and what they had to say about us (if anything).
|Finally, continuing our long-standing tradition of pointing out the pointless, we introduce the simply (yet aptly) titled Useless Information. Of course, we realize that the word "useless" is highly subjective, and this nice site proves the point. For example, you can learn about David Rice Atchison (the real twelfth President of the United States), read the amazing tale of the Michael Malloy Murder Trust, understand the real value of Vaseline, and find out why chickens wear contact lenses, among other things. Useless? Useful? Up to you: take your pick(s).|
|Who says that useless information isn't fun information? If you're the curious type and have a few minutes to spare, visit the Useless Information Home Page. Here you'll find tidbits about everything from self-propelling rocks to the history of Vaseline. Additional links and references are provided for each fun fact.|
||Anecdotes, trivia and forgotten history don't sound useless at all! Stuff you never needed to know, but which your life would be incomplete without is the webmaster's fair description. Topics covered in one edition include the history of condoms, Mount Pelee, and ill-fated US President James Garfield.|
||Those wanting purely useless trivia and information should visit the Useless Information site. It includes such gems as the invention patented by actress Hedy Lamarr – frequency hopping for torpedo control to prevent an enemy from jamming control signals.|
|It's late at night. You've had a hard day surfing the net. Okay, you've had a day of surfing the net. Now it's time for some activity of the lighter side. No, I don't mean light bulbs or feather pillows. Today's site is enough for all of us to have some fun with. It is called Useless Information. To coin a phrase of Forest Gump, "Useless is as useless does". The data on this site is of such a wide variety it is hard to put under a single subject. What is interesting to one person someone else will probably care less about? Where else could you learn about Hedy Lamarr, 1940's movie star, patenting an invention that would be the foundation for modern day missile guidance systems? Find out about the term of President David Rice Atchison, and the unique place where he spent his entire term of office. (Hint: it wasn't the White House). Learn about the day that Niagara Falls quit falling, and find out about the many uses of Vaseline. These are just a few of the Ripley-esque type of articles that are on this site. All of them are true, and all are vveeerrrryyyy interesting. Enjoy your stop.|
|Did you know that the U.S. had another President in office between the terms of James Polk and Zachary Taylor? Or that salesmen originally tried to sell people on drinking homogenized milk by showing them jars of vomit? Or did you know that wearing a bra can potentially kill you (maybe)? Well, you would if you had stopped by tonite's site. It's a collection of did-you-know stories, which kind of reminded us of Paul Harvey's "The Rest of the Story". Actually, the creators of this site have come up with some pretty intriguing stuff. None of it will really do any good (hence the title), but you may impress your co-workers with an interesting factoid.|
