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. Twenty-seven reasons why kids are actually the worst. Between being afraid of friendly animals, getting stuck in things, and breaking everything they get their tiny little hands on, Buzzfeed explains how kids are objectively the worst.

And people say you can't learn anything from violence. The magic happens around the 30-second mark and is followed by a lot of loitering and the occassional, unrelated handshake.
4. Ever wondered how bunnies cross lakes? The answer is more wonderful than we imagined. Anything that reinforces the idea that the animal kingdom is more like the world of Homeward Bound than that of I, Predator deserves your attention. There's some chatter that this may be Photoshopped, but it's probably just a smear campaign from a jealous mallard.
5. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney sing "Hot N Cold" by Katy Perry. I would like to state for the record that not writing out the word "and" in that song title is causing me great pain. But I am a slave to the truth. Watching the leader of the free world lib-dub a pop song with Mitt "My Hair Never Moves" Romney was some comfort.
6. Local link shout-out: Wealthy Texans lead in funding 2012 campaigns. According to information on opensecrets.org, the Lone Star State is home to the most significant SuperPac donors.
