10 Amazing Websites You Did not Know Existed

#1 Wayback Machine. The Internet Archive Wayback Machine is a website set up by a nonprofit organization that scans and stores billions of web pages. You can type in something like youtube.Com. It shows you the entire history and you can pick a date like 2006. Scroll down and select a particular day and it shows you what that webpage looked like back then. You can even click on some of the sub menus and see what those look like. This is a useful tool if you want to go back in time and see what websites looked like. #2 Account Killer. Account Killer is a website dedicated to removing your accounts from a variety of different online services. It has 3 colors to show off.

(Obviously I'm advanced...)

I may be a "lone wolf" on this theory, but English seems to be one of the most popular languages LEARNED around the world -- I didn't say most well-known or most popular languages by volume. Mandarin Chinese blows all other languages out of the water, but China is obviously much bigger than America by population.

The Ultimate Student Reference Guide: College Station, TX

Image
Although I no longer live in College Station, I spent 4 years there as a student at Texas A&M University. I really enjoyed being in College Station, and still miss many parts of it today.

A lot of good memories, a lot of good friends, and a lot of fun times.

Whether you're new to town as an incoming freshman, an incoming graduate student, or just moving there for a job opportunity, I hope you will experience C-Stat to the "max" and enjoy it as much as I did during college.

Although everyone experiences this college town in a different way (and I encourage you to go out and learn about the "in's and out's" on your own), this guide will help you get started by listing some of the best places to go, places to eat, things to do, and things to know in the vastly growing town of College Station.

So, here we go.

Disclaimer: Last time I visited College Station was in October 2015, so I will try to update this as much as possible as I visit each time.
