Iain Lee - The Magic of the Internet

Let’s just dive straight in shall we? I’m not going to mess around and tease you, instead, boom, I’m going to give you one of the funniest videos I have ever seen. Ladies and gentlemen, the Sexy Sax Man

But while the Sexy Sax man takes on an epic journey into the world of the Careless Whisper, this next website doesn’t. It’s just an annoying clip on an infinite loop. How long will you last? Sadly, I watched it for 15 hours straight.

OK. That’s out of the way, now we can proceed.

Hidden hash

I remember years ago when I made the move from PC to Apple Macintosh. It was an exciting journey, but also terrifying. I still struggle with certain things because the Apple Macintosh doesn’t make sense. But it looks sexy and makes me, along with the millions of other Apple Macintosh users, individuals. The main problem facing all people who cross from the dark side to the light is where is the hash key on a mac? You need never be confused again. Store this website in your favourites and click on it whenever you are puzzled.

Bee more dog

Two of my least favourite things in the world are bees and dogs. I hate them. Bees sting. Dogs bite. And wee everywhere. And dry hump your leg and sniff your crotch when you go near them. It’s odd then that I get so much pleasure from bee dogs. Don’t panic, it’s not some kind of bizarre Dr. Moreau style hybrid, it’s just bees dressed as dogs. No. Hang on. That’s not it. I meant the other one – dogs dressed as bees.

Doggone shame

Even though I dislike dogs immensely (I am a cat person), I have to admit that this next website is cruel and should be closed down immediately. I have written to the internet and expect it to be removed soon. So check out this site before this awful abuse of canines is no longer available.

By the seat of your pants

People who collect toilet seats are NOT weird. And people who collect toilet seats covered in like art and stuff are most definitely NOT weird. Barney Smith runs a museum of toilet seats covered in like art and stuff and I can say categorically that he is totally 100% NOT weird. Have a look and make your own mind up.

OK, maybe he’s a little odd, but odd in the good way. Not the bad way. You know that if this museum was near your house, you would buy an annual pass and be there every weekend. I can never see enough of this stuff. Ever. Yes, technically it may not be an actual museum. It is, of course, an ‘oversized garage’ but at least Barney is trying. What have you done with your life? Very little in comparison I would suggest. Very little indeed, my friends.

Fight!

Fighting is bad. That’s been proven by science. Which in some ways is good, because I punch like a girl with a broken wrist and cry like a baby. But in every other way, it’s bad. We all like watching fights, don’t we? Well, fear ye not. I am not going to send you to a violent fighty fight fight site. Everything I recommend here is workplace friendly. But…we can all imagine fights can’t we?

Who Would Win in a Fight allows users to discuss fantasy fights and vote on the outcome. Yeah, it’s got the obvious ones like Batman vs Ironman (although one poster, Mythlvr0821, questions the validity of this fight in his post “Because they are from different universes, I’m assuming this fight would be a surprise to both, and that each would enter with no prior knowledge of the other.” He then goes on to say Ironman would ‘kick the crap’ out of Batman) What’s great about this site is the slightly odder battles it sets up. Google Chrome vs. Mozilla Firefox, Siri vs. Hal from 2001 and Homer Simpson vs. Peter Griffin. All can be argued about and debated in a fair and scientific way here.

That’s it for now. Do please keep sending me your websites. I don’t have a proper job so I need something to keep me off the streets. Pop along to www.facebook.com/iainleeofficial

You can read Iain Lee’s very own take on the internet here on the 123-reg blog every third Friday of the month.

A familiar face on television since he got his first break landing the job hosting Channel 4’s thrice weekly topical comedy show the 11 O’Clock Show at the age of 25, Iain is also an award winning radio presenter, top podcast creator and a genuinely funny guy with an eye for the bizarre.
