    Everyone surf the internet and now and then come across with some useful and interesting websites as well. Here is an opportunity to share those websites with others.

    here what I got :-

    [1] http://www.medlineplus.com/ => for Health information, Medical encyclopedia, Medical Directory, Medical Dictionary etc.

    [2] http://www.all4humor.com/ => for funny videos, funny pictures, funny commercials, funny animations, extreme videos, jokes and cartoons etc. (daily updates)

    I use this a lot when talking to European friends so we can easily picture house size, trip length, etc in our own measurements.

    i can give some links that are good for when you are bored.

    this is a brilliant drama, like a soap opera, i highly recommend watching the first episode and i bet you end up watching them all :D

    The Scene

    here's the first episode which you can watch in your browser, note what it says "lower res, broadband connection required"
    http://www.technutopia.com/videos/thescene/ep1.html

    to download high resolution episodes you can go here vvv
    http://www.welcometothescene.info/download.php?ep=1

    the scene is about a group of people who work together to release films on the internet before they have been released to the public - they are pirates :eek: most of the show shows them on IRC/messenger talking to each other.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    here's a very useful search engine called Podzinger just search for any keyword and podzinger will show you all the podcasts/vidcasts which have mentioned your search word. it will also include a paragraph showing how the word was used along with audio of that paragraph. you can then go to the home page of the podcast, or just listen to it on the podzinger search result page :cool:

    Podzinger uses speech recognition software to document every word that's been said in all pod/vidcasts (speech-to-text), that's why the search results are so good.

    here's a review that tells even more about it

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    here's a search i sometimes do to find things to watch. this search shows all documentaries that are over 20 minutes
