What the F*ck Should I Make for Dinner and 45 Other Amazingly Helpful Websites

The internet is a weird, weird place. But also wonderful, on its own merits.

What website do you open first when you turn on your computer?

Probably Facey, probably your email. But there are literally a bazillion other things you can do on the internet.

Hold on, this is not going to turn into that Windows 95 tutorial with Jen Aniston and Matt Perry. We’re cool and hip and current… and did we mention cool? Anyway, you’re going to love this one.

Here are 45 amazingly helpful websites you might have never knew existed!
