Funny thing about the Internet: Just about any Web site you can think of is probably out there, and if it's not, well hey! Let's do it!

That's the attitude that keeps the Net so entertaining and unpredictable. Somebody walking down the street thinks, "Wouldn't it be neat to create a site in which people placed bets on celebrity deaths?" and *poof*, there's a site for it.

Or somebody thinks, "Wouldn't it be cool to make a site full of movie reviews that were always completely negative no matter what?" and *poof*, there's a site for it.

Or somebody thinks, "Wouldn't it be fun to have a site where the best articles of several alternative newsweeklies were put together in one reader-friendly package?" and *poof*, there's a site for it.

Of course, you end up with some really strange sites. Take a look at this story and you'll see what I mean. Somebody actually decided to attempt charting people's potentially psychic dreams. (That's one way to prove skeptics right.) The article also touches on legal cases involving spam and Java, and the programming language HTML's latest competitor..there's something for everybody, I tell ya.

Continuing in an electronic circuit, here's a guide to geeky email acronyms, as well as those little faces :-) that always make my neck ache from excessive head-tilting. :-( If anything, this "E-bonics" primer will help you decipher the interview }:) with Netchick Carla Sinclair over in the Books section. ;-D

And for those of you who prefer to cybersurf on a wave of ale, guzzle your eyes upon these links to great beers and breweries.

I don't know what the creators of "art cars" are drinking, but it must be strong. Not to be rude, but I have just two words for these car-culture casualties: buy canvasses!
