Have you ever wanted to read an article on the LA Times or anywhere
else but could only read part of the article unless you registered?
You can bypass the registration process with this handy website.
Find Out If Something Is True Or Not
When you get an email containing some urgent piece of news or
a story, you can check Urban Legends and find out of it's true
before you waste anyone else's time (by forwarding it). In fact,
if you find out it's not true, hit "reply to all"
and send them a link to the Urban Legends page so you can stop
anyone else from forwarding it (and teach them what to do with
those emails in the future).
Direct Deposit For Any Paycheck
Earth Class Mail solves the problem of how to get your snail-mail
while traveling. Earth Class Mail will receive your regular mail,

Send Yourself Reminders Daily, Weekly, or Monthly
Type the message you want to send to yourself and then choose
how often you want to get it in your email inbox, and click "Resnooze
yourself." That's it. Your message will be emailed to you
until you want it to stop.
Find a Shorter Word With The Same Meaning
This is a thesaurus that will give you shorter words for

search on many different sites including Google, Facebook, Craigslist,
Ebay, Wikipedia, MySpace, and Amazon.

which days you want the installments of the book to arrive in
your inbox, give your email address, and the book is delivered
to you via email one section at a time. Free.
