I've never seen the show, but the web-toy isn't bad.

"The Nietzsche Family Circus"

The Nietzsche Family Circus pairs a randomized Family Circus cartoon with a randomized Friedrich Nietzsche quote.

The concept is so simple, yet so insidiously hysterical, that you'll wish you'd thought of it yourself. Give it a shot.

Have a few moments to spare? Of course you do. And what better way to spend them than constructing your own Eno-esque soundscapes with ToneMatrix?

If images are your thing (and you're on Twitter), try playing with Portwiture, an experimental app that translates your text input into images. (To see my own Twitter stream visualized, click here.)

This Java chessboard visualizes the computer's "thought" processes. Wouldn't it be swell if people were as transparent?

Is there a blogger who's really starting to bug you? An online pundit whose observations are beginning to grate? Do what I do: visit Netdisaster and declare war. They had it coming.

Examples? I got 'em.

Had enough of wading through the lame ads on Whitley Strieber's site? Release the attack saucers!

Fed up with Richard Hoagland's paranoid screeds? We can fix that.

But I'm saving the best for last . . .

Astrology is lame and Myers-Briggs is for losers. The omniscient Oracle of Starbucks can tell you everything about your personality by what you drink at Starbucks. Simply enter your full drink order -- including size -- into the field below and the all-knowing Oracle will tell you everything about your personality. Better yet, input your friends' orders to find out what they're really like.

Unlike other imitations, the Oracle is 100% accurate.

The Oracle says I'm boring. What about you?
