What 2 sites do you find most useful

Aside from StraightDope.com and search sites (Google, et al), which sites do you find you keep going back to time and again for things other than entertainment…

I use MapQuest and my family’s home page the most.

dictionary.com (has a thesaurus and translator too.)
excite.com (for news and tv listings)

LA Times It’s set as my home page (my start page). Always something interesting there.
eBay (Hey, I’m always buying or selling stuff.)
Internet Movie Database
Stedman’s (I’m studying medical transcription.)
Amazon.com I go there every damned day, so it seems. Even if it’s just to look up books or read customer reviews. I am addicted to Amazon.com!
Wet Canvas I check out Wet Canvas pretty regularly–it’s a nice art site.
Netflix I have a movie queue that is really way too long. I change the order around constantly.

And there’s more. But that’s a starter.

Yeah! Amazon’s gonna be the bankruptcy of me! :frowning:
