So you think you're clever...
...then truck on over and try your hand at captioning some of the pics at CaptionMyKitten.com . The site is pretty new, and I don't think you'll be too hard pressed to top most of the entries I saw posted. You won't win anything, except, perhaps, the respect and admiration of other people who don't have anything better to do with their time than caption über-cute pictures of kitties. However, it strikes me as a slightly less socially retarded way to kill a bit of time than running around pretending to be a 'mage' in WoW.
A Bit of lovely erotic art for you
It's just like being in 5th grade again. Crude sexual drawings rendered in that delightful art program bundled with Windows, MSPaint. It's crude, sophomoric, and definitely NSFW... still it has some roguish charm. Perhaps it's the knowledge that 14 year old pervs are spending their time drawing what they think sex is like rather than actually finding out. It also serves to show off the amazing drawing power of MSPaint, and to make you wonder why in God's name Microsoft bothers to bundle a piece of software that apparently hasn't been updated since the days of Windows 3.1.
At least this isn't a link to the pics of Britney's snatch
'Dress me up in feathers! Dress me up in boas! 'Cause I'm going, yes I'm going, on doh-mi-doh-doh!'* The folks at Heavy.com have fashioned this Mel Gibson dress-up set. Dress Mel as Jesus... or as a leatherman... or as a Nazi...or a klansman... or as a drunken anti-Semite. I'm sure a Michael Richards version is in the works.

Ugh, just ugh
Ever since I was a grad student at Northwestern's medical school and was treated to the sight of the wall of jarred birth defect babies that lined the hallway of one the basements, I've been fascinated by this sort of stuff. There was something surreal about the sight of infants that were in some respects so perfectly formed and in other respects so wrong. This site, which features some pretty gruesome pics, is a medical reference site. If you have the stomach for it, slow down a little while you're cruising the information superhighway and do a little rubbernecking. I'll skip the jokes on this one.
