It's probably pretty much common knowledge now, but The Onion (www.theonion.com) is the only remaining, consitently pee-your-pants funny, popular culture satire out there now that The Simpsons has descended into mediocrity and self-mockery.

www.salon.com has some pretty snappy writing on a dizzying number of subjects. Ummm... I can't think of anything else at the moment.

If you like internet CBC, check out internet BBC. You can choose radio programs and listen to them any time you like, with their own player. I love it at work. This is their main radio page.

If you like the onion, check out Satirewire.com, and brunching.com (I especially like their dollar store stuff). And boredatwork.com is a list of districting stupid stuff to check out, and yes, I did discover it by typing in my complaint to see what solution the internet could offer me.

Also a fave, a site my best friend Julie showed me: Dfilm Moviemaker, in which you can make your own animated, three scene movies and send them to your friends. Hours of fun.

World Conquest.

It's like "Risk" but a lot easier to win.

I find this one kind of fun when I just have a couple of minutes to kill.

My favourite web entertainment right now is making quizzes for friends and sending them out. This site makes it realllllly easy!

Quiz Your Friends .com

Maybe one day I will get around to making a BABBLE quiz. I don't think I know enough to make one though, so if 'lance, or Meades, or Michelle, or Dr. wants to make one - I'd love to try it!!

Here is a political quiz I made. It is supposed to be funny so if it offends anyone, I am sorry.

Take my Quiz on QuizYourFriends.com!

Has to be Google in its all its various forms. Google Groups archive provides wasted hours of searching for arcane and useless information. Though www.alltheweb.com has really improved its seach engine capabilities and rivals and frequently surpassess Google's seaching abilities.
And, for the hard-corers out there, check out www.archive.org which has archived much of the Internet since the beginning. Will be ever better if they bring in the ability to search as promised.
And www.paperofrecord, though in its infancy, will be an invaluable reference tool. As a demo, you can now search through 110 years of the Toronto Star. If you got an odd enough surname, it already gives you an indication what your blacksheep uncle may have been up in 19 and 02.
