Why do travel agents still exist?

Recently I went to a travel agent, and tentatively discussed some travel plans. The dude pulled up some flight options for me on his computer. I went home and looked them up myself, and quickly found a range of other options that were 20-30% cheaper. It got me thinking why so many travel agents still exist; they don't seem to be any easier than booking online, and far from being cheaper, were actually incredibly expensive.

vacation planning to anywhere nonstop

i'm curious which travel website might allow me to see all non-stop flights from my local airport with open seats on a given weekend. there are a couple of airlines i try to avoid, so filtering on a specific airline would also be nice. basically, i want to browse possible vacation destinations using only direct flights from my slightly mid-sized Virginia airport. (i thought kayak would do this sort of thing, but haven't found a way to do it.)

Get me stranded in London, please.

As a way to visit a friend during my travels in Europe this summer, I'm looking to obtain a days-long layover - ideally at least 2-3 days, but the longer the better. I have no idea how to go about getting such a thing, but I'm relatively sure the possibility exists. What are my best options for getting a layover like this, while still keeping my overall flight cost low? [more inside]
