So you're sitting at work. You're bored. You want to get connected to the world, but you're sick of checking cnn.com, and the BBC uses too many big words for you to understand. Also, too few pictures.
For so long, you would have wallowed in ignorance and silence. Well, no longer: Tex and Coda are here to save you.
First, you're going to check out BuzzFeed.
After that, you're going to set a new bookmark for Dark Roasted Blend, your morning mix of interesting and odd stories from around our world.
If you're the type who's a little more image-conscious, then you're going to want to check out Frost Fire Zoo, a daily blog of funny, interesting and odd images from around the world.
