What sites do you go on when you're bored?

Postby Kurushimi » Wed Aug 26, 2009 3:51 am UTC

And you have nothing to do and just want to keep yourself occupied. I usually go to stumble upon, or browse xkcd, but I've visited both too much recently and seem to have exhausted anything that interests me there. Just looking for something to keep me busy as I really don't feel like going to sleep.

hulu.com

Joshreads.com (the comics curmudgeon) AKA making fun of all the terrible newspaper comic strips

sports.yahoo.com/nba and arizona.rivals.com when I'm in a sports mood

slashdot.org

of those I would recommend joshreads.com the most, go back to an old post and keep clicking the next post button until you realize that you're wasting too much time.

Oh, joshreads is hilarious. I only read it once in a while though. In a similar vein is photoshop disasters and cakewrecks.

It uh.. wouldn't make sense, because the filters aren't on anymore? There was like a three-post discussion in the TOP SECRET MOD HIDEOUT FORUM that went something like "hey, this is causing trouble in N&A and SB" "oh should we take it off then?" "done"

I spend a lot of time on tv tropes looking up new webcomics. When I find one that sounds interesting, I read it from the beginning. This takes up a lot of time, as most comics I read have been going on for at least a year.
