There's always some killer blog, video or Flickr page awaiting discovery. Scott Lamb, editor at Buzzfeed.com, helps provide an essential service for those who want to stay one step ahead: He and his friends cull the Web so you don't have to.

How best to use our valuable Internet time this week:

  • Hitler Subtitle Mashups: Crafty types taking a scene from the film Der Untergang about the downfall of Adolf Hitler, and resubtitling it. Imagine a raging Hitler screaming about Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears, about his star getting stolen, about getting banned from Microsoft Live. " It's weird, but the words seem to match his emotions," Lamb says.
  • Photobombing: Sneaking into the background of other people's photographs. "Anything that has a nice name like that usually does pretty well," Lamb says. Sometimes this is done with NSFW intentions, so clickers beware.
  • Cats on Treadmills: "Imagine a cat on a treadmill," Lamb says. "That is funny."
