I have to say rotten dot com is not my type of website, but

it did catch my attention. Even if you are disturbed or not

attracted to something, you should give it a chance. You

never know what to expect especially when you see,

"Rotten dot com collects images and information from

many sources to present the viewer with a truly unpleasant

experience" on the main page. The content of the site is

different than any other website that I have seen, but the

form and layout is very common among websites. Rotten

dot com actually reminds of a newspaper's layout. On the

main page there are several links, some on the left side, and

some going down the bottom of the page. These links can

be related to the subtitles of newspapers which lead you to

the inside story. Being that the website is easily viewed and

understandable, rotten dot com is a very well designed

website. All the links show what topics can be viewed.

Then after clicking on the specific link you want, a header

page is opened. For example, if you click on the link

"Celebrity Morgue", you will see a page with two skeletons

on it, and the title overlapping them. Below the title and

skeletons is a list of people who you can view dead bodies

of. Under the photos of the bodies, there are brief

descriptions of how each individual person died. Another

one of these links is called "famous." The famous link takes

you to a page similar to the Celebrity Morgue page, where

there are several sub links on the page. With these links

you can view rare photographs. Some of these photos

contain Richard Nixon meeting Elvis Presley, and a picture

of David Duchonovy almost nude, which appeared on the

cover of a European magazine. Another picture is of Nancy

Reagan sitting on Mr. T's lap, as he is dressed like Santa

Claus. As I previously stated, the form of this website is

extremely basic. It contains a lot of links to other pages,

which consist of a few odd and disturbing photos. Each

page contains a few cartoon pictures, which describe and

are related to that specific title of the page. A nice link to

click is the "mug shots" link. You can view and take a look

at famous actors', criminals', and professional athletes' mug

shots. Some mug shots that I think are good are Pee Wee

Herman because he got arrested for masturbating, Charles

Barkley because he broke a man's nose in a bar fight, and

Al Pacino as young hoodlum growing up in Brooklyn. After

viewing the page titled "Infants" which contain photos of

beastly babies", I really felt sick to my stomach. This page

must be one of the most disgusting that can be viewed

through rotten dot com. This page lets the viewer see a

baby that looks like an alien, a deformed infant, a baby

with an enormous size head, and a fetus with a pig like

appearance. Looking at these photos just made me cringe.

Personally, I can't believe people would put such pictures

on a page for the entire the world to see. I honestly hope

that those pictures aren't real, but it is sad knowing that

certain babies are born deformed, unhealthy, and with

diseases. An interesting page of modern times that I can

relate to is the O.J. Simpson page. I can relate to this

because this is one major trial that practically everyone in

the country had some kind of an idea what was going on.

Rotten dot com shows a few photographs of the murder of

Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman. The most eye catching

of these pictures is one that appeared on the cover of a

London magazine. This photo was a close up of Nicole

Simpson's face covered with blood. Other photos on the

Simpson page contain Ron Goldman's corpse and three

other pictures of Nicole Simpson as she lays dead. Rotten

dot com has yet another sick page that caught my attention.

This one is called "Mayhem #3". There are five pictures on
