    While researching various topics, I often run across 'interesting websites'. Usually I just archive the URL with AbiWord to re-visit later, which serves me well, but no one else benefits. Been thinking I would start a thread here to list these sites, and if anyone wants to add their discoveries, feel free.

    @Neville Telen
    The first link provided some immediate, very interesting reading as I scanned over it. Whether or not I would join, I'm not yet sure. however, several OPs were of such significant current value, I toyed with copying them.

    For example, a study conducted in 8 countries found plastic remnants in human stools of virtually all samples tested. Consequences? Unknown.

    Some of you should investigate this link, IMO.

    Glad it was useful. I tend to avoid 'news', but I suspect some here do not, and as I will probably not add these URLs to my 'archive'. I thought someone might get some mileage from it.

    http://make-everything-ok.com/

    Wait for the page to load and click the button. Watch the download of everything being made OK in your life.

    My daughter sent me this one. Do you have any sites that you find amusing?

    @Joe Riley The first one was hilarious! The next one I bookmarked. Plan to use it when I get ready to sleep during all the neighborhood fireworks. Not the good kind, the cheap kind that just make noise. Thanks!

    Telehack is a simulation of a stylized arpanet/usenet, circa 1985-1990 (which is the exact time period in which I ran a BBS). It is a full multi-user simulation, including 25,000 hosts and BBS's from the early net, thousands of files from that era, a collection of adventure games, a working BASIC interpreter with a library of programs to run, simulated historical users, and so on. This is what it was like to be on a BBS before graphic interfaces were in use.
