While the world waits for the royal baby, the Internet chugged along, offering up commentary on Emmy nominees (and snubs!) as well as some heart-warming (and stomach-turning) stories.

Keep reading for what kept people clicking this week.

• Emmy Nominations Were Announced, Leading Many to Cry that Scandal Was Snubbed for Best Drama.
Olivia Pope is already on it.

• Web Cam Shows Bears Fishing for Salmon.
Mostly they’re just waiting around for something to happen. Much like every reporter camped out in front of Kate’s hospital.

• Internet Hijacks Contest so 39-Year Old Man Can Meet Taylor Swift
Her probable reaction when he walks in:

• The Internet Also Arranged a Pizza Party for a Young Girl with Cancer.
Proving the Internet isn’t all middle-aged men who want to smell Taylor Swift’s hair.

• World’s Fastest Drummer Breaks Guinness World Record with 1,208 strokes in 60 Seconds.
That’s more than 20 strokes a second. The line forms to the left, ladies.
