Today's #CoolSite is a complete and total freak of nature--a MORE THAN gifted web sensation, Zach King. I warn you: you will be sucked into his world and your mind will be blown. The last time I was this impressed with the use of technology for entertainment purposes was when I discovered zefrank. Zach takes it all a bit further. Below is just ONE of his many Vines (he also dominates YouTube). Anyway, read his story and get ready for a fun ride. Vote for it here and give it a ‘thumbs up’ above.

Here's a cool medical PSA (public service announcement) courtesy of Jimmy Kimmel Live. Jimmy feels that all of this anti-vaccination silliness is starting to snowball, so he invited some real doctors to address it. These are actual medical professionals so hear them out and then decide for yourself. Best part is that doctor #5 (@3:04) is my friend's brother!

Today's #CoolSite is SignPost (@signpostSMB), the absolute must have tool for growing your local business. I learned of SignPost from, where else, @jason's This Week In Startups.
