I'm just sitting here today, with nothing to do. I can't go geocaching today, which would have really been great as it's pretty nice out and I'm itching to find some caches! My company's annual, end-of-year, non-religious-themed party is tonight. I hate going since I'm seriously the only single person there, but it gives me an opportunity to wear some really great new shoes (I have this thing for high heeled shoes, but given my job and my geocaching hobby, I don't have many times to wear them). Anyway, this has nothing to do with the subject now, does it?

When not geocaching, or here on the WGA forums, what websites do you like to visit?

Here are some of my favorites. Some use "colorful" language that might not be family-friendly, but I think they are all fun:

Found Magazine Things that people have found just laying around.
The Sneeze This guy is just hilarious!
Woot A cool twist on online buying.
The Knowledge For Thirst This site has not been updated for a while, but it has some funny reviews of beverages.
Bent Objects Some great artwork using wire and other interesting media.

Sorry, I can't list the other sites since this one is family friendly. Correct?

I just remembered something from computer training in Arizona:

There are 4 websites:

whitehouse.com
whitehouse.org
whitehouse.gov
whitehouse.net

One is the real White House. Another is a fake site that spoofs the real one, including pictures of the White House being painted pink! That generated a lot of complaints.

A third is a porno site. Not sure what the other one might be.

The point here is that you need to want what you type.

My one-stop-shop for all my weather needs:
www.mke-skywarn.org

Athelstane Weather
Weather conditions and lots of web cams at this guy's cabin. Fun to watch the time lapse of the camera. Lots of wildlife caught on video.
