Wikipedia's Random Function. Sure, you know Wikipedia is a great place to go to
Found. Ever find someone's shopping list on the ground? Or their maths homework? Found collects these sorts of things and then displays them for the world to see. I'm endlessly fascinated with other people and hopelessly nosy, so I love this site. Make sure you read their About page, which has one of the best Found notes ever.
Popcap Games. I was a kid before Nintendo, so my happiest childhood memories are of really uncomplicated video games. Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Adventure, Frogger – that kind of thing. As a result, I love a good, easy video game. Yes, I like killing space aliens from a first person perspective too, but sometimes, I just want to click buttons and get rewards. Popcap has a great collection of basic video games, which you can either purchase as full versions or play cut-down Web versions. My favourite online games are Rocket Mania and Alchemy. My dad owns Bookworm but it is so addictive, I cannot have it on any computer in my house.
