(last update: 7/12/98)

This is a totally free-form list containing items of unknown value.  As it grows, some items will be dumped and whole new sections will form.  BABYLAND, MATTRESS and the authors, hosts, service providers etc. are in no way responsible for what you might find at these locations.  However, the authors do reserve the right to kick out any links that they suddenly deem "over the line," or "just too fucked up," "dumb," etc.  Some of these links may in fact have been chosen exactly because they are so totally debased, fowl, and repulsive either in form or content that we felt it necessary to include them as targets for your rage.  Others are amateur sites, created with the best of intentions but lacking the level of self restraint that you might expect from civilized humans.  Regardless, here they all are!  For you to enjoy, ignore, despise, assault, enlist in and otherwise squeeze the value out of.  If you know of a site that should be on this list, please forward it, along with a brief description, to  SMITH  (Smith568@earthlink.net).  Fascist assholes need not apply.
