Discover the Lighter Side of the Internet

Written by Jesse S. Somer

We all knowrepparttar Internet is a great tool for finding out information and sharing knowledge. But as a human sometimes sitting at a computer all day can get quite tedious, especially if it is your job 5 days a week. This feeling can be compounded by other problems in one’s personal life, andrepparttar 118179 result can mean little productivity because of a sour mood. Well humanity does have a lighter side, and this too can be explored onrepparttar 118180 Internet. Sometimes a little humor or interesting trivia can really takerepparttar 118181 edge off a bad moment. You’d be surprised at how much comedy and insight is expressed onrepparttar 118182 Net. I’ve been exploring what’s out there and I just can’t stop laughing. Laughter of course isrepparttar 118183 ultimate medicine and some believe it to berepparttar 118184 highest form of life. My only warning is don’t get hooked on this stuff as your work ethic will probably become worse than ever!

Now, there’s a lot of stuff onrepparttar 118185 Net and not all of it is positive humor, but you can surf aroundrepparttar 118186 undesirable stuff with ease. To give you an idea of some funny sites I discovered, here is a short list but I’m sure there are thousands of others you can find by doing simple word searches:,,,,,, and I really advise checking outrepparttar 118187 last site and watchingrepparttar 118188 video entitled ‘Evil penguin2’. This nearly brought tears to my eyes as I already have a soft spot for penguins.

So, you’ve got jokes, funny videos, kooky trivia, strange thoughts and perspectives on different aspects of life, and evenrepparttar 118189 most ‘powerful’ man on Earth-George Bush doing an animated dance imitating John Travolta in ‘Saturday Night Fever’. You’ve really got no reason anymore to sit in front of your computer worrying and wallowing in self-pity. I’ve always thought that humans have put too much emphasis on technological development as opposed torepparttar 118190 spiritual side of things. This comedic aspect torepparttar 118191 Internet has shown me that people can also be quite clever in more lighthearted endeavors. Some ofrepparttar 118192 ideas on these sites really fliprepparttar 118193 world upside down and make you question why we dorepparttar 118194 thingsrepparttar 118195 way we do. This could be considered a step forward in our evolution as we seerepparttar 118196 underlying truths in our cultural systems.

While I was sitting quietly in my throne room this morning at my Palace on Dallas in beautiful downtown Victoria, British Columbia, Canada (a quaint, quirky colonial outpost right smack dab onrepparttar 118180 San Andreas fault line), my mind began to wander and ponder.

Of course when you’re waiting for “big things” to happen or, ...patiently standing on one foot for your ship to arrive atrepparttar 118181 bus station, or heaven forbid ...lollygagging about because Godot hasn’t turned up yet to give you a reason for being -- something odd is bound to happen. Don’t ask me why, it just does.

Which brings me torepparttar 118182 random topic of “things that go bump inrepparttar 118183 night” (TTGBIT). Not beingrepparttar 118184 quivering or querulous sort, I decided to inquire further intorepparttar 118185 wonderful world of TTGBIT.

However, when I typed into my web browser, I landed on something called “bravepages”. Expecting to meet Robin Hood,repparttar 118186 Red Dwarf or maybe my favorite white-haired classic TV-Western film star, Hop-a-long Cassidy and his colleague “The Cisco Kid”, to my dismay I received a rather strange invitation to sign up for a free website -- not quite what I was expecting, -- but nevertheless an “awesome” experience, asrepparttar 118187 younger generation would say.

Everrepparttar 118188 inquisitive type, I now have only 42,300 websites to wade through according torepparttar 118189 folks at What a perfect project forrepparttar 118190 “Empress of Everything” to undertake instead ofrepparttar 118191 usual royal duties know, proffering pithyless proclamations, knighting every knave inrepparttar 118192 realm, or takingrepparttar 118193 wretched Corgis for a walk.

So, in case you’re wondering about some ofrepparttar 118194 stuff that popped up underrepparttar 118195 category “things that go bump inrepparttar 118196 night”, here are a few:
