I don't know if this thread has been started before... nothing came up in search...but I rarely ever browse around the internet for fun but I want to now and I need to know some cool/fun/unusual sites so please share! I'm open to anything.
my favorite website for when i am hanging out with my little bros.
Seek freedom and become captive of your desires, seek discipline and find your liberty.
"If you go looking for something in particular, your chances of finding it are very bad, because of all the things in the world, you're only looking for one of them. If you go looking for anything at all, your chances of finding it are very good, because of all the things in the world, you're sure to find some of them."
Hulu Free archived major television shows. Nice format, good quality, pretty recent updates.
TED - Great video site where a bunch of smart speakers make little short presentations (20 mins). There's a bunch of stuff in there if you ever get curious, it's a great site to get you thinking a little bit and serves sort of as a precursor to following or studying something more in depth. Kill some time, brain storm, see what leading professionals are doing.
Gotta thank PT for showing me that site. I love it!
My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.
World Wide Words- really cool website where this guy talks about the origin and meaning of words/expressions and stuff
I read yesterday one entry that I found particularly amusing: about the Cupertino effect*. It's the phenomena where the spellcheck's first suggestion to fix a "mispelled" word is completely illogical/erroneous. I've definitely ("defiantly"!) been plagued with this before so I was tickled to learn the problem has such a funny name.
*If you're too lazy to read it, basically it says that early spellcheckers (Microsoft Word '97?) set to British standardized spelling wanted to change the mispelled "cooperation" to "Cupertino" (the California city) rather than "co-operation".
