You didn't mention 4chan but I'm pretty sure everyone knows that one.

I'll go with Yahoo Answers(not the same as just saying Yahoo).

deviantart is pretty awesome too.

My Top 10

1. rottentomatoes.com

Probably tops in terms of movie reviews. It's great to check if you want to go to the movie theatre but don't want to foot a huge bill only to be disappointed with a film that looked good in trailers but sucks in reality.

2. Consumersearch.com

Ridiculously great for checking the ratings for tons of appliances and goods. This site isn't a ratings site but a site that actively seeks out other ratings and compiles detailed reports of consumer goods. This is a must for anyone that buys anything. They have car reviews, they have pasta sauce reviews, they have fridge reviews, and the list goes on and on. They also have really detailed and educational readings on even minute things such as cutting boards and the different pros and cons. I use it for everything I buy. Just make sure you check when it was last updated. This really only applies to technology which is outdated rather rapidly.

3. www.allrecipes.com

They rate recipes and allow users to post their own. Recipes must first be reviewed and tested by the site's staff for originality as well as for uniqueness. This way you don't get 1000s of similar recipes with the same ingredients. Anyone can rate the recipes, make changes. It's wonderful for amateur cooks to find great recipes.

4&5. www.yelp.com & www.tripadvisor.com

Want to go out to eat but don't know where to go? These review sites are tops in terms of quality. Yelp is generally done by younger college and highschool aged crowds while tripadvisor is done mainly by older folks.

6. Allbookstores.com

A search engine that literally searches every bookstore online and ranks your book in terms of cheapest price. Instead of searching on hundreds of books sites for the best price this does it for you. This includes shipping in the price. Great site

7. http://listen.grooveshark.com...

A wonderful site to listen to free music with no audio ads. It's a searchable song database with tons of content. Beats pandora any day. Allows you to favorite songs for long term use.

8. www.mint.com

Wonderful for ANYONE. This site does so much for me. It tracks my investments, tracks my purchases with my debit card. Categorizes my purchases based on rules I set up. As in everything that I buy at the store called "Martins" automatically is categorized as groceries. Etc. It sets up budgets for you and gives you pie charts automatically generated so you can see where your money is going. You can see how much you are spending on restaurants and where you go the most. You can put limits on how much you want to spend and it will send a text message to your phone the moment you go over budget. It sends out emails and texts to your phone with your balances in your investment accounts, checking accounts, savings accounts, etc weekly. It also can send text messages if you spend over a predefined amount. You can define that amount even to be 0.01 cent. This way every time you make a purchase mint will send you a text alerting you made it. This can prevent people from stealing your money or you being charged more than what you needed to pay.

9. http://briefing.com...

Best website to get concise information about what is going on in the market without any spin at all. Really great information that is applicable to what's going on.

10. http://www.food.com...

Another decent place to get recipes.
Me -Phil left the site in my charge. I have a recorded phone conversation to prove it.
kohai -If you're the owner, then do something useful like ip block him and get us away from juggle and on a dofferent host!
Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!

http://www/unreaitymag.com/ - and all the sites they link to in their daily breakdown posts, it's similar to Cracked

http://www.geekologie.com... - basically the same as Unreality except with tech/nerd stuff

http://forum.nationstates.net... - Basically DDO forums with stupider people, plus the nation-sim can be fun

http://elementsthegame.com... - awesome free card game similar to Magic the Gathering but way smaller and way, way more simple

http://nihonomaru.com... and http://forums.kametsu.com... - I find anime here.

http://mafiascum.net... - I sometimes play mafia here

http://tvtropes.org... - Hilarious wiki that describes memes and other aspects generated from entertainment media

http://preview.tinyurl.com... - Sanaku Complex which is basically unreality but with Anime news. In tinyurl preview form because the site is a bit NSFW.

http://www.collectedcurios.com... - A pretty funny webcomic about a design artist, a comic book geek penguin, a cat-girl photogropher, and a idiot savant squirrel-girl.

Well...

Hulu - obv.

Google Play - I know, I know. No google. But it's pretty cool. Finds links for you that it thinks you'll enjoy. Much fun. :)

deviantART - Post and view art. Good community.

warez-bb - Find music, movies, television episodes, books, etc.

avclub - Find awesome reviews on all that is entertainment. I particularly like their TV club.

Eh - I usually use websites more for news/articles than anything. So my list will be a fairly short selection out of the multitude of feeds I receive. Outside of that my interests are fairly select and so probably not the greatest value in sharing. :P

http://lesswrong.com...
http://www.newscientist.com...
http://discovermagazine.com...
http://prosblogion.ektopos.com...

Useful random things.

It may come at no surprise but I tend to read a lot of philosophical websites:

http://el-prod.baylor.edu... -- epistemology
http://agencyandresponsibility.typepad.com... -- free will and moral responsibility
http://peasoup.typepad.com... - philosophy (generally speaking)
http://dangerousidea.blogspot.com... - phil of religion
http://exapologist.blogspot.com... - phil of religion

Other randoms (mostly related to my language learning):

http://www.nicovideo.jp... -- japanese youtube
http://lang-8.com... -- language learning
http://www.lifehacker.jp... -- cool technology stuff
http://amebreak.ameba.jp... -- music

fvck, you took mine. well, here's another
http://nicosound.anyap.info...
well, there you can download mp3 files for songs (mainly vocaloid and UTAU) Go ask some one on youtube how to work the site. I'll waste too much space trying to explain.

some one said deviantart.com earlier, but that site is pretty fwesome.

and thank you for grooveshark! I can listen to music again! (I can't get on youtube)

http://piapro.jp...
piapro. I don't actually use it as much as my friend does, but it's to get updates on music releases etc on vocaloid stuff from what I can understand (in japanese)

Well...most people use a bunch of decks. it's a pretty balanced game and no one deck is going to win all the time against other players. What do you mean "cheats in the PvP" ?
