Snopes - the center of urban legend debunking and confirming.
My other internet-as-drug sites:
Acts of Gord - the trials and tribulations of a video game store owner. I don't think it's been updated since the early 00's, but I always end up re-reading it a few thousand times. If I remember correctly, it's set entirely in Canada.
The SCP Foundation - it's almost like an encyclopedia of horror both horrific and mundane, isn't it?
Etiquette Hell - sometimes okay, sometimes victim-blamey, usually classist, and always manners above all, including common sense. And yet, it's fascinating sometimes to read, like an anthropological study of the Personus Passive-Agressiveus. And sometimes, it has awesome entries, too.
Passive Aggressive Notes - yeah, exactly. Could lose years in here.
Rotten Tomatoes - in general, probably the best predictor of whether a movie is a.) good or b.) I'll want to see it. The review collection as well as the personal opinions of sitegoers tend to give a fantastic breadth of opinions to mine for information.
Boomshine - yes, I know, and I'm not even sorry. Much. I once played until my fingers cramped.
Not Always Right - from the front lines of the service industry, these are their stories
Lifehacker - it's so soothing, like this weird combination of a do-it-yourself manual and a technological gossip site.
Newegg - okay, yes, technically speaking it's a shopping site, but who doesn't sit entranced while designing teh most awesome computer ever?
Anyone want to contribute? Think of it as poetic justice.
