Here are some amazing random cool stuff that I found on the internet this week - just click and enjoy
Thanks for reading!
1. Oddee - Love weird stuff? Then you need to check out Oddee , one of the web's larges and most popular blogs featuring the craziest, strangest and most bizarre content you probably won't find anywhere else. Most posts are numbered lists, complete with lots of photos and videos for you to look at. Categories include art, signs, places, objects, ads, science, medicine, home design, names, people, gifts, stories, tech and more.
2. The Oatmeal - Created by Matthew Inman a.k.a. “The Oatmeal,” his popular humor website caters to the avid comic lover and quiz taker. His wacky drawings are mainly based on relatable life situations, education, and crazy stories that would never be possible in real life. Some of the jokes might seem rude to certain folks, but the average, laidback internet user can probably get a great kick out of them.
3. Vsauce - Vsauce is an incredibly popular and successful YouTube channel (with several spinoff channels) that has attracted over 13 million subscribers. Videos focus on interesting educational content where channel creator Michael Stevens teaches viewers about all sorts of amazing topics, almost resembling a modern-day Bill Nye the Science Guy. On the Vsauce website, you can browse through and watch videos across all Vsauce channels.
4. Forgotify - Do you love finding great music via Spotify? Okay, here is the problem. Not all great artists are popular when it comes to a large database like that of Spotify and you might be missing out some of them. Forgotify is an awesome attempt to bring such great but unnoticed artists into the limelight. The next time you want to find a song that will quench your thirst for music, Forgotify will help you. To get started, it offers you a list of the best songs that have been forgotten but re-discovered by the team. The website has been endorsed by many media giants like TIME and BBC.
5. OMGFacts - Do new facts excite you a lot? You should then have a look at OMGFacts , which is a great platform to find a lot of scientific facts and recent happenings. The website has a really simple design and offers different types of content, from common features to investigative-type writings. For someone who seeks science as well as knowledge, OMGFacts is going to be the perfect space to kill boredom. In case you are interested, there is an option to submit the facts you know, so that they can enrich the collection. The facts can help you boost your knowledge as well.
