I have been hungry for new interesting things lately and have stumbled across some really cool web curiosities(or something like that).
http://www.43things.com - Life goal setting! How fun! And people cheer you on!! Just what I need!
http://www.freerice.com - Enhance your vocabulary. Play a little game. Feed hungry people. A win, Win, WIN!!
http://www.pandora.com - Ever wish you could talk to the radio and tell it how you really loved that song -but really hate this one? That's what pandora is. They're geniuses, I tell you geniuses!
http://www.gratefulness.org/candles - It's like beautiful spiritual place that can fit the whole world. I grew up in a Presbyterian church where, as youth, we lit the service candles. But I have to say it wasn't nearly as moving or cathartic for me as these little internet ones.
http://www.thestoryofstuff.com - If you haven't seen it yet, watch it.
http://www.eightprinciples.com and http://www.fivebigquestions.com - Thought provoking and entertaining....sooooo how I roll.
http://www.longnow.org - I just love smart people who think about things like this and make foundations to support them. Leave it to us humans to think about time and existence in a scientific way further than 2 or 3 lifetimes into it.
http://www.ted.com - More smart people!! And they're sharing!!
That's all today children. Good luck prying yourself from your puter for a while. ;-) Escapist?! Not me.
