I have some exciting new additions to the links category in the sidebar, which I'd like to bring to your attention.
First of all I added Mental_Floss a few weeks ago, and I think it's a very interesting web destination. It's full of great nuggets of geekitude, with some fun quizzes. You can easily convince yourself that it is in fact educational, and it must be helpful for your Trivial Pursuit or pub quiz scores.
I also recently discovered Questionable Content, via Cuteoverload (I don't need to link to that do I? It has to be in your favourites, and it's in the sidebar anyway), which is a web comic. I first visited on February 26, and I finished reading my way through the complete archives about a week later. This is an archive of 1362 posts, representing a new strip every weekday since 2003 and it may be addictive.
Most important of all is Brokeback Monkey, which is written by someone who I may possibly think is one of the loveliest and most talented people I know. I will warn you though, he's just started posting installments of a short story. and the prologue gave me very surreal dreams about a sinister inner city windmill. Like you do.
