Posted by Whit Barringer , Friday, March 14, 2008 10:25 PM

Time for another Firestarter. Guess what? No news links this time! But damn, is the list random. And long.

  • Tao Te Ching
    • This is a Taoism resource, for a philosophy not oft considered by Westerners.
  • Religion Facts
    • Facts on religion that go more in depth than a casual reference. Taoism is included.
  • Dining in 2015
    • Is that a hedgehog?
  • How to Learn Any Language
    • There's a part of me that wants to be a polyglot. For those of you who are like me, read the tips on this site and feel incredibly lazy because you know you'll never be able to dedicate yourself. Don't worry. You're certainly not alone. We can lament together.
  • 36 Beautiful Resume Ideas that Work
    • Some very interesting designs for resumes. I don't know that I'll ever be able to use any of them for one of mine, but they are certainly attractive designs.
  • CalorieConnect.com
    • Food name in, calorie count out. Just a cleaner application than I've seen in the past. It all comes up on one page without reloading.
  • How Stuff Works
    • Self-explanatory, methinks.
  • Dinosaur Comics
    • I'd heard of it and read one or two beforehand, but I didn't realize how hilarious it is until I ran across it again. Always silly, but always funny.
  • Microsoft Interview Questions
    • Can you answer any of those? I knew there was a reason why I wasn't a computer programmer. Besides the math bit. And the logic.
  • How to Draw a Woman (video)
    • Cool sorta kinda tutorial. I've never seen someone start from the skeletal structure.
  • How to Detect Lies
    • Always a useful tool, especially in those casual interrogations that we all conduct in our basements, right? Saves on mess.
  • Why we do dumb s@#$.
    • Ten social psychology studies that explain why we don't always make the best judgment we could, among other things.
  • Test Your English
    • Can you say all of the words correctly the first time?
  • Cooking By Numbers
    • A good site, if rudimentary. Hilarious sidenote: Some friends and I put what they had in their fridge, and they only complete recipe that came up said, "You have 100% of 2 ingredients to make a Cup of Coffee." Even better: "You have 50% of 2 ingredients to make Scrambled Eggs." What were we lacking? Eggs.
  • FilmSecrets
    • Make your own films for a fraction of the cost. A cool guide to help those trying to make it on their own.
  • Write Your Name in Elvish in 10 Minutes!
    • If it was a real language, it would soooo be the best language ever.
  • "Street Installations"
    • Some very cool street artwork. It would be freaky to happen upon, but it's very cool at a distance.
  • The Table of Condiments
*deep breath* Whew.
