About This Particular Web Site

by Paul Fatula,

Many online stores prompt you, when “checking out,” to enter a coupon code to get a discount on your purchase. If you’re anything like me, you haven’t got one. But wouldn’t it be nice to get a free widget or a 10 percent discount or free shipping on your order? On DealSearch, you can type in the name of the site you’re shopping on and see a list of coupon codes for that store. (Sometimes they’re expired, but it doesn’t hurt to go through the list and try.)

Mad Ape Den

If you are one who can not yet jot too big (or if you do not yen to), the Mad Ape Den may be for you! Or if you are a fan of our one- or two- or (one and two)-bit rap, go and see all we can say in the new wee way. And do say hi to us all as you go in.

There are lots of places online for hosting images, but somehow Antishift feels more like a community than most of the others. Perhaps because it’s fairly small. Hopefully, the torrent of new users that will result from my mentioning the site here won’t change that. In addition to hosting pictures, the site lets you post log entries, and track favorite users, archives, and images.

Forthright’s Phrontistery

This site offers a series of word lists specializing in rare or obscure words which have all but vanished from not just the English language, but also the Internet itself. Words are listed in categories such as Bearing and Carrying Terms and the new Euphemisms for Death and Dying. Scrabble players and visitors to the Mad Ape Den alike will appreciate the site’s list of two- and three-letter Scrabble words.

Paul Really Is Dead

No, friends, I have not left you just yet. This site, which is about a different, possibly more famous Paul, offers undeniable photographic (and other!) proof that Paul McCartney was replaced with a look-alike in 1966. The site also attempts to explain how all the people involved in this scheme were induced to keep quiet about it, and why so much trouble was taken to cover up the real Paul McCartney’s death. The site’s theme song, Uberkinder’s Badwrong FalsePaul, is definitely worth a listen.
