Useful Sites

If there's one thing I've learned from the Internet, it's that people love lists. Can't get enough of them. Cracked.com, which gets something like 15,000,000+ visitors a month, is pretty much a website of lists. So, here you go: my list of 42 useful sites on the internet, in no particular order. Hopefully you'll discover a few good ones.

10minutemail.com – for those times you need a throwaway email address
accountkiller.com – how-tos on deleting your account or profile from popular websites
camelcamelcamel.com – tracks prices of online shopping sites
