First of all, let me just say that xkcd is quickly becoming a cultural touchstone for me. The most recent comic is particularly interesting, because I'm always amazed at how people have similar stress dreams (teeth falling out, the actor's nightmare, etc.) for no obvious reason. My version of the one from the comic is sometimes actually in high school, and other times in college. Haven't had it in a while (though, now I'm almost assured to soon).

Shoe tying

I would've thought that I had mastered tying my shoes a long time ago, but it turns out that I've been tying granny knots instead of reef knots my whole life. This is going to change everything! Hat tip to keraven.

Seagram plaza

Very cool 1970s(?) film about the social life in NYC's Seagram plaza, via kottke.org. This one's for you, ScottoPlanner Urbanicus.
