MUG's Newsletter

Today, MUG's newsletter came through with a variety of websites that are "part of an ongoing effort to reduce workplace productivity by 43%." (As if I was being productive anyway as election results still trickle in.)
My favorites of their selections:
The Dead Letter. Write, submit, and read letters with this situational restriction: "You are now dead. You just died. You don't know how it happened, you don't know what happens now. The only thing you know for certain is that your life is over. This is your opportunity to write one letter to the world. You may say anything you want. You may use as many or as few words as necessary. What will you say?"
Just Letters. A multi-user game where you essentially move letters around a screen for the fleeting glory of forming a word. People will, however, snatch away your letters, and then you will snatch someone else's. I don't quite know why I keep fiddling with it, but I do...
Mental Floss's Geography Challenge. Having recently embarked upon a quest of improving my knowledge of geography, this is excellent for everyone seeking to do the same... particularly Americans who have no sense of geography whatsoever.
