I came across this site randomly as I was searching elsewhere on the internet.  It gave me warm fuzzies.

Some Odd Websites I've Come Across

This first website takes you to a stone skipping robot.  It was built because a lot of people want to skip stones, but they don't always live near a source of water which allows for this desire.

The next site features an ascii face, and the eyes follow your mouse around.  However, if you should click on the face, and hold the mouse button down, you'll be in for a nice treat.  The longer you hold it down, the better it gets.

This next website takes you to a place where people have set it up so you can see what they're doing, as well as turn their lights on and off. It's fairly interesting, the camera is controllable, and their cars also broadcast if they're on the move, so you can see what they're seeing.

And finally, one of the stranger sites I've come across lately.  It features He-Man singing What's Up? on loop.  That's all there is to it.  I'm not really sure why it was created, but it's hard not to watch the whole thing.

Blogfather Harvey over at BadExample recently made a post linking to a video about the frustration which some websites put you through in order to signup or change your password.  This reminded me of a couple of comics I've seen floating around the internet.  The first one is called Password Validation which is from Popstrip, and I think adequately details the frustration of choosing a password on some of the more idiotic websites.  The second comes from xkcd and is titled Password Strength.  I've placed the image of the xkcd below, for the lazy.  It details that the passwords those websites make you choose really aren't as secure as you might think, though they are hard to remember.
