Any interesting RSS suggestions?

I saw in another thread someone mention adding The Daily WTF to their RSS list, and I thought to myself "Snap! That's one of the feeds I read".

So what other RSS feeds to people read then? I'm guessing that there'll be a strong tendency towards news and IT related feeds, but given the general level of wierdness I've seen in MD, there could be some interesting ones. Not that news and IT isn't interesting, but you get what I mean. Any good suggestions?

The feeds I currently read are:

BBC World News
BBC News Football
BBC News Football: Reading FC
Dublin Core Metadata Initiative
The Daily WTF
Reuters Oddly Enough
The Register
Wikinews Latest News

If you are interested in urban legends, I would recommend snopes over about.com anyday. Much more accurate and entertaining.

My blogroll -

http://www.bloglines.com/public/sonnygill

I keep changing it actively, depending on my usage and current areas of interest.

Most are technical, except for a few 'personal' blogs based in India that keep me in touch with what's happening back home.

Oh, and if you havent tried bloglines yet, you should have a look at it, pretty cool.

What would be good is RSS feeds for the forums (or is it fora?) on JavaRanch - each time a new topic is posted, the feed for that forum adds another item with a link to it. That way it would be easy to monitor a favourite forum for interesting topics.
