What are your favorite non-political websites (vanity)
The Interwebz | 3 March 2010 | Notary Sojac

Posted on 03/03/2010 9:41:42 AM PST by Notary Sojac

I can't focus on Obamacare, Iran, Wall Street bailouts, Democrat fiendishness and GOP wussiness 24-7; my brain would simply explode.

So I have other places I like to surf to from time to time. and I'd like to get suggestions from other Freepers.

Please post your favorites...if possible steer clear of hot button issues we see here on FR all the time (gun rights, abortion, immigration etc).

Here are some of my top sites:

Shorpy
If you have even a moderate interest in American history, you'll love this. Historic photos from the Civil War through the 1950's in stunning high resolution.

The Old Car Manual Project
If you are a car buff, and click this link, your productivity for the rest of the day will flatline. Don't say I didn't warn you!

McSweeney's
This is IMO the funniest writing on the internet today. Great parodies, some a little political, but mostly poking fun at 21st century "intellectual" culture.

Lifehacker
You may already know about this one. Great tips on how to optimize your computer, your laundry bin, and your retirement plan. If you want to start going Galt and reduce your Obama economy footprint, there are hundreds of spending-reduction suggestions to be found here.

Wondermark
My favorite webcomic. Mostly just plain funny, but about once a month, he comes through with a strip that really speaks to the Freeper worldview.

I’m a bit of a Facebook junkie and also enjoy YouTubing for various videos like those from Davids farm.

I love Shorpy and Lifehacker.

I also like gadgets:

http://www.gizmodo.com

I love watching the libs over there on the Gawker blogs deal with not being able to post anymore envirotard crap due to the overwhelming number of comments about ClimateGate.

http://www.downloadsquad.com is a pretty decent blog for software news.

My favorite place to watch the globalwarmists slowly crack up is BoingBoing. The admins have totally drunk the Gore koolaid but every time they post an AGW article now, the responders (including me) rip it to bits.

Radiolovers.com has hundreds of radio programs from the 40s and early 50s. It’s a great place to relax and let your imagination run free.

I was hitting snopes.com in the early 90’s. Also, I used to post to a couple of bulletin boards like snpp.com in my pre internet daze. (I no longer watch the simpsons) I used to make travel reservations in sabre before they upgraded their system to only allow travel agents, but my fave travel site was travelweb.com. I love old sites that have been around a long time.

Liberal Internet Gestapo hunters are looking for where people feel safe in order to infiltrate, dominate and subjugate.

I have many different forums I post at, and almost all have some form of troll that uses obvious dialogue to disrupt or to use the forum for liberal propaganda.

Schools and internet is the battlefield.

I can't double-check my links on this computer because of the firewall.

My favorite non-political sites:
Spacedaily.com
Space.com
Austen.com
Gutenberg.org
Audible.com

The first two are self explanatory. Austen.com is a place for really great Jane Austen fan fiction.
The Gutenberg Project has a 100,000+ free eBooks.
Audible has 70K + audio books.

My favorite day dreaming site - looking for islands to buy.

We should all pool our money and buy an island -- FReeper Island. < :)

FReepers used to have a *virtual* island, but this one would be real.
