B00TY POST II

First there was the booty post and now, a simple update. Dedicated to the big fish. They were fun to catch while it lasted. If you enjoy random, you may just enjoy this post.
There are kittens AND vikings! There is the weird , the nerdy and the pointless!
Take your time. The cake is not a lie. The flowers are real , and the flutterbyes too. If you are not sold there is also 2 bear attacks and the stars themselves! From the amusing, to a simple Learn to type fast program I am sure you will find something useful or at least distracting!



Project tools

This is to help those of you using an online office. Things have really come a long way with very powerful project creation tools being created. Other tools are more specialised for graphs/presentations, or surveys and polls. Sometimes you may need to know the time any where in the world, to shorten your internet links or even need just to convert between money and measurement systems. These let you save websites as fully functional PDF files- Option 1, option2, And this can Save certain online movies. Others are not quite so serious with audio postcard creator, sign picture generator, text pictures maker, 3d text modelmaker, Prank caller the official seal creator, and always handy tourist remover! A very handy photography tool!

If you need somewhere online to store files and then send? Try these1, 2, 3, 4, 5,
If you need serious Geek tools try these.


Online surfing

Your IP
This is just lists all the google features on one page, while this shows you the search strings.
This is an upgraded calendar while this is an attempt at a custom desktop. Do you use Gmail? Being able to add notes to webpages, is very handy for you to keep track of your favourites! And online highlighting, makes it easier for other people to skip to good bit of a link you post. This is a very handy map that tracks realtime news events. One heck of an interesting geography lesson!!
Have you used torrents before? Well you use them with a torrent client and they let you find almost anything on the net easily, just type its name into google and add the word torrent to the search. As with everything there is legal torrents and not legal ones. This lets you share logins for places that normally make you go through long boring registrations.
If what you needed was not in there, it may be in this list of internet programs.

Security

Sometimes its best to test different passwords before you use them. For getting around computers that block facebook this can work. To protect from hackers and tools to track spammers. Keep your eyes open.

Science

The biology news network and some pictures of blobs! Ancient greek cities.... the tree of life?learn latin or about virtual water and humans on a cell level. Or see movies about cells and their inner workings! Never forget citizen, YOU too are an animal And the animals are wiping out. Cell by cell and species by species.
If you didn't scratch your science itch yet, try this.

Last up is some videos!

You can find hundreds of good documentary here and here. There is also the Zeitgeist movies and I think the second one of them says a lot of interesting things about our economy. Another good movie about money is this one.
We are a people in danger, and while we ARE making progress on many problems.. as the guru Chris explains the problems are still the same. The same age old problems that EVERYONE can see but that are never fixed. Now this may be the most boring 8 part series on the internet.
But if everyone on the planet watched it, it would wake everyone up to what exactly having so many humans on earth means to us all. Consider using either this or this alarm clock to wake up from the parts, it does get very interesting around part 5.
We have a long way to go as a species, and we will have to learn we are a very small part of a very large universe. That and we need to look out for bears.

If you need a quick game after that epic quest these 150 online games are waiting. I reccomend dino-run, Dolphin Olympics2, ZWOK, Flow, and gemcraft.

If you stumbled in, and enjoyed a thumbs up would be awesome!
PS if you want to take it with you, you could always just put the pages address into this.
