As a professional remover of horse manure for various and sundry Northern Michigan parades I find myself in posession of a regrettable excess of spare time during the cold winters. The internet provides somewhat of a diversion, and as even the most stalwart of men's men will eventually tire of adult themed sites I find myself inevitably wandering the web in search of something with a bit more intellectual substance. Unfortunately, there is a great deal of nonsense on the internet, skillfully interlinked with fiction, and withfiction masquerading as fact. Another difficulty is that of the mind numbingly huge amount of information on the internet. During any period of boredom, most people would rather occupy their minds with something interesting or fun. So the mind runs a search on the words interesting and fun and finds itself unable to think of anything really productive. Fortunately, Google is rather faster and more reliable than the average human mind, and I have found it useful to skip the intervening steps and search for interesting and fun things directly on Google, saving the mind unnecessary wear and tear. A search on the word interesting yeilded the site DamnInteresting.com and I have found that it fully lives up to its' name. I would even say that a full 50% of the articles contained therein merit the descriptor facscinating, and that word is not one I bandy lightly. The site is full of little known historical events, unsolved mysteries, odd disorders, earth-shaking scientific theories, and curious anecdotes. An example is that of a historian who claims that a large chunk of the middle ages was fabricated, and that this is really the eighteenth century. The editor does not really give much credibility to this claim though, and at the bottom of each article are found links to further explore the content.This site is just good fun, and I wholeheartedly recommend it.
