The Groove Online: The (Useless) World Wide Web

Nothing is more abundant on the World Wide Web than absolutely useless websites. The kind of websites that make you wonder why on Earth someone would pay good money to make sure they stay up. Nevertheless, they are entertaining, if anything at all. Here are a few of my favorites. Headphones are advised for some of them.

1. http://www.sanger.dk/. Everyone needs a little puppy love every once in a while. Enjoy having a dog lick your screen clean while you awe at its cuteness.

2. http://corndogoncorndog.com/. Sometimes, you just need a corn dog or two in your life.

3. http://giantbatfarts.com/. If anyone finds out why this website exists, please email me as soon as possible.

4. http://www.nullingthevoid.com/. Nulling the void does exactly what the title says it will; it floats little pictures of meteors (?) all over your webpage, just to make sure you don’t go into the void.

5. http://iloveyoulikeafatladylovesapples.com/. Help a fat lady love her apples. This is pretty much the definition of a useless website.

6. http://www.haneke.net/. This one is actually a lot more useful than a lot of the others on here, if you have the patience and the spare time. Try and track one ball through the entire webpage, and try not to go insane while you do so.

7. http://www.wutdafuk.com/. A website that – in my personal opinion- would work better as a gif, “wutdafuk” clearly conveys your expression through pop art and glitter.

7B: http://www.nelson-haha.com/. Another gif-able website for all you Simpsons lovers.

8. http://intotime.com/. pretty color gradients.

9. These websites are here to answer the world’s most pressing questions.

A: What is the opposite of poop?

B: Will the future be awesome?

C: Has the Large Hadron Collider destroyed the world yet?

D: Is it Christmas?

E: Is my computer on?

10. Last, but definitely not least, here’s http://www.wwwdotcom.com/.

Enjoy!

About Mariem El Tagoury

I am a graduate from German University Cairo. Reading novels is my passion and writing is my release. My guilty pleasures include fashion & playing around with my make-up kit. A couple of years back when I was introduced to the online world, back in 2007; I was quite surprised that in spite of the presence of thousands of young Egyptians who follow the online sphere daily, there wasn’t one site that represented us or our lifestyle. [Later we’d come to see the rise of the political, religion, social-elite, and foodie websites, but still the voice of the average Cairene youth was missing.] I was glad to find out that I wasn’t the only one who had the feeling of the outsider on the internet, that’s why I decided to gather a team to fill a gap & finally find our place online and give Cairo’s youth a real voice that reflects its true culture. I hope you find our site interesting with a new view of life. Besides running the magazine & editing, I write the “Sans Sugarcoating” column, pardon my french, and a couple of other stuff around here! If you want to contact me, my email is mariem.eltagoury@cairocontra.com; you can also use our contact form or email directly to admin@cairocontra.com
