Hello 'all, your favorite neighborhood orange-obsessed trekkie here. Today, I've decided to compile a list of websites that I feel that everyone should include in their internet toolboxes. Whether it be to check what words mean or if you're itching to get a new name for your MMO character, these links should help.

First off, this is the main dictionary website I use. If you have a better one, feel free to ignore this, but here it is for those of you who need one.
http://dictionary.reference.com/

Anyone, and I mean ANYONE who ever gets caught up in a debate and/or argument needs this.
https://yourlogicalfallacyis.com/

The name speaks for itself. This is a website with many randomizers and generators.
http://www.random.org/

And for random words for roleplaying and other uses, try this site. Just eh... ignore what the address says...
http://nine.frenchboys.net/

Here's a website for all your coloring needs~
http://www.colorcombos.com/

Here's a little something for the game developers out there. Or anyone that wants to learn more about how games work(or should work)

We all make mistakes in our speech at one point or another. But for non-typo mistakes in English such as the oh-so-common it's error, this website will help a great deal. Great if English isn't your first language, or if you're just bad at it. =p

Enjoy, and keep being awesome! =)

The only tool one would ever truly need on the internet.
You haven't heard "Jukebox Hero" until you've heard it in the original Klingon.

To be honest, so far as spelling and grammar are concerned, with increasing use of lazy text-speak, and worthless acronyms such as 'lol', effective use/application of the English language does appear to be on the decline.

Whilst I understand that age, and education, need to be taken into consideration it does seem that many are a little too insouciant about the lack of perspicuity in what they write.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

I remember that song. It's kinda catchy.

(shameless bump btw)

Not as many people interested in this stuff as I thought...
