A roundup of recommended Web sites

Happy trails: Gearing up to tackle K2? Or maybe something less ambitious? Check out http://www.thebackpacker.com for guidance on where to go and what to take.

*

Instant replay: The score may be different, but the coverage sounds the same. Find some of your favorite sports-isms at http://www.sportscliche.com. You can also vote on which announcer is the worst offender.

*

Hang time: Long for the days of playing hooky to catch the first baseball game of the season? Check out http://www.streetplay.com for games people play, from stickball to politics as usual.

*

Officer, are you serious? According to http://www.dumblaws.com, you would have to yield right of way to peacocks and may have to take your toad-licking out of L.A. city limits. Some laws are dated, and others are just downright senseless. The site also links to other dumb sites on criminals and warnings.

*

Reel swift: Movie magic takes on a different meaning at http://www.moviebloopers .com. See things disappear and reappear and change from scene to scene. Is Darth Vader's light saber really red or white? A couple of slices of "American Pie" also have some bad cuts. So much for consistency.

*

Breaking news: OK, news hounds, here's where you can sniff out stories on those who give you the daily scoop: http://www.medianews.org.
