    Favourite time-wasting websites?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Tenderiser, Sep 15, 2016.

    What sites do you go to when you're bored or procrastinating? I need some new ones in my bookmarks, preferably funny and/or involving cat memes.

    Mine include:
    - Here, obviously
    - Facebook and Twitter
    - www.lamebook.com
    - www.notalwaysright.com
    - www.cracked.com (mostly Photoplasty)
    - www.theonion.com/ and www.thepoke.co.uk
    - http://icanhas.cheezburger.com/ (getting less tolerable as time goes on)
    - Mumsnet AIBU (entertaining as a fight usually breaks out in the first 10 posts of each thread... I watch, don't post)

    If I've exhausted all those avenues I start to hear the voices... help me...

    What. The. And indeed Fook!

    I'm assuming this is programmed to avoid adult material, but this is bat-shit crazy. Just keep clicking to change channels.

    I'm definitely a TVTropes addict. Doubt I could get through the workday without it :)

    StumbleUpon.com. You customize your interests, hit stumble, and enjoy the randomly generated page. I've found many a good game via this site.

    Also, the Map Quest game, where you have it drop you into the street view of some random place, then have to find your way to the airport (without cheating, of course).

    One for the Sci-fi fans. Enter a name and it creates a 3D space ship based on... something.

    Here's the SS OurJud: http://ship.shapewright.com/?name=OurJud

    Erm, no. That's not the prettiest, is it? You could say it's a mining ship.

    It's sort of like a Transformer trying to fart.

    My favourite time-wasting websites are:
    LFG, a web comic which I have mentioned before and have read around six times (http://www.lfg.co/page/1/)
    Pinterest (I have a serious addiction)
    http://dankoboldt.com (I get lost on this blog for hours)

    It DOES look like a pig!

    Mine's boring, but definitely not as bad as Tenderiser's.

    You'd be okay if you tilted, maybe?

    I guess there's no up or down in space, so...

    Oh, dear. I really hope that serves only as a stationary space hotel.

    Last one for now, but I can spend an unhealthy amount of time watching people unbox stuff, especially electrical goods and gadgets.

    [not strictly a website as such, so I'll just say youtube]

    :superagree:

    Your ship has the biggest dick though!

    Do you experience ASMR? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autonomous_sensory_meridian_response The ASMRtists are responsible for a lot of the unboxing videos, because it's such a trigger.
