I just found a great website and thought I'd share it with everyone. It's called answers.com and it has so much stuff on there you wouldn't believe me if I told you, so check it out yourself - you'll be amazed. It's like a collection of EVERYTHING individual-topic reference websites are made of (dictionary.com, wiki..), but it's not only got a bit of info for everything.. for example, say you went to the "dictionary" tab and typed in "winter".. you get all the definitions (even from old/middle english!), you can listen to the word on a sound file or in various author's passages; its different uses; there's a detailed animated picture of the earth with winter coming and going; a lengthy definition of how different cultures (past and present) saw winter and made it a part of their calendars etc; what causes winter; migrating animals; winter sports; its symbolism and mythology; winter paintings by famous artists, poems; it immediatly translates the word into 16 different languages for your reference . . . it even shows you what it looks like in sign language! And best of all, all these things have links so if you want something elaborated, it's just a click away. On the main page, there are even resources for webmasters, bloggers, teachers, librarians, journalists, small businesses and advertisers. You can browse the news, images, the web, go shopping online, yada yada yada. Plus.. it's 100% free. . . I thought wikipedia was good, but wow, now I don't need to go through all the reference sites to find something; it's all in one place.
