Like that "Check...and Doublecheck" game in Highlights Magazine, but for grown-ups.

The Daily Diff is a timed spot-the-differences puzzle based on public photo submissions. There's a new photo every day. For those of you who remember Highlights for Children magazine, it's basically Check...And Doublecheck for grownups.

?????????? is a community weblog whose purpose etc.

Wikitrivia.net makes trivia questions out of Wikipedia pages. It's a bit rough around the edges, but it does pretty well for not having a magic AI that understands English. Hit reload if you get a question you don't like, or grab the source code if you think you can make it better.

Mental Floss: Trivia, Quizzes, Facts, and other Time Wasters

For those of us who can't get enough useless (and useful) information, there is Mental Floss. Take the "Color" movies quiz. Find out how Hornando Cortés and his 600 Spaniards subdued 5 million Aztec natives. Remember back to when President Nixon tried to fancy up the outfits worn by White House guards. Had enough? No? OK. Worried about birds exploding from eating wedding rice? Want to know what furfuraceous means? Scroll around this page to find out what Maya Angelou, Marilyn Monroe and Andrew Lloyd Webber were all affected by; what's up with green magazine covers; and why barber shops (as opposed to other places of business) spawned vocal groups? All this and much more! Now, you too can say, "I know more than my friends!"

Metafilter is a dense shrubbery.

Can't see the forest for the trees? This mildly interesting java app generates a graphical representation the structure of a website's html coding.

Friday Timewaster

Have you ever pondered just how annoying Mick Hucknall is? and who you might consider to be more annoying than the Simply Red Frontman? Here's a chance to let off some steam with some bar room style rants about the most irritating celebs doing the circuit. There are some fairly obvious one's here and here and some threads that don't do much for Anglo-American relations here. A nice way to waste a Friday afternoon - provided you're not offended by the language

Sorry to post a shockwave.com link, but Groove Blender 2 has eaten away almost my whole morning. Drag and drop blocks onto the canvas to create your own grooves- the downloadable version includes many more beats and the option to export your groove, or save it to Shockwaves servers. Anyone know of something else this simple that is simlar but allows you to import others grooves?
