    While I'm looking to enhance my daily reading repertoire, I'm sure I could learn about an intellectually stimulating site or two to add from here. Right now, my go-tos are Gawker (they break eccentric news quickly), plus Gizmodo and Engadget for my tech addiction. I'll check Entrepreneur.com and The Verge every once in a while but I feel my selection is lacking.

    My go-to is 4chan. I never really "got" Reddit.

    Really? White supremacy? I hope you're joking.

    I like www.space.com in addition to nature and national geographic that have already been mentioned.

    You don't find it compelling to stay up to date with how much hate and bigotry there still is out there? I think it's important to stay informed.

    Odd that you'd initially suggest that without any such qualifications.

    But to answer your question, I find those beliefs so utterly repulsive to my being that I can not manage to do direct 'grassroots' research. I prefer to rely on people who do have such a stomach like the good folks at the Southern Poverty Law Center.

    Great source for both wide-ranging and in-depth news, blogs, and podcasts covering national security, intelligence, and foreign policy.

    (Yes, I know...the formatting could use some work. But the content makes it worthwhile.)

    If you want to be intellectually unstimulated, visit the PRSI section of this forum.

    I concur.

    Because if there's a subject that's compelling enough to be newsworthy, it's compelling enough to be satirized.
