wasting time in an intelligent way! corsinet.com for humor, trivia, quotations and miscellaneous other good stuff

corsinet.com is an excellent, intelligent way to waste time on the internet: discover unusual facts, learn some new things, wake up your brain cells and have some fun.

We've been wasting time on the internet since before there was an internet!

Our collections:

Brain Candy was first posted on the internet in 1990, as a way to store the accumulation of word play, riddles and jokes we had compiled through the years.

Trivial Trivia is our collection of weird facts and unusual information, much of it is totally useless unless one is training for Jeopardy or a trivia contest.

Chicago Collections is a huge resource about Chicago. A little history, some quotations and song lyrics, and links to great Chicago area attractions.

DesignWeb started because people liked our web sites and asked for help in designing theirs. We are currently taking new clients only on a very selective basis.

TC is Tony's artwork. He doesn't sell it & doesn't answer his email, so don't even bother.

Our Garden is a work in progress. It's what we've learned about installing and maintaining a koi pond in our back yard. There are lots of pictures of our pond and plants we've had success with in a shady yard, in the brutal weather of the Chicago area.

History of Diseases (a great resource site)
Disease is considered to be a harmful deviation from the normal structural or functional state of an organism. A diseased organism commonly exhibits signs or symptoms indicative of its abnormal state. Thus, the normal condition of an organism must be understood in order to recognize the hallmarks of disease. Nevertheless, a sharp demarcation between disease and health is not always apparent.

The Five Most Expensive Chocolates in the World
Chocolates are one of the many heavenly tastes to our tongues. We buy loads of them and store them in the refrigerator to be eaten at will. But sometimes, buying chocolates can get a little expensive.

Stevie Nicks: a survivor's story
Thirty years after she sold her soul to the devil and, with Fleetwood Mac, set new records for rock'n'roll overindulgence, Stevie Nicks has somehow lived to tell the tale - and what a tale it is.

The Swan Boats of Boston
The Swan Boats are as much a part of Boston as the bean and the cod. They are the harbinger of Spring to native Bostonians. Famed in the stories Make Way For Ducklings and The Trumpet of the Swan, the Swan Boats are the only boats of their kind in the world! To the delight of the young and old each April for over 120 years, the Swan Boats have appeared in the Public Garden Lagoon with preenly grace.

Stories Behind the Arena Anthems
It's strange how some music played at sports events really catch on with crowds. Ironic that some of the most notable macho jock anthems have been written and/or performed by gay men like "YMCA" by The Village People, and "We are the Champions" and "We Will Rock You" by Queen.

Top Public Relations Blunders
Some of these so-called "PR Blunders" can be hilarious, idiotic, or outrageous. And, in some instances, the listed party's blunder may have only created a temporary setback; case in point, the Dixie Chicks.
