Love Marmite
Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia, defines marmite as “a British savoury spread made from yeast extract, a by-product of beer brewing. It is a sticky, dark brown paste with a distinctive, powerful taste that polarises consumer opinion and prompts its advertising slogan that you either love it or hate it.” Unilever Bestfoods, a major UK supplier of Marmite, maintains two websites: Love Marmite and Hate Marmite; check them out for lots of laughs.

City Museum
Even if you aren’t planning a trip to Saint Louis (MO) anytime soon, you will find the descriptions and photos of the attractions at this unusual museum interesting. There are caves built within a historic shoe factory's spiral conveyor tunnel system, a circus cabaret show, and The Museum of Mirth, Mystery and Mayhem. Don't miss the photo of the world's largest pair of men's briefs.

FOUND Magazine
This website showcases photos of “found stuff” from FOUND Magazine. It all started when “one snowy winter night in Chicago a few years back, Davy went out to his car and found a note on his windshield—a note meant for someone else, a guy named Mario.” That first find has developed into “the witty, inexhaustible, much-lauded periodical featuring an edited array of things formerly misplaced, dropped, or otherwise left behind by others.” Examples of the items are “love letters, birthday cards, kids’ homework, to-do lists, ticket stubs, poetry on napkins, doodles—anything that gives a glimpse into someone else’s life.”

This site lets you search through the best webcams of the world in real time and set up your own “dashboard” to view up to 15 webcams simultaneously. You can select the speed refresh of the images in the monitor and watch it using your customized dashboard or with one click go to the official website to view just one webcam.
