An interesting and funny take on the Vietnam war from the view of a Viet Cong soldier.

It proves that humor comes from pain.

For Don & Dewey fans. And who isn't?
Learned that "Soul Motion" was produced by Sonny Bono
maybe as early as 1966.

Fuck yeah!!! I should be familiar with where you're going on that fret board but it's confusing! And the approach to Blues is all your own! Don't anybody miss this!

If you are, as I believe you are, ridiculing "rational wiki" I applaud you Mr_Green_Genes. "Rational Wiki" represents an immovable, dogmatic, totalitarian aspect of science that is authoritarian to the point of corruption that "science" is prone to perpetrating all too often. I detest "Wikipedia" and this manifestation of editorializing and its rigidifying of thought. To me it represents the uglier side of science which is pseudo-science itself where nothing outside its solid boundaries is permitted.

This charity site (I checked, no viruses) gets money for time you spend on the page watching cat videos or whatever, and that money is donated to a cancer charity.

TVTropes is a great resource at any rate - it has helped me discover new things, it has helped me find titles of films of which I could only remember plot elements (eg my father was looking for a film about a man who had a painting that aged instead of him, through the page on "Creepy Paintings" I found it was Picture Of Dorian Grey), I've learnt about references I never got before...

The Zappa pages have really expanded! Most albums now have a separate page.

In the picture, Frank looks like he's posing for a mugshot. 8)

https://ttsreader.com/online-reader/

A free text-to-speech reader that works in your webbrowser (no installation required). It works in several languages like english, german, french and a few others. Just drag and drop the text to be heard into the big window and click the play-button. The quality of the reading is relative good considering, it is only a machine.
Since i got too lazy to read by myself i prefer this kind of solution 8)

No it's that time of year when the AIVD Christmas puzzle is unleashed into the world, and it's completely awesome and all and really very difficult. Most of the questions relate to cryptography. So for that I can really use that tool.
