The Kings of Israel – This infographic “illustrates the rulers of Israel, the years of their reign, how well they reigned and the passages in the Bible where their stories are told.

Hang in There, Mom and Dad – This blogger crunches the numbers and finds an interesting correlation–parents who remain together have children whose first sexual experiences are later.

The Greatest Dance Number Ever – I’d put this up against the best modern-day stunt for its sheer skill and athleticism. Fred Astaire said it was the greatest dance number ever filmed. No doubt.
