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.

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.

I miss the old Gamespy. It was just right for that kind of thing. Not so much anymore.

In addition to those mentioned, I recently discovered http://www.thereifixedit.com . Also, http://www.unnecessaryquotes.com/ .

4chan....I thought for sure that would be mentioned more often. http://img.4chan.org/b/imgboard.html
If you've never been there, I just ruined your life.

Lol

I remember when that first got me.

Anyways, thanks for all the sites. These should prevent me from slipping into a completely catatonic state.

It's a wordfilter. The mods have made it so certain phrases get changed around.
Including;
Bruce Schneier = Saladin's Mom (Saladin is an ex-mod)
Jesus Christ = Optimus Prime
Lol =the cheese thing

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.

TVTropes too, although not as much as I used to.
http://www.fstdt.net -- Fundies Say the Darndest Things, alternately funny and depressing.
http://www.dragcave.net although this is more than when I'm bored. : P
