100 Bits of Inspiration

I stumbled across the "100 situations" phenomenon recently.  The original idea was to pick a bunch of characters and run them through fanfic across the whole table.  I prefer to use the tables as random-idea generators; i.e. roll 1d100 several times and combine the results into a story or poem.

100_situations has five table promptsfanfic100 has one in its profile.

Does anyone else know more of these?  I would love to find a community that posts new tables regularly, or even just a list of more tables to explore. 

I'm also toying with the idea of making some genre-based tables of my own.  Does that appeal to anyone else?
