(I thought it was kinder than spamming my friendslist with 10 or 15 posts in a row. Going to make the tags interesting, though...)
The Redistricting Game: http://www.redistrictinggame.com/
Haven't played it yet, but the concept--teaching about redistricting and gerrymandering by making a game out of it--is very interesting.
Kinetic Sculpture: http://www.glumbert.com/media/kineticsculpture
Very cool. Actually, "kinetic" doesn't really convey it: think "auto-mobile".

What else need I say?
US States "renamed" for countries with similar GDPs: http://strangemaps.wordpress.com/2007/06/10/131-us-states-renamed-for-countries-with-similar-gdps/
A very interesting and informative visualization: it actually tells me about as much about the US as it does about the respective countries. The table at the bottom may be useful to give some context.
Gay Bomb: The Porno Flick [safe for work]: http://blog.wired.com/defense/2007/06/gay-bomb-the--1.html
Gay Bomb will take us into the future and the year 2012. George the Second has refused to step down as leader of the "free world", and the nations of Europe have banded together to fight the new American military dictatorship. Desperate to fend off its attackers, the US launches the experimental "gay bomb", designed to make the enemy forces drop their guns and turn fag. But the winds of fate blow in a different direction, and soon America is brought to its knees.
This is the best part: it appears that this has been seriously proposed...
Recent news headlines revealed that Pentagon insiders admitted to having truly considered the "gay bomb" as an example of non-lethal chemical warfare in the Iraq War. The Air Force asked for a $7.5 million grant to develop the idea, which was proposed to the government's highest scientific authority.

A mechanical binary adder, with a video of it at work. Very nicely done.http://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2007/06/second_movieplo.html

A very silly music video. Requires a bit of patience; wait until it's about a minute in before you give up on it, and about 2 minutes in it gets impressive.
