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.
