EmailAlibi.com http://www.emailalibi.com

EmailAlibi.com offers a free service called delayed emails. Suppose you were supposed to meet John or Jane Doe for lunch but want to beg off because you simple can't bear to hear them sucking their roast beef through their yellow teeth (or something like that). This service will send the offensive ones three emails from you, sent on a delayed basis so that while you emails are being sent (making it look like you really were stuck at the office) you can actually go out and feast with your real friends.

ElvisFind http://www.elvisfind.com

Can't get enough of the late one? (We don't mean to imply he is dead; he's just prone to being late is all.) ElvisFind is a rather nifty search engine and site directory that deals with everything Elvis related. The site also features in-depth reviews of the sites and don't forget to drop by the "ElvisFind Score" page where you can vote for your most popular Elvis site.

Save John Stossel http://www.savejohnstossel.com

John Stossel is a reporter who, according to this site "has raised the dander of many with his unique ability to debunk conventional wisdom and expose special interests, politicians, and politically correct causes." In other words, he is known for bending the truth and manufacturing consent. Some people are called paranoid when they take offense to articles written about them. In Stossel's case the moments of quiet reflection are quite justified.

Language of the Land http://lcweb.loc.gov/exhibits/land

There are few countries in the world that can lay claim to as many regional styles of literature as those found in the United States. The Library of Congress has put together a site the explores the main authors from the various regions. Subtitled Journeys Into Literary America, each region contains a glimpse of the area along with a simple yet compelling photograph or drawing. Strangely enough it is worth it just for the photos alone.

Hair-Styles.org http://www.hair-styles.org

We learn here that "wanting a new hair style every few weeks is not fickle, it is merely evidence of being multidimensional." So there. They will also help you pick out the best hair style for your type, and impart various other truths along the way on topics such as will hair only grow so long before it comes to a dead stop and summer hair care tips.
