Note: All ratings are my initial personal opinions of the quality of the Web sites, nothing more.
Also: if I didn't think the sites were good, they wouldn't be here. So, one star isn't bad, it's just at the low end of "good enough to link."

Britney Spears Guide to Semiconductor Physics n/a A brief look around the site shows some actual semiconductor physics descriptions and equations, together with totally random nonsense.
WE-MAN!'s funny things to do with your microwave oven ** Some interesting, some dangerous, some stupid. Be very careful to think before you act. ** Home of the "Solar Death Ray" (many plane mirrors, focusing light to a common point), and the "Gravity Death Log" (uh... a log, lifted to a height and dropped).
Sculpture has death-ray potential ** News story: "The Turner prize winner Anish Kapoor has designed a giant dish mirror to be erected outside the theatre. However, an astronomer has warned that the mirror could focus light into a reflected beam capable of barbecuing birds in its path."
Bouncing silly putty -- shatters! ** Includes a video clip of a huge ball of silly putty, dropped from the roof of a parking garage, shattering (rather than splatting). See also: "Binney & Smith, manufacturer of Silly Putty, makes between 17,000 and 20,000 "eggs" a day at its plant in Pennsylvania. That translates into about 425 to 500 pounds of Silly Putty each day. According to our scientists, Silly Putty has a rebound of 80 percent, meaning it will bounce back 80 percent of the height it's dropped -- pretty impressive, no?"

Interesting but Odd Rating Description
