Hi, I decided to list a bunch of websites for information streaming and reading. I'll be adding a bunch every now and then and compile and categorize everyone's suggestions.

You're free (recommended!) to contribute - anything goes, as long as it's on the web, it's informative and its topics is inclined to the smarts (fashion and video game blogs generally don't count; travel blogs and story-reading podcasts and even science Tumblrs do). Individual webpages don't count. If you're not sure if it counts, go ahead and suggest it anyway. Submit suggestions in the comment section.

aeon.co
artofmanliness.com
brainpickings.com
clarkesworldmagazine.com (fiction stories)
cracked.com (trivia on crack)
creativitypost.com
duolingo.com (language learner)
economist.com
eurekalert.org
existentialcomics.com (humorous philosophy comics)
freerice.com (vocabulary game that donates to charity)
freakonomics.com
gizmodo.com

www.jagranjosh.com/general-knowledge
khanacademy.org (education; helps for school too)

mentalfloss.com
nationalgeographic.com
nautil.us (science)

quora.com (question-answer with verified? professionals)

Podcasts:
tdf.libsyn.com/dorkforest
stuffyoushouldknow.com/podcasts/
clarkesworldmagazine.com/

Note that I want this to be as wide and varied as possible, so even if the website has controversial or strong political/ideological/ect. leanings or biases I'm probably going to add it to the list anyway. Possibly with a warning.

Your local nerd comes back to visit.

I'm not really learning a language right now, but I just encountered this anyway and I think it's pretty cool. Learning language tips from experts.

Uh.

You're totally free to post something. Despite the last post having being posted a year ago.

If you want to watch the full animation short: https://vimeo.com/126177413
It's about the adventures of a rock. 

I love Seth Boyden's animations, so I'm gonna add a link to his other works too.

Just changed this group's face into Darth Vader. Because nerds and dark side.

Other considerations were Doc Brown (whose face might not be familiar to all), C-3PO, the Doctor from Who and actual Japanese robots.

Suggest an awesomely smart-ish pop culture photo if you dislike the dark side.

Apparently depressed people make better decisions.

The theory is: decision-making gives depressed people, who don't have control over their environment, a sense of control over something else.

I doubt life decisions count.
