CDC: The centers for disease control and prevention

This US Government site is usually the first one I turn to for information about any particular disease. I love the blunt terminology, such as this statement about when to keep kids with hand, foot, and mouth disease out of childcare: "Some benefit may be gained, however, by excluding children who have blisters in their mouths and drool or who have weeping lesions on their hands."


Pathology Guy

Ed's Pathology Notes include a step by step discussion of the autopsy process illustrated with 8-bit style doctors and subject. There are notes on many other pathology and non-pathology topics, but not all of pages have relevant content. A good source of links to other pathology sites, though.


Probabilities in the Game of Monopoly

Extensive statistical analysis of the chances of landing on any particular space on the Monopoly board. This is useful, eg, in evaluating the potential income of a property. Further tables include data on average income per roll of the dice for properties and other spaces. It then includes advice based on this like: "The square most landed on other than Jail is Illinois Avenue, and in fact a hotel there will bring the most income other than a hotel on Boardwalk."
