    Every once in a while I run into a website that is totally random but really useful. Thus, I have decided to start a list. With mass participation, we can all make the world a better place.

    www.isup.me: Ever wonder if a site is really down or if it's just you? Type it in here and the magical interwebby thing will tell you.

    www.gethuman.com: In case you've never heard of this site before, it's a list of companies and the steps necessary to navigate their phone trees.

    www.fastcustomer.com: Hate waiting on hold? This app will navigate the phone tree for you and call you back when you get a representative. Read about it here.

    Fark.com, great site that points out the ridiculous nature of today's media.

    Songza.com

    A great replacement to Pandora. Im surprise it's hasn't replaced Pandora yet (free with no ads/commercials) in terms of popularity and actually has a wider selection of music.

    www.cracked.com totally cracks me up

    http://dearblankpleaseblank.com/ I'm not exactly sure how to describe it, although the authors describe it as "reasonable requests in an unreasonable world. Typical comment: "Dear Noah, Seriously, we thought the boat left at 5pm! Yours truly, the unicorns." Or my personal favorite, "Dear Buffy, we have a new assignment for you. His name is Edward. Sincerely, anonymous."

    They're my new go-to humor sites.
