The web is a veritable treasure trove of information – there is no doubt about that. While it is a good source of information that you can use for practical purposes, the web also offers lots of things for purely entertainment purposes. One of the things that I like doing when I have some spare time is reading about odd news from all over the world. Yahoo News and other news web sites actually has a special section dedicated to this type of news.
If you are into this as well, you can check out the blog The Odd Herald, which specializes in the weirdest pieces of news you can find online. It is relatively new – it was launched only last March – but you can find a good collection of entertaining pieces.
