14 Ridiculously Useful Websites

CrossfitA free fitness website that posts a new "Workout of the Day" every day. The workouts focus on total body fitness. The workouts are used by military personnel, athletes, and normal people. The site also contains an index of the exercises used in the workouts complete with videos and slideshows. They offer a newsletter for those willing to pay. It is an outstanding site for both fitness gurus and average Joes.

Lonely PlanetThis site offers, among other things, an outstanding resource for anyone researching travel destinations.

Retail Me NotA catalog of online coupons posted and reviewed by users. The coupons vary from sites like Polo to Amazon to Papajohns.

E-HowA reference site for just about everything else. Want to k now how to wax snow skis? Make pizza dough? Install a bathtub? This is the place.

BartlebyOne of the better academic research websites I've come across.

You choose the mood, intensity, and genres of the music you would like to hear and the site will provide you with a virtual web of music to explore. The web evolves with each choice you make.
