    The glaucoma site is one of the weirdest sites I have ever come across, and this is coming from someone who makes a living designing websites. Almost creepy with the totally inappropriate background music. :eek:

    Some of those sites remind me of why I hate when "web" designers use Flash for navigation...

    Reminds me of the old Providence College cheer:
    One person: "What's the color of horse manure?"
    Group: "Brown! Brown! Brown!"

    I don't know how many times I've visited that Brown Graduate School site in the past year—I never realized that there was more to those categories up there (Admissions, Academics, etc.)—I always just thought that was it. Truly annoying…

    The 'wayback machine' is so amusing (http://web.archive.org)! I had the wonderful opportunity to revisit my university's shameful past on the internet...granted, it's nothing to admire at the moment, but it was just *bad* Oh memories...

    Oh. The wedding one? Are we sure that just isn't a joke?
