1) Memory of the World

This UNESCO project preserves important documents around the world. The idea is to save cultural moments that are on paper so that in a few thousand years our important thoughts don't resemble those we've found in Egypt. The website is thorough and lists every object they have preserved. These include Tesla's papers and photographs of Palestinian refugees.


2) 2,500-Year-Old Siberian Tattoos



3) Never Mind The Buzzcocks

You should be watching this amazing British TV show. Why? Because it is amazing and hilarious and totes worth the hours of YouTube viewing.
