WARNING – SOME CONTENT IS OFFENSIVE.
When you take the entire global population, sit them down at their personal computers and tell them to go wild and tell each other anything, anything they want; you can be sure that all hell will break loose. With social networks asking questions like ‘what’s on your mind?’ and ‘what are you doing now?’; one is sure to hear all manner of answers but there’s no guarantee that one will like all of them. I went online in search of the most interesting, craziest, weirdest and most ridiculous websites ever created. Some are funny, some are useful and others border on evil but I trust you won’t get carried away with the darker corners of the internet.
So, you think you are smarter than everyone else? It’s in the way you figure puzzles out before anyone else does, the way your mind seems wired to find solutions and the logical manner in which you approach daily life situations that has you convinced that you are a notch above the rest on the intellectual food chain. Well, if you are in South Africa, here are the people that will tell you whether your IQ is something worth writing home about; http://www.mensa.org.za. ‘It’s not bragging if you can back it up.’ Can you?
http://www.theswizzle.com is the most useful, most practical tool I found on the internet. I think I speak for all of us when I say; we could all use a cleaner inbox. This website helps you do just that in three simple steps. You’re welcome.
I felt completely out of place in virtual space when I found this website. This blog is dedicated to an audience that has anorexic aspirations. It is like being in a horrific online version of ‘Resident Evil’ with skinny girls instead of your generic zombies. Basically, this website is the Bible for those who desire the ‘almost-non-existent’ look. Websites like http://www.prettythin.com should cause parents to review the browsing permissions on the family computer.
Hate groups are not a novelty on the internet, there is a hate group against everything you can think of. I’m sure if one looked hard enough, one would find a hate website for the very air we breathe! This one caught my attention because it is run by a so-called church. Not only that but http://www.godhatesfags.com has sister sites. According to an organisation claiming to be the Westboro Baptist Church, God hates a lot of things including Barack Obama, Muslims and the media. I was left wondering; ‘When does the Westboro Baptist Church find time for love?’
If there are levels of shade, http://www.poormichelle.com must be on the extreme level. This website gives comic, clear and graphic explanations as to why Michelle Williams is the other girl in Destiny’s Child and how circumstances just always seem to force this reality in her face.
All I can say is that if, throughout your entire online lifetime, you have not yet gone through a Chuck Norris meme phase; just you hold on, it’s coming! Chuck Norris is the action hero that beats all others combined with just one roundhouse kick! If you don’t visit http://www.chucknorrisfacts.com, you will feel his wrath through your computer screen.
You think your life is miserable? Try http://www.fmylife.com. The sole purpose of this website is to show people that it could be worse. Simply go online, read all the latest posts and slowly start to feel better as you scroll through the sad stories of human betrayal and jobs from hell.
No matter where in your life you are right now, if you are a woman, you should bookmark http://www.makers.com. It has a collection of stories of women who have been to hell, punched the devil in the face and lived to tell the tale. There are videos and a great blog to follow.
People always complain that all the news we get is bad news. Well, these journalists and media personnel only report on stories of a positive nature. It was refreshing to find such a jewel in the mud when I landed on http://www.storytellersforgood.com.
I chose these websites because I did not want WordPress to lock me out of my own blog for explicit content. The reality is that there are websites that are much more bizarre and sinister that are active on the net. It is up to us to choose wisely and not get caught up in online madness.
