A few of my favorite sites.
For Pet Owners a Must Read:
www.entirelypets.com/toxicfoods.html - this site will tell you all things toxic for your pets. Some will surprise you, like did you know a grape or raisin can kill your dog?
Check to see if something on the Internet is true or not:
www.truthorfiction.com/ - You know all those e-mails that spread like wildfire but seem a bit too unbelievable?! ie; 'a special new spider that waits to attack you from underneath toilet seats'... or 'watch out for needles on gas pump handles'! Well this site will clue you in as to whether they are Truth or Fiction. I always go there now before forwarding any email to friends that way none of us look foolish :)
www.gardenersnet.com/ - Another must-log-onto site for gardeners. Any query you may have can most likely be answered here.
imdb.com/ - Okay how many times have you been chatting w/someone and either you or they are trying to remember; the name of an actor, what movie they were in, who directed a picture, or even who did the soundtrack. This site will instantaneously answer all those questions and more. Also a great cheat site to prepare for an upcoming game of Scene It!!

Food writer Kevin Shalin, AKA The Mighty Rib, was attempting a Man vs Food challenge to chow down on HUNDREDS of the buttery Cheddar Bay Biscuits at Red Lobster.
He ate a whopping 413 biscuits before being rushed to a hospital in Little Rock, Arkansas, after complaining that he felt dizzy.
A guest to the restaurant told the Daily Star, "After about 30 I see him over asking the manager what was the record for most biscuits ate...He just came back and said 'I think I can do 415', and started really digging in."
Doctors says that Shalin had two GALLONS of butter drained from his body which led to him falling to the floor in convulsions after his 413th biscuit.
