts and more, check out this handy infographic that OnlineEducation.net put together:

Indy 500 Car Tracker

The Indy 500 Car Tracker that The Indianapolis Star put together for last weekend’s race is a very interesting way of looking at racing.

The post is crawled, indexed, mined, scraped, republished, and propagated throughout the Web, going from servers to spiders to suits – to you.
