Finds of the Week is a list of web sites I've come across lately that are interesting, fun, or useful (or all three). I hope you enjoy them. -Rhiannon
What Is My Screen Resolution?
This is such a simple web app, I just love it. Go the site and you'll see your screen resolution. No buttons to push, nothing to click on. :)
GeoGuessr is an addictive web-based geographic discovery game. When you visit the site, you are at a random Google Street View location. It can be any where around the world that has Google Street View - you then use Google Street View to guess the location. Some helpful information is at this Wikipedia article.
Free Rhyming Dictionary
Not only is this a good dictionary, but it lists 6 ways to narrow your search: End Rhymes, Last Syllable Rhymes, Double Rhymes, Triple Rhymes, Beginning Rhymes and First Syllable Rhymes. You can also explore rhyming words alphabetically. There's a fuller featured downloadable desktop rhyming dictionary available for a fee, but the online version should be fine for most of us.
You're Getting Old
The title of this site put me off a bit, but after I tried it I enjoyed it. You can enter a date of birth for yourself or a friend and all sorts of interesting information is displayed, like how many times the moon has orbited the earth since you were born, a list of events for various life stages (infant, child, teen, and so forth).
Interestingly, the average age of visitors to the site is 31 years old. I'm definitely showing my years, over 91% of site visitors are younger than I am. :)
