X-inventions: The home page of a high school kid who shows you exactly how to build pneumatic cannons, hovercraft, lockpicks, high explosives, telephone bugs and a lot of other fun stuff. Impress your friends! Be the first on your block! (Remind me to be nice to the next teenager I meet.)

Who cares about that? It's the content that matters, not the form!

I've found myself, at times, basing some of my websites (practice ones, anyway) on themes of other websites. I think that it's good to some extent, it may not bring out your creative side, but it may help you learn how to do new things.
