In 1998, Ken Blackburn's 27.6 second paper airplane flight set a new Guinness Book record for time aloft. It all started at age thirteen, when Ken created a paper plane that could fly over a quarter of a mile. He kept refining the design, and while in college won his first world record. It takes Ken "three months of working out and airplane-tweaking" to prepare for a record breaking. And yes, he does share the plans for his record breaking planes.

Anne Marie Helmenstine, Ph.D. is About.com's chemistry guide. But you don't need a Ph.D. to follow her recipes for a bouncing polymer ball, electroactive slime, fake snot (eww!), Metamucil flubber, or glow-in-the-dark slime. I was fascinated by her illustrated Floam recipe. "Floam is like slime with polystyrene beads in it, that kids can mold into shapes. You can sculpt with it or use it to coat other objects. You can store it to reuse it or allow it to dry, if you want permanent creations."

BBC has put together a fantastic collection of interactive games (Building the Ultimate Tomb and The Mummy Maker), multimedia galleries ( Gods, Animals, and a tour of Khufu's Pyramid Complex), and feature articles. Everything here is excellent, but here are three of my favorite clicks: the illustrated Egyptian timeline from 3100 BCE to 395 CE; The Short History of Pyramidology, which reveals some pretty wacky theories about who actually built the Pyramids; and hieroglyphic postcards to send to friends and family.
