From Fita:



Although people talk about \"browsing\" the Web, most of us don\'t have time to browse when we get online; we want to find what we\'re looking for as fast as possible. That\'s a shame, though, because the Web was made for browsing. There is so much useful information online that it\'s fun to just poke around and see what surprises you can turn up. Here\'s a great site for doing that.



It\'s called What Can You Do On The World Wide Web? at it.stlawu.edu/~tdil/index1.htm, and it\'s a collection of links to sites that you\'ll find compelling. Want to buy a theater ticket? Calculate how tall your child is going to be? Ask a doctor a medical question? Find a restaurant? Learn how to write a business plan? Schedule a wake up call? Take a tutorial on how to show your wife some romance? (I flunked that one.) You\'ll find answers to all those questions and many more at this fascinating site.



Again, at: http://it.stlawu.edu/~tdil/index1.htm

It says, \"Take our free, fast and fun IQ test.\"

But the REAL fun begins when they want $10 to give you the results!



Of course, they did say the TEST was free ....



I just felt my IQ drop but not so much that I sent them the money.
