Welcome to the Trivia page. This is where you start to delve into the depths of my quirky mind to see what really interests me! The page is still in its infancy but will hopefully build up over time. Please return again sometimes to see what's been added.

Comics - Over 150 comic strips and 60 editorial cartoons. If you want a laugh you can spend hours here.

Dumb - Feeling a bit dumb? Then take a look at the dumb things other people are doing. It might even brighten your day!

Fly Guy - A harmless bit of clever cartoonary. Well worth spending a while with.

FunPic - The biggest collection of cartoons and funny pictures on the Internet. Beware of the naughty ones!

FunTrivia - Trivia quizzes on every topic from Harry Potter to Particle Physics - and everything in between. If you are into answering oddball questions (and learning a few things at the same time), visit this site - but make sure that you have plenty of time on your hands as it's highly addictive.

How Stuff Works - How Stuff Works is exactly what it describes itself as: a single destination for the answer to how virtually everything works - and that means anything from jet engines, chocolate, HDTV and safe cracking to space shuttles, light sticks and Aspirin; you name it and it's probably there.

Internet Sacred Text Archive - This is the largest freely available archive of full-text books about religion, mythology, folklore and the esoteric on the Internet. The site is dedicated to religious tolerance and scholarship, and has the largest readership of any similar site on the web.

Making the Modern World - Making the Modern World brings you powerful stories about science and invention from the eighteenth century to the modern day. It explains the development and the global spread of modern industrial society and its effects on all our lives.

Totally Absurd Inventions - Features the funnier side of the inventive spirit by exploring actual USA patented products. Truly weird and wacky and well worth browsing through.

Wikiquote - A free online compendium of quotations in every language, including sources (where known), translations of non-English quotes, and links to Wikipedia. Some of my favourite quotations (at present) are:

Lao Tzu - "He who knows does not speak; he who speaks does not know."

Bob Dylan - "Take care of all your memories. For you cannot relive them."

Homer Simpson (to Bart) - "Son, when you participate in sporting events, it's not whether you win or lose: it's how drunk you get."

Blackadder (to Baldrick) - "Your head is as empty as a eunuch's underpants."

World Wide Words - A fascinating site dedicated to the origin, meaning and usage (or misusage) of words in the English language. If you have ever wondered what a 'Termamgant' is or queried where 'Honeyfuggle' comes from, or even asked yourself when the expression to be 'On one's Tod' was first used, then this is the place for you.

 

Don't forget, if you have a site that you feel will fit onto this page then please email me and I'll try to include it in the next update.
