General Snip-bits

b3General Snip-bits is a section that is about writing, and writing related subjects. Eventually, I hope to populate it with a range of subjects that will be of interest to anyone who loves the written word.

Currently there are only three categories which include: Interesting Articles, Date with Destiny and I Quote.  They are explained in more detail on their relative pages. If any members have any suggestions for new categories in this section, I will be only to pleased to receive them.

This will take time (excuse the pun).

dwdpng'Date with destiny' is a calendar of dates and events, with an on-line hyperlink to a website covering the subject. I have covered every day between Jan 1st--dec 31st with at least one important event, so there should be something for anyone trying to write fillers or short articles. If members would like to supply dates with relevant hyperlinks, I'll be extremely grateful for the details.

 

intartWith Interesting articles, I hope to touch on a wide range of topics that specifically deal with writing issues.  If members feel you can contribute, or would like to submit an article on a particular interest you may have, submit it and after review, It may well appear as an article here. Currently there are six articles appearing here, I hope soon there will be more.

 

quote-142-fri-1

I quote is an A - Z of memorable quotes through the ages.  But it's more than just a collection  0f quotes, I have inclided links to the source of the quotes where possible, so you can find out about the author and the origins of that particular quote.  Naturally, I hope to expand on this as time goes by, so contributions are gladly accepted.

General Snipbits - Wonderfully Weird Webs

The A to Z of

Wonderfully Weird Webs

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

We all know there are some fascinating, wacky, weird and wonderful webs around. I have selected a few which I feel would appeal to most people, but then we all have a wide variety of tastes.

 

A 

 

Admad (Ad Busters)    Cultural terrorist aiming to bring down the capitalist system.  Well you  can't knock their goals, but if their Website is any thing to go by, they have no chance.  But the spoof ads are humorous and thought provoking.

Antichrist - (Satins Rapture)  Learn the name of the Anti-Christ and his plans for world dominion here. 

 

Annoyed?   Now this one is hot.  "Our intention is annoy, disturb or bother you in  such a way that displease, troubles or irritates."  So they tell you.  If  you have any politically correct tendencies, STAY AWAY.  There is not  a taboo these guys won't violate, but saying that, it's alive with frank thoughts and highly intelligent.  Only visit if you're not easily offended.
