FOR THE BOOKMARK: Web sites worth the click

By Published on .

No bells and whistles here, but this site more than makes up for its lack of flash with its easy-to-use calculators and conversion tools — from a man's ideal body-weight calculator to an English-into-pig-Latin translator. Under “Quick Links,� you'll find fun, functional apparatus for physics majors, from velocity and speed calculators to temperature and distance converters, in case you're considering fleeing the country. One calculator can also figure out how much your weekly paycheck is really worth, after taxes. And if that doesn't depress you enough, click on the conversion tool called “Your Age,� which will tell you how many days, hours, minutes and seconds you've been alive, and how many you have to go until your next birthday.
