For entertaining things on the Internet that may not be Youtube videos.

Does anyone else read The Daily Mash? I find it hilarious. Here's one of this morning's articles: Putin bans rainbows.

The Daily Mash is fantastic.

This is a pretty cool experiment - they recorded people's mouse cursors as they command you to do different tasks, and you can join in. WARNING: NSFW - there are some nude people in the video, should make you laugh though when it gets to that bit. But don't play it at work (this means you Balla, serial GNamer at work surfer) http://donottouch.org/

I've actually seen that before!  Didn't like the music much (personal taste), but it's a clever idea.

Something I've finally got into over the past few days: the podcast, Welcome to Night Vale.  It's done in the style of a community radio station in a small American town, and while it starts off doing "clichéd creepy", the plots and ideas get more interesting throughout the podcast. (I've just listened to the Sandstorm episodes, so don't spoil the rest of them please!)

I also listen to the CVG one, which is much more pro-Nintendo than some of the forum comments might lead you to expect.

I've heard good things about Welcome to Night Vale, and I'm looking for podcasts to make the morning commute more tolerable, so I'll have to listen.

How good is your vocabulary?

Said Yes to 69% of the existing words, and yes to 0% of the nonwords- go me!

Yes to 70% of existing words and 0% of nonwords.

I guess that's conclusive proof that I'm 1% better a man than beemoh.

I got 64%. Not bad considering it took me 5 seconds to decide that disputativeness is definitely a word.

69%.  Not bad for a maths graduate - a bit disappointing for a pedant.

I'm guessing that we get different words each time, because I didn't get "disputativeness".

Probably, it'd be a pretty poor study if they only tested those 100 words. It'd make replays boring, too.

The Daily Mash often makes me spit out some of the drink I'm supping at the time of reading. Smile

I was going to make a porn related joke here, but I can't think of a way to say it without sounding horrible. It was basically about the reprehensible side of the business (the exploitation etc) and how my mind thinks none of that when I'm, y'know, enjoying myself then it all hits me afterwards.

Jim'll Paint It is fantastic. Seeing a picture from him or Chris (simpsons artist) is always amusing.

I love reading the request and seeing the genius ways he realised it in the picture. Top stuff.

This is amazing: http://www.twitch.tv/twitchplayspokemon

It's Pokemon played through Twitch chat commands. It's as hilarious as you'd expect.

EDIT: They somehow managed to catch a Rattata and named it JLVNOOOOO. Amazing.

Oh man, this is so frustrating to watch. It must be so easy to troll it. Right now I'm watching them struggle to fight a trainer because they keep selecting a fossil mid-battle and trying to run away.

Yeah, I've been watching for half an hour - all that's happened is they caught a Rattata, fought Misty and lost then spent 15 minutes trying to get to Nugget Bridge.

Here's a pictorial summary of the stream so far:
