Interesting Fun Stuff
While I am surfing on the web, I run into many fun places to visit. I thought I would take a break from the serious side of the internet for a while and give you some of the fun things. Enjoy yourself. Be prepared, though, to find that you have lost a while afternoon, weekend or even week exploring some of these places!
Darwin Awards
DarwinAwards is a great site to visit. Learn about those people who killed themselves in really stupid ways. Why is it called the Darwin award? Survival of the fittest - in other words, these people help the species by dying.
Game Zone
MSN has created a web based gaming site which is loads of fun! The wonderful ladies in a

group called Misker’s Denizens sent me the URL for a game called Bejeweled,, and I haven’t been able to stop playing since. It’s easy and it’s fun.
Exploring the rest of Game zone at reveals a wide variety of free and pay games, including such classics as Ants, Backgammon, Bejeweled, Blackjack, Bridge, Checkers, Chess, Cribbage, Double Trouble, Go, Hearts, Spades and many others. In addition, if you’ve purchased a game from a retail outlet such as Quake or Age of Empires you can play it online from this site.
Another fun site is the M&M site at There are lots of different fun things to do, which I’m sure the kids will love and even as an adult I found very enjoyable. This is a fine example of a corporation turning which could be just another stuffy site into something that will bring people back again and again.

Technosphere (no longer active)
Note: I’ve kept this here for historical purposes. The Technosphere site is no longer active.
Want to have some fun with artificial life forms? Try visiting Technosphere, and you will get a fascinating look at a strange, computer generated reality.
“TechnoSphere is a 3D model world inhabited by artificial lifeforms created by WWW users. There are thousands of creatures in the world all competing to survive. They eat, fight, mate and create offspring which evolve and adapt to their environment. When you make a creature it will email you to let you know what it has been getting up to in its world. Using the creature tools you can find out how your creature is surviving, what it is doing at any time, and where it is in the terrain.” — Technosphere home page
What you do is exactly what this says. You go to that web site and create a “creature” by putting together different body parts. You can choose the head, eyes, body and wheels, then set the creature loose in the mythical world. You will periodically get emails updating you on the life and times of your creature. Don’t be surprised if it dies, and it it does go back and create another one.
