Fun Friday!

I found some interesting websites this week....kind of weird ones...

You know what you believe in, right? Well, if you've ever wondered what religion most closely matches your beliefs, you may want to check out the Belief-o-Matic. (I am supposed to be an Orthodox Quaker, apparently....who knew???)

When you're sick, do you ever wonder if you've "caught that bug that's going around"? Ever wonder how many other people nearby also called in sick that day? Or are you just sick and stuck at home, bored? Check out Who Is Sick.

Are you one of those people who likes to make up words? Then check out Verbotomy. Every day there is a new challenge, where you read the definition and create a verb for it. Or, browse the archives of made-up words that aren't in the dictionary, but probably should be.

Ok, I don't know how to describe this music site, but it's one part online radio station, one part Pandora (which is also a cool site, btw). Only you can tell it what kind of mood you're in, and it will play appropriate songs. Did I mention you can limit it to decade? Or genre? Or that every song has a direct link to Amazon, in case you want to buy the album? Or that the site is free and full of pretty colors??? You don't even have to do one of those stupid registrations for username/passwords!! It's wicked cool! I love Musicovery!!!! (As I am typing this, I am enjoying Prince's "1999".)

Last but not least....I was tempted to devote an entire blog post just to this site, because I bet all of your comments will be discussing this one:

Do you have a young, virginal daughter you'd like to marry off to the highest bidder, preferably before she discovers high school boys? Then you need to submit her profile and price on Marry Our Daughter. I wish I were kidding, folks, but I think this site is legit. There are some effed up people out there, huh? Make sure you read the "testimonials" -- they are SO wrong.... [Note: This site has server problems, I think. Just hit your refresh button until the site pops up.]

Have a great weekend, everyone!!!

I tried the music site, but was over it as soon as a Ricky Martin song popped up on the "Dark" mood setting.

Who says you can't put a price tag on love?

TGIF!

FRIGGA said...

Quite an interesting mix... Of course they got my religion so completely wrong it was funny though! :-0 I'll leave that last one alone.
Happy Friday!

lol, that site was hilarious. It was actually profiled on reddit, and was called out to be a gag. It sure made me think twice about the crazies out there!

So you're an Orthodox Quaker! By any coincidence do you like oatmeal?

By any coincidence do you like oatmeal?

I did ask myself this question, too.

I did one of those religious tests once..and it said that I should be a Reform Jew. Very thought-provoking questions it asks...

RWA said...

Damn.

I actually went and looked at it - and I thought it was real.

That "Marry my Daughter" site is seriously some of the most effed up S*&T I have ever seen. Those temstimonials were almost funny. I felt bad for laughing. I really hope that site is not legit.

i did look it up on snopes, and they have not made the official "hoax" vote yet. but yes, it's probably not real. thank goodness.

so no takers on musicovery?? it's my new favorite thing!
