15 Awesome Websites to Bookmark
Surfing the internet is an amazing experience. The endless websites are to a web surfer what a toy store is to a kid. Some sites stand out, not only for their professionalism and appearance but for the useful information they give. Others are just plain fun. Here are a few awesome sites I've run across through the years and visit often. I hope you will want to as well.

Here's a great traffic site as well as a weather site. It offers up-to-date incident reports and road construction in your area. They have weather alerts and storm warnings. Intellicast.com also offers a trip planner to let you know about flights at your nearest airport.

This website offers observatory weather, radar maps, investing news and history, city live cams and many other wonderful things. It is a professional site with information on terrorists threat levels, where earthquakes have occurred and more. A must visit.
A government website that calls itself "your source for science you can use". And it is. Covering everything from geology to biology to geography, this site is interesting as well as informative.
6) Google Earth
At earth.google.com, you can fly anywhere on earth to view satellite imagery, maps and terrains. This well-known sight is one of the most awesome on the net.
This NASA site offers images, videos and the science of space. It includes an interactive feature where you can be part of space exploration. Very user-friendly and informational.

FARK is the destination for unusual news. It picks up stories of an unusual nature and reports it (with a bit of humorous commentary). Always good for a laugh or a grunt.
12) Playa Cofi Jukebox
Hundreds of songs celebrating our musical heritage. You can choose the genre your interested in from 1950 on. A great place to reminisce musically.
13) Optical Illusions
