Bizarre Stuff You Can Make in Your Kitchen
The kitchen isn't just a place to whip up some nachos, it can also be a secret lab where you play the mad scientist. With this site, relive junior high science class days with at-home experiments. Concoct strange goo, build a radio from razor blades or make homemade stink bombs - all from the safety of your own kitchen.
Possum Trot Whippet Farm
The best part of this site has to be the photo of a woman with a feather boa and her whippet. As most personal pet sites go, this has some of the best photos of such an odd breed of dog. The cute puppy photo section will melt any grump's heart.
The Sergio Leone Home Page
Movie director Sergio Leone gave spaghetti westerns a good name. He's the fella that brought movie goers, "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" and "A Fistful of Dollars." He also made actor Clint Eastwood the gunslinging hero we know him as today. I recommend playing the sound files really loud and pretending you're about to draw your gun at high noon.
The Unofficial Addams Family site
They're creepy and they're kooky, mysterious and spooky, they're altogether ooky, the Addams Family. Read episode guides from both this popular TV show and cartoon, as well as information about the Addams Family movies. There are plenty of pictures and sound files on this site to keep any creepy kid happy.
The Grenade Recognition Manual
If you think it looks like a grenade, don't pick it up! But if you want to know what kind of grenade it is, check out this handy online manual. This site tells you if the grenade is British, French or German with nice big photos. Each grenade has a description that even tells you how long the delay is from when you pull the pin to when it explodes.
Here's a fan site for scream queen actress Barbara Steele. You may remember her from some classic horror films as "The Long Hair of Death" and "Piranha." Most fans remember her best from the masterpiece of the '60s European-horror genre, "The Mask of Satan."
Too cheap to buy a real card? Go to Electronic Postcards to send a greeting for any mood or occasion. In fact, the best cards on the site are in the insult section. Send a postcard showing worms, with the caption "You are disgusting" or a card of a beach sunset with the caption "You suck." You can also choose the background and text color, as well as attach a MIDI music file of a popular tune to go along with your message. Of course, if you actually have friends and a decent relationship, there are plenty of happy, kind cards to choose from.
