Links

Here are some links to my favourite websites...


AboveTopSecret.com

Discussion forum for conspiracy theories, UFOs, general weird stuff. Polybius anyone?

Amazon.co.uk

Not just useful for buying books, CDs & DVDs. The customer reviews are entertaining in their own right (especially the 1-star ones).

Amazon.com

American version. Bigger. More reviews.

BBC News

Recommended news website.

Cracked.com

Humour website along the lines of '10 unusual things to do with a dead cat'.

DiscoverExeter.Net

Where I've lived for the past fifteen years .

Domesday Reloaded

Remember the BBC Domesday Project? Probably not if you're under thirty. A good example of digital obsolescence .

Google

The Web's premier search engine, and a host of other good stuff.

h2g2

Space is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mindbogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space.

IMDb

The Internet Movie Database. Everything you could possibly want to know about your favourite movies. The message boards are a hoot.

Internet Archive

10+ petabytes should keep you going for a bit. Wayback Machine is especially useful.

KeepVid

Rip streaming video from eg YouTube onto your hard drive.

Memory Alpha

Premier Star Trek site on the Web. A trekkie's wet dream.

Nonags

Comprehensive freeware site.

Open Directory Project - Dartmoor

A selection of websites about beautiful Dartmoor .

Snopes.com

A fried rat in your KFC? Babysitter on LSD sticks baby in microwave? Urban legends ahoy.

SongMeanings

Song lyrics and analysis.

textfiles.com

Literally thousands of text documents preserved from early Bulletin Board Systems . Deliciously subversive.

The Hillfigure Homepage

Hill figures are giant visual representations (commonly horses) cut into hillsides, usually to reveal the white chalk underneath.

The Scale of the Universe 2

Flash webpage where you can zoom in to the size of a Planck length and zoom out to the size of the observable universe. Fascinating.

The Straight Dope

Questions and answers. Fighting ignorance since 1973.

UFO Casebook

Whether you believe in little green men or not this site makes fascinating reading.

Wikipedia

Probably my favourite site on the Web (can you tell?!).

YouTube

Talking dogs, comical cats, alleged aliens, helicopter crashes etc.
