It's not all about sports, i promise. It is, however, one of the best uses of hypertext for storytelling i've seen in a long, long time. I don't want to spoil it, so go read it for yourself!

Bill Wurtz's home page is wonderfully... not minimalist, but very bare-bones. It's got all sorts of hidden nooks and crannies; the anagrams page is a personal favourite.

A delightful and objective categorisation of carbohydrate-based foods. We can finally be sure that a hot dog is, in fact, a sandwich, although this also requires accepting that pork pies are a calzone.

You may be disappointed that it doesn't literally play every noise at once. But it's a fascinating data-driven look at how music is categorised, and incidentally a pretty good tool for discovering new artists!

Random Youtube videos with under 100 views; a fascinating glimpse into things that might never have been meant to be seen. (Also, a lot of foreign pop music.)

Pluto was beautiful. Pluto was there when you needed it. And then one day, it wasn't anymore. I'm linking to an archived version here, but the original will never be forgotten.

You've probably already heard of this if you've spent any length of time on the Internet, but it's still great. A giant compendium of horror, sci-fi, and just plain weird tales and documents that'd take you years to read in its entirety.

The ways we've come up with to communicate the danger posed by radioactive waste to future generations fascinate me to no end. Land art and green cats are just some of the interesting ones!

Wikipedia can be considered living proof that humans are, fundamentally, nice. The fact that we've managed to keep an online encyclopædia running (ad-free, even!) for twenty years without it completely burning to the ground is really one of our greatest achievements, right up there alongside fire, electricity, and that time people raised 350 000 USD for charity purely to spite Graham Linehan.
