Date Site Description



07/26/2000 $95,000 Adventure We've all received non-negotiable checks in the mail as advertisements for contests. But how many of us have actually tried cashing one? Well, Patrick Combs has. He chronicled the entire story on his site. This is excellent reading, so we won't tell you how the matter ended up.



07/25/2000 Totally Free Stuff Now you, too, can get semi-useless free stuff! The link content on this site ranges from pretty darn cool to somewhat weak, but, hey, it's free stuff, and who doesn't like that? Items range from e-mail accounts to food and posters to horoscopes.



07/24/2000 101 Uses for Duct Tape Wouldn't Red Green be proud? Despite the title, there are actually over 250 listed ways to use America's most useful substance. We still have to wonder about anyone that would use duct tape to bandage a wound.



07/21/2000 MyPoints Upon signing up, you get e-mail offers from various websites. Just by clicking on links, browsing sites, and accepting valuable offers, you accumulate points. These points are then good for gift certificates at tons of different retail stores and restaurants. We've been using MyPoints for over a year now, and have received almost $100 worth of gift certificates!



07/20/2000 MapBlast! Need a little direction in life? Or maybe just for a road trip? MapBlast! produces excellent maps, as well as driving directions. You should always try to verify these as best you can, but they're still better than MapQuest, their strongest rival. They also let you customize the way you print maps, directions, or a combination of both!



07/19/2000 VoyCabulary Ever come across a page with unintelligible meanings? This page allows you to enter the URL of any page and get a converted version that changes all the words on the page into links. Each of these links can then be clicked on to look the word up in a dictionary, thesaurus, or language translator. Also, by using it on your own site with the thesaurus feature, you can improve the writing on your page.



07/18/2000 Nader for President Bored with the presidential race? Sick of Mr. Stiffy Gore and General Drug-Addict Bush? In our search for a better candidate, we found Ralph Nader, who's all for restoring democracy in this country. Corporations have seized control of government at almost every level. It's about time for a change. Nader is running on the Green Party ticket this fall. For those not big on the whole voting thing, this may be your chance to cast your ballot for someone that isn't the lesser of two evils!

07/13/2000 Furniture Porn Going above and beyond the call of our duty to originality, we proudly link you to Furniture Porn. This is not a site to send the kiddies to, unless you want them looking at completely naked chairs engaged in all sorts of erotic positions. I'm surprised the Religious Right hasn't shut this place down yet. We hope you can control your passionate side.



07/12/2000 rotten dot com A fair warning: if you can't handle blood and sick jokes, you can't handle this site. The motto couldn't ring any truer: "An archive of disturbing illustration." If you're like the rest of the curious world, you'll take a peek at the most original site we've encountered to date. Autopsy, hit-by-train, and severed limb pictures abound. The humor is also quite ripe, so we couldn't ask for anything more. Go on, if you dare...

06/28/2000 Museo de las Momias
