SD Surfers' Choice

What are five cool website off the beaten path that you like to frequent?

…beside this one.
I just realized my cyberspace education has been, shall I say, a bit lacking.
You’ll forgive me if I take awhile to name my five.

I could go on and on.

In history they will not fill their heads with battles, nor in geography with fortresses, for it becomes them just as little to reek of
gunpowder as it does the males to reek of musk.

Hmm… you said “off the beaten path” so I’ll leave out the usual “The Onion” and “Brunching Shuttlecocks” links and focus on some personal, non-humor favorites
http://c64.emucamp.com is the home of Lemon’s Commodore 64 game site. Lots of old favorites for hours of retro-80’s fun.
http://www.hotwired.com/cocktail/ is home of Hotwired’s cocktail site. Learn to make drinks like a pro and leave the soda, Malibu rum, and frozen fruit juice at frat parties.
http://www.seds.org/billa/tnp/ holds the mysteries of the Nine Planets site. In depth information about all our lovely solar systems has to offer. Sure, you can always hit the NASA pages, but this site is so easy to use, quick loading, and informative it’s my number one choice for celestial info.
http://www.planetside.co.uk/terragen/ is probably going to get me in trouble with the #SD folks. Doobieous showed me this easy to use and fantastic results producing terrain generator. Render near photo-realistic landscapes in minutes with only the random options from the program or create your own worlds.
http://www.watershipdown.org is me plugging my own site. If you ever read the Richard Adams novel, you might be interested in the message boards, post cards, plot dissections, discussion on lapine as a language and all sorts of other stuff you’ll find here.
