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. Neil Patrick Harris gets aggressive with the margaritas while in Mexico. Like most everything, NPH is way cooler about it than you. Not me, though. I’m awesome when I’m drunk.

2. Friday Night Tykes on the Esquire Network will reinforce every negative stereotype about Texas football. Some of the coaching might seem excessive, but if the 8- and 9-year-olds don’t learn smashmouth football now, then how will they ever start when they’re 11-year-olds?

3. Here are 6 fan ideas so good they were adopted by the creators. Obviously there are some spoilers, but the one regarding how Gwen Stacy and Norman Osborn got together in the Spider-Man comics is some serious dedication. I mean, what are we to believe, that this is some sort of magic xylophone?

4. Satanists unveil design for Oklahoma Capitol monument. The 7-foot-tall, goat-headed Satan sits on a throne with two children beside him. It seems appropriate, because Oklahoma is hell. That’s a burn.

5. American Girl dolls can be freakin’ expensive. I’m going to plead ignorance on this entire subject, but I’m told that these numbers are indeed high and that the new dolls are subpar because they lack historical backgrounds. So, there you go.
