Alf's Useless Stuff on the Web

THERE is an amazing amount of useless stuff out there in Webland. Here are a bunch of sites that represent the majesty that is The Web. (I'm not sure this is exactly what the Defense Department's Advanced Research Projects Agency had in mind when it created the Internet.)

The Useless Pages at Go2net provide a wide-ranging archive of time-wasting and stupid stuff of every sort. Check there frequently for dumbfounding updates!

Important research: In 1995 George Goble experimented at Purdue university trying to find the fastest way to light a BBQ. This video shows the fastest way, pouring 3 gallons of liquid oxygen over a grill with 60 pounds of coal and a lighted cigarette. In the second part of the video this method is used on a 2.88$ discount grill. Most of it vaporizes(!) in the process.
