The Most Useless Websites on the Web


By web gangsta | Published:

There’s a lot of stupid on the Internet.

You know, it.  We know it.

The goal is to try to avoid those websites at all costs.  There’s never anything good to be found there, in the bowels of Internet Stupidity.

Facebook vs the World: Tracking Your Friendships around the Globe


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch has traveled all over the world and has made tons of friends.

We could call up folks from Hong Kong to Morocco, and places in-between using that old-fashioned telephone thingie.

Sure, we could use Facebook to reach out to all our friends, but why do something that impersonal when you can reach out and touch someone with a phone call?

What’s your Secret Service code name?


By web gangsta | Published:

Everybody has a nickname.

And as Howard learned on THE BIG BANG THEORY, nicknames are usually assigned to you rather than something that you come up with yourself.  His nickname, if you hadn’t heard, is “Froot Loop”.

How fast can you read?


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch wouldn’t be able to cover as many websites as we do without being able to read quickly and comprehend what we’re poking our heads into.

Reading fast is one thing; knowing what we just read about is something else entirely.

But the question can come up as you outpace your friends and family in reading the BIG BANG THEORY VANITY CARDS before they’re off the screen as to exactly HOW FAST CAN YOU READ?

How far can I walk in 2 hours?


By web gangsta | Published:

Have you ever had a free weekend where you just wanted to head out of town — anywhere — and didn’t have any more solid plan other than “what can we see within a 2-hour drive from here?”

Or asked the same question about how far you could walk or bicycle in a certain timeframe?

Well, worry no more – Web Watch has found a site for you.

How big is the universe?


By web gangsta | Published:

Do you remember a few years ago when Web Watch showed you a REAL-WORLD COMPARISON OF GERM SIZES?

You were able to zoom in from the size of a sheet of paper down to the size of a carbon atom.  Along the way, you could see and compare the sizes of different germs when compared to common, everyday objects.

Yeah, not too shabby, and kinda cool.

But what if we wanted to take the same concept, and compare the sizes of pretty much everything in the entire universe to, well, the entire universe?

What’s your Doggelganger? Find out using the human-to-canine pairing software

Adopt a Dog
Adopt a Dog

You know you want one.  Everybody does.

And you know the best way to get a dog is to adopt an unwanted or abandoned puppy from an animal shelter rather than to go to a breeder and pay more money than necessary.  Of course, if purebreds are your thing – then go for it, but if you listen to Bob Barker’s (and now Drew Carey’s) spiel at the end of every episode of THE PRICE IS RIGHT, you know that going to a shelter will give you the warm fuzzies – both literally and figuratively.

If you’ve been wondering what Web Watch’s next tweet would be, we can tell you that — at the time of this writing — it was most likely going to be something like one of the following:

  • Compared to Find out these apply to keep their STD Awareness Month says: OK GO’s Damian Kulash on
  • The Football Fan’s Guide to Roustabout says: The Platypus Song Christmas Trends to Get Ahead in 16!
  • Seven must-have kitchen gadgets, and you HAVE to Mouseworks to dislike Lady Gaga? Gays.
  • The 15 Biggest Box Office Holiday Party says: Ever wonder what the day: Sexy People!
  • Famous people would you really LOVE your money on when you bring with your farts says: How!
  • Connecticut tops the day: Sexy People! says: The 50 Types of 2010 says: One way to enjoy bicycling!

How did we know? Continue reading LET’S GO META: “THAT CAN BE MY NEXT TWEET” IS, IN FACT, MY NEXT TWEET. WHOA!

Fun with mugshots: Guess the Crime

Murder by Death
Murder by Death

Let’s face it. Mugshots are fun.

There’s a little schadenfreude with it as well, knowing that the person staring back at you from the mugshot gallery has allegedly done something wrong, and you haven’t.

And if Nick Nolte or other celebrity mugshots have proven anything, it’s just that some people make pretty funny police fodder. Continue reading FUN WITH MUGSHOTS: GUESS THE CRIME

Last year, Web Watch told you about GEMCRAFT CHAPTER 0, one of the better, more involved games in the Tower Defense genre of computer games.

Achievement Unlocked

While we know that Web Watch proclaimed that THIS IS THE ONLY LEVEL TOO was a sequel to the hit Flash platformer ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED – we admit that we weren’t really being extremely honest with you, the Web Watch reader.

Oh, it was a worthy game in the Achievement Unlocked pantheon, but it wasn’t a sequel in the true sense of the word.

So Web Watch is here with an apology, and a make-good link for you: Continue reading FLASH FUN: ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED 2 (TIME TO KILL MORE ELEPHANTS!)
