Fun & Interesting Websites

Everyone has their favorite websites, and it can be fun to find "new" websites (even if they've been around for years).

Let me start it off with The Straight Dope.

This site tries to answer, in an interesting way, some of the burning issues of the day:
Why is the Bronx called THE Bronx?
or
Is it true the British have abolished punctuation?
And the really big one -
Did a French vaudeville star once specialize in trained flatulence?


Another entertaining time waster is Cracked

Here's a good place to start:
The 5 Most Terrifying Side Effects of Exercise
and
5 Iconic Corporate Mascots Invented by Mistake


Enjoy

Nawww! That's a poopy site.


This is something you just have to try:
Soar Through Cities With Nokia's 3D Ovi Maps

"Have you seen these new 3D city maps from Nokia's Ovi Maps service? They're pretty amazing."

Not just "pretty" amazing, VERY AMAZING!

Thanks for both of these. Excellent reading and I added Cracked to my RSS newsfeed. Sadly, Straight Dope doesn't have an RSS news feed, very surprising in this day and age.

I like the Know Your Meme website, it gives humorous descriptions of the current meme trends, and it's fun coming across memes that I'm familiar with. It's kind of like bumping into old friends.

And they have forums too! I have been tempted to join in quite a few times. I love forums!

Oh yeah, and Gaia Online too. I tend to hang out there quite frequently too.

I like to check out the near earth approaches to see how close we all came to going the way of the dinosaurs, and how close it is going to be in the near future.

Oh yeah, Live Science, another good site to spend a little time on.

I tried the train game at Orisinal where a person runs along the carraige roofs and liked it. I will have a look at more there. Thanks for mentioning about it.

Try Add/Read a good joke to lighten your day. People there try to find the best jokes.
