List of Awesome Websites

Ever felt the need for a website specialized in how many privacy infringing functions a website uses? Or watching every single plane that is in the air at any given moment? Perhaps you have wondered if there is such website that tells you if two different materials can be glued together?

Well, the internet have some true information-goldmines. But do know that there is almost never such a thing as “free”. Companies collect your information to personalize ads or work in other ways to stay “free”. Well, if you want to know before checking any of the websites listed below, you could start with The Markup Blacklight to see what the websites collect. Unless you use VPN while browsing it’s pretty safe to say that you don’t have that much privacy.

Anyway, I guess we all will keep using the internet for now so why not have a bit of fun? Here’s a list of some random, but possibly needed knowledge-inducing websites. Enjoy!
