HOW RICH ARE YOU?
Apples, oranges and all that – but I love this site. Click here. (Thanks, Steve!)
HOW SICK ARE YOU?

With thousands more votes cast, IMDB still has SiCKO beating out all the others. (Three thousand more people have ranked Harry Potter since I last looked – but it still gets 8.1 stars, as before, to SiCKO’s 8.5.)
HOW MUCH DO YOUR KIDS KNOW ABOUT SEX?
Agh! I’m feeling uncomfortable even broaching the question, and I don’t even know your kids. Have you had ‘the talk’ with them? Icky, icky, icky. Does their school provide sex ed? Probably not. Well . . . now comes sexetc.org, written by teenagers for teenagers, with everything from a glossary of terms (oh, my!), to videos, to moderated forums, and more – including a special section for kids in crisis.
There were 2,302 visitors signed on when I checked just now. Some of them were probably parents checking out the site, as you should, before suggesting it to your kids.
