Lessons range from Astronomy to Psychology, and they even have AP test prep videos. The lessons are organized by subjects, the university in which they came from, and which instructor taught them.

Meme’s come and go, but Knowyourmeme.com collects all the memes since the internet started and explains them. They have a graph showing when it was most in use, and examples of the meme.

[Delete the above two sentences- it's really awkward] Consumersearch.com is a site which [reword to "that"] gathers the best reviews from around the internet, and [delete "and"] ranks them for their creditability, to [change "to" to "and"] helps the consumer make intelligent purchases in the least amount of time.

    Visuwords.com- Most of us use Google or the dictionary to translate words, but most times we need to know other words associated with them. [rephrase to "Yeah, Google or a dictionary can help you learn the meaning of a word, but what about synonyms?

    ]
    you the ability [reword to "chance"] to take a [delete "take a"] tour of the universe. These tours are downloading [reword to "downloaded"] off the website, in the tours astronomers and educators guide you through space this last clause doesn't make sense? I don't get what you're trying to say. At any time you can pause the tour, [delete comma] and go off exploring by [change "by" to "to"] your own. This program obtains the highest resolution picture possible for the particular area in space you are exploring currently [change "are exploring currently" to "wish to explore"] and stores it into [change "into" to "on"] your computer.
