Some YouTube search tools:

Unlisted Videos - A website for unlisted YouTube videos (videos that won't appear in YouTube's search results).

PetitTube - Randomly selects YouTube videos that currently have fewer than ten views.

YouTube Time Machine - Find videos of footage produced in a particular year.

Geoguessr - A game based on Google Street View, where you get placed somewhere in the world and have to guess where you are (you are allowed to walk around, zoom in etc just like with Google Street View).  The closer your guess, the more points you get.

it's probably fairly well known actually but I think it's better than netflix- it has the wire, family guy, modern family, big bang theory etc.) . The first two episodes of any series are free. and some older shows like The Wire or The IT Crowd are all free. You buy credits rather than sign up for any  period of time. it's awesome.


A great website for people suffering with severe depression, hopelessness and a bleak outlook for the future to chat with others in the same boat - http://galwayhurlingforum.proboards.com/


I'm still mourning the death of wiziwig, the great sports streaming website that made my years abroad tolerable.

I hadn't heard of it before, and it only has an Alexa.com ranking of 313,067 (however Alexa's rankings are only estimates).

If the RUC had that in the 1970's the Troubles may have been a lot shorter

Drench browser game.  You start in the top left hand corner, which is the starting point of a connected cluster of squares.  You change the colour of the cluster, and it absorbs all adjacent squares of the colour you change to.  The objective is to make the entire area the same colour within the turn limit.
