Fun websites

I'm always on the lookout for fun websites that are updated regularly (ie: they offer continual entertainment, not just for one visit).

I like http://www.imdb.com and http://www.obscurestore.com

What other, regularly updated, not photo or computer-related, sites do you visit frequently for the pure joy of reading?

Anyone who is a Tolkien or LOTR movie fan would like theonering.net

and...
While, it's not "updated regularly"...if you like games...have a go at this putt-putt golf Flash site! I saw it over on another board and could not stop playing until I got a very low score! (35)

I'm glad you enjoyed the link, Mike Slocombe started the site a few years ago and its now one of the busiest in the UK and delightfully free of ads like RetouchPro. Its based on a suburb of London called Brixton which he seems to like but not my choice. Theres a couple of the boards cover computers and graphics but very broad based with a rather frequent use of colourful language!
Look out for the 'Rave dancers'.

Greg I hope Mr Insult made his thoughts known to you !!!

I'm still struggling with the bubblewrap game !!!

Gotta be www.howstuffworks.com for trivia and factoids. I love that stuff.

Well, I'm into mindless childish entertainment too, so...

The creator of this, Andy Foulds, has provided me with hours of amusement. Every once in a while, he adds a new one...

The Dancing Blair is my favorite (button is at the bottom of the page).
