The whole point of this blog is to share strange and possibly useful things I find on the Internet. Here’s some recent stuff (not sure where I found all of these):

1. All About Japan
This is a slightly newer version of a site I found a long time ago. Here you can find good explanations of Japanese customs, language, food, and — of course — Kleenex.

2. The Complete Guide to Becoming a Nudist
In case you really wanted to. The operative parameter here is the writer is from Australia, seemingly in a place somewhat warmer than Chicago. I can’t imagine even walking around my appartment naked — too frigging cold, for one thing! I think I already had my share of naked people in art school.

3. Fictional Freeways
If you’re on the road so much you have fantasies about the ideal highway, you may need to cut down on your travelling somewhat.

4. Go Ask Alice
Ask Alice about health, fitness, sexuality, drugs, nutrition, and whether you can eat those leftovers you forgot to put away.

5. Jennifer Government: Nation Sates

Jennifer Government: NationStates is a nation simulation game. You create your own country, fashioned after your own political ideals, and care for its people. Either that or you deliberately torture them. It’s really up to you.

It’s like Exalted without the cool combo moves. (This one’s from Weblog Wannabe.)
