If your brain is longing for more than simply adrenaline, then you'll find it here! Since there is a life beyond skydiving [at least sometimes] we like to show you some great non-skydiving sites - kinda "food for the brain".
"Continuity" is practically a science in filmmaking, the study of making sure that things don't suddenly and accidentally change from one scene to the next. If an actor is wearing brown pants as he walks through a door, he'd better be wearing the same brown pants with the same stains when the camera instantly switches to watching him enter the next room.

Still, mistakes happen. And Movie Bloopers Online is there to point them out. Through still-frame movie images that show before-and-after comparisons, Bloopers explains what was wrong and leaves you unable to watch that flick the same way again.
This online magazine is a source of "alternative news" for "alternative America." With that premise, it's no surprise that one of the lead stories when we dropped by was about the CIA's alleged blind eye for cocaine trafficking in Nicaragua. Or the story "The Truth Behind The Truth" about the most ambitious antismoking campaign ever features a guerrilla organization and body bags--all being funded by Big Tobacco itself.
But don't think this is only politics and business as unusual. Other top stories on our visitation days were a review of the latest Jim Carrey movie and an update on Sammy Sosa trade rumors, and the story of "rock star" Chris Sharma, a daring young climber who works without a net, and is redefining the sport of bouldering.
A very talented and dedicated guy named Dexter Sear has created a colorful, visually stunning site that's perfect for kids and curious adults. It's broken down into four sections. Entophiles is a database of hundreds of insects, from Dragonflies to Walking Sticks. Look up each insect's common name, scientific name, description, and photo. Cedigest contains articles on Cultural Entomology, which studies how bugs affect human society. (Surprise! It's more than just bites and stings.)
Class:Insectia explores different aspects of insects, such as studying moth wing patterns. It's a great resource for teachers and students alike. Finally, Entolinks is a list of other useful insect Web sites. The only bug you won't find here is the kind that crashes your computer.
