Longevity Game

|
http://www.northwesternmutual.com/learning-center/the-longevity-game.aspx

On a life insurance company's website this quick set of questions tells you your life expectancy based on answers to the questions about you and your lifestyle.

Apparently I'll be gone by the time I'm 64 which probably sounds about right unfortunately...

Emotion Eric

http://www.emotioneric.com/

Titled as 'Eric conveys and emotion' and billed as 'an interactive humour-oriented website', what happens is the public can submit a request for an emotion and Eric will try and act it out for you.

Looks like he has already done a good many although it looks like the site has not been updated for a while..

WTF Questions

http://randomqs.tumblr.com/

"Quora, Yahoo Answers, Stack Exchange and all the other Q&A sites that are out there are incredibly useful things. However, they frequently have the funniest, stupidest and weirdest questions imaginable. So I thought I'd aggregate some of the oddest ones here."

this is just a random wtf picture I found on the Interwebs and thought I'd share with you...

"As has long been the case, sequels are a reliable way of making plenty of cash from recognizable names. They've been a part of the Hollywood film-making process for decades, and as this list of 95 sequels currently in the works proves, will continue to be so for as long as we stump up the cash to go and see them."

10 Charts about Sex

|
http://blog.okcupid.com/index.php/10-charts-about-sex/

<QUOTE>

It is our goal today to create graphics of similar concision and power, but about something more useful than war—sex.

All the data below, even the most personal stuff, has been gleaned from real user activity on OkCupid. Some of it our users have told us outright by answering match questions; some of it we've had to learn from observation.

Other than the unifying theme, sex, there's no big point or thesis to this post: just comparisons, correlations, and quirky trends.</QUOTE>
