The Best of TIME WASTERS on the Internet

Useless Information Page

Steve Silverman seems to have too much time on his hands. This science teacher who lives near Albany, New York has spent several years putting together a collection of pages he calls "Useless Information - Stuff you never needed to know but your life would be incomplete without." Actually, it's a fascinating journey through history, science and trivia that has attracted thousands of readers and won a boatload of awards.

How Much Inside?

How many square feet of floor space can be covered by your basic bag of Doritos Nacho chips? How much foam is really inside those cans of expanding foam? And exactly how much white sugary goo is there in a 20-ounce package of Oreo cookies? Rob Cockerham, creator of the Cockeyed Laboratory, has answers to these and other questions that have troubled humankind for days.

Worst of the Web

Each weekday, your guides Buzz, Melvin and Chip feature a really awful site, and tell you why it stinks. You can even vote on how bad the featured site is each day! A word of caution... if you are easily offended, you may want to skip this site. On the other hand, if you have an off-beat sense of humor and can tolerate the occasional rude, crude or politically incorrect remark, you'll enjoy this site.
