Cheap Thrill of the Day: Blufr

I often find myself waiting for one of my PCs to finish some operation or task. Usually I’ll fire up Free Cell for a quick game while I wait. But sometimes that gets tiring. Blufr.com a great time waster that might even give you some Jeopardy-like useless trivia to share with someone you’re trying to get rid of at a dinner party. Something like, “Did you know that Shaggy from the Scooby Doo cartoons is actually named ‘Norville’?” Or, “Did you know that Hawaii’s Mount Wai’ale’ale receives more rain per year than anywhere else in the world?” OK, those might be kinda so-so. But there are some really good ones.

You don’t even need to sign up. Just go to Blufr.com, read the question and click either “No Way!” or “Way!”. Your progress will be recorded as you move on. After about 20 questions I did see some repetition, but it’s a fun way to waste a few minutes and clutter your brain with useless trivia at the same time. Check it out.

(By the way, freckles aren’t tumors. According to Blufr, freckles are actually cluster of melanin and darken in the sun much in the same way as tanning occurs.)
