I was going to add this to the long list of Dumb and Dumber but thought a new thread would be better. Post links to your favourite ludicrous website.

Please post only sites which the author is being serious (no satirical websites like Real Ultimate Power :) ).

To get the ball rolling and set the tone, check out the latest news on the world-wide reptilian conspiracy at

I am part of this conspiracy. For instance, if you look very carefully (perhaps using some kind of enhancement) at the pic of me that AR posted you will see that the badge that I am wearing has a picture of a lizard on it and the word "Reptile".

Jon Ronson's "Them: Adventures with Extremists" has some very funny stuff about David Icke and his Reptoid theories.

I haven't seen it. It seems to change around. Current there is a picture of a black dragon sitting on a rock near the sea.

They probably have a server-side include script (ssi) to pick a random image from a list of available ones. If you hit 'Reload' you can see them one after another.

In another thread someone suggests Ramadan should be banned because Muslim's are more inclined to gain, rather than lose weight. Go figure. (Perhaps we should also ban Christmas and Easter for the same reason).

Anyway, the following site is on the theme of religious diets...

www.chessvictoria.com --> 1% evil, 99% good
http://members.ozemail.com.au/~nswca/ --> 9% evil, 91% good

I read that as: you'd be slightly better off playing chess at Croydon than going to church ... and you'd be better off playing chess in Victoria than in NSW. Sorry Bill et al! :uhoh:

Did anybody else try measuring the page itself?

(somebody had to say it)

My full birth-certificate name scores 99% evil 1% good.

Most other variations on my name, including the one I commonly use, and also the word "Recherché", come out at 50% evil, 50% good.

Clearly I've been improving since birth. :D

Hey! I spoke to that guy on the phone once. I was working at an international aid agency, and he rang up to complain.

I've seen his website before, but he's added new stuff since back then. That guy is an unmitigated nutcase bigot.

interestingly, "The Devil" was rated at 99% evil. Dont forget to use his real title then guys!

And A/C is 99% evil! A real champ, a lot of chicks who know me would heartfully agree.

I'm not too far from 60 myself, but I'm approaching it from the other side . . . even so, I'm not so old I couldn't enjoy this site. Just the same, I'd rather be a viewer than a participant.

These don't qualify as "disturbingly preposterous" (unless you consider the amount of time you might waste on them) but here are a couple of "knight move" games you might enjoy.

You may have to register to play the first one (if so, it's a free rego):
http://www.troyis.com/troyis.php

The second is a Javascript game I found a couple of months ago and installed on the Rooty Hill site. So far nobody's managed to get it out although one guy told me he'd spent about 4 hours trying.

Here's another. It may not be disturbing or preposterous, but it's certainly intriguing. Where would you be if you could dig a hole right through the centre of the Earth and come out on the other side?

There's a web site that will take you there. You can locate it at http://www.digtootherside.cjb.net/.

I was so intrigued when I tried it out that I asked a few questions, explored a little further, and discovered the truth about the Atlantis legend. If you want to find out for yourself you can try users.tpg.com.au/adslpu7j/ss/atlantis.html which, if not disturbing, is certainly preposterous...

Little by little Atlantis made its way southward, around Cape Horn, and eventually settled in its present location beneath the Southern Cross.

Thanks for that, Keggy ... and I thought I was being original.
The location of the inverted Australia is pretty much the same as mine -- makes me think they got the idea from the same "dig to the other side" program.

:) I think both stories are original. Satire Wire had Australia basically smashing through Central and South America while your route vie Cape Horn is entirely more civilised. ;)

Thats a very long spiel to sell a teddy as "demonic".
