All-you-can-eat dumpster ribs top links we love right now

Editor's note: There's so much that's beautiful, funny, smart and informative on the Internet. Problem is, there's also a bunch of garbage. Here's the best of the web right now.

1. Golden Corral employee produces video evidence of disturbing food storage practices. Former Golden Corral employee Brandon Huber is known as "The Edward Snowden of restaurants." His most memorable quote, "All-you-can-eat ribs, by the dumpster," has catapulted his video into viral fame on reddit. No word yet on whether Huber will seek asylum in Venezuela.

2. The rock 'n' roll casualty who became a war hero. Jason Everman has the distinct dishonor of being kicked out of both Nirvana and Soundgarden before they hit it big. But Everman didn't sit around and pout. He joined the military and became a member of the elite U.S. Army Special Forces. 

3. How Twinkies work. It's not exactly rocket science, but those vanilla-creme filled sponge cakes are shrouded in intrigue and chemistry. How Stuff Works breaks down the process just in time for us to salivate over the snack, which return to shelves everywhere July 15. 

4. What really happens when you try to take your dog for a walk in the Texas summer. Take your puppy for a walk, they said. It will be fun, they said.

5. Proof this whole biking thing has legs. A new survey touts a 47 percent increase in U.S. bicycling commuters from 2000 to 2011. Christian Science Monitor reports that 18 new cities are setting up bike-sharing networks in 2013, which is a 50 percent increase from 2012. Dallas has had its fair share of growing pains in the bike debate, but at least we're moving in the right direction.
